Kirk and Sweeney

Designed by Studio 32 North | Country: United States

“Kirk and Sweeney was a wooden schooner, best known for smuggling rum from the Caribbean to the Northeast during the early years of Prohibition. The bottle and the raised cork were inspired by the elegantly squat 18th-century onion bottles, which typically contained rum. Playing off the concept of global navigation, an antique nautical map of the main rum smuggling route is silkscreened around the circumference of the bottle. The neck features custom hand-numbering, which speaks to the rare and precious nature of the cargo. Along with the ornate logo, the photo of the ship and the safety seal printed to look like nautical brass, the design serves as a reminder of the risk so many were willing to take for a taste of quality Carribean rum during the 1920’s.”
