Handcrafted in the Dominican Republic, this rum adheres to the very strict regulations to be called “Dominican Rum”. To qualify as Dominican Rum the harvesting of the sugar cane, processing into molasses, distillation and aging must take place in the Dominican Republic.
The process begins with high quality sugar cane sourced just south of Santo Domingo and is processed into grade three Blackstrap Molasses. After fermentation and distillation the rum is then oak barreled for a rum well worth pursuing.
KIRK AND SWEENEY was a wooden schooner, best known for smuggling
rum from the Caribbean to the Northeast during the early years of
Prohibition. In 1924, it was seized off the coast of New York with a massive
amount of rum aboard. The schooner was subsequently renamed “Chase”
and pressed into duty as a Coast Guard trainer, serving until the late 1940’s
when it was retired and salvaged.
