A wonderful, exquisitely-aged Rum from the Dominican Republic made from blackstrap molasses and delivered at cask strength in a gorgeous crystal presentation decanter.

At the heart 3 Badge Beverage Corp. is August Sebastiani — forth generation grandson of Samuele Sebastiani, founder of Sebastiani Winery in Sonoma. This family has been making premium adult beverages for a LONG time. Interestingly, Sebastiani Winery was the only California winery that didn’t close during prohibition. How’d they pulled that off? Anyway, the folks at 3 Badge keep cranking out some of the best sourced craft Spirits PERIOD. Currently, they produce a tidy range of Wines, Gins, Whiskies, Tequilas, and Rums and you should try them all.

The Rum brand of 3 Badge is the Kirk & Sweeney lineup. All of them are created in Santiago de los Caballeros in the Dominican Republic. Kirk & Sweeney XO is special. It’s hand crafted from blackstrap molasses. The core lineup of Kirk and Sweeney Rums is available in twelve, eighteen, and twenty-three year-old versions — all of them exceptional and a great value. The XO is the top of the line special edition, and it shows. It is a blend of old Rums aged in American oak and delivered at cask strength (65.5% ABV) in a stunning crystal decanter that’s hand etched and gold-filled.

Smartass corner:
The Kirk and Sweeney was a ship — a schooner used for Rum-running during Prohibition. In 1924 it was seized by federal agents off the coast of New York with a heavy load of contraband Rum sitting on deck. Were it not so heavily loaded the speedy ship might have slipped away.

Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
