A blend of Dark Demerara Rums from Guyana with plenty of heat and an anise base note.

Drinksology Kirker Greer was founded in 2007 by Steven Pattison and Richard Ryan. Still independently owned, they are based in Belfast Northern Ireland but have strategically located offices in Dublin, London, and New York. They consistently churn out a delightful selection of Spirits from scratch in a creative frenzy for such a young company. Their exceptional products range widely across the landscape from Whiskies and Gins to Rums and Liqueurs.

One of the most famous Irish pirates in the Caribbean during the early 1700s was also a woman — Red Bonny. Since Kirker Greer is headquartered in Ireland, it is only fitting that they named this swarthy Dark Rum after the feisty lass.

Red Bonny Dark Rum is a blend of Demerara sugar Rums from Guyana. They are matured in darkly-toasted oak for up to three years just a few degrees of latitude above the Equator — and Spirits age quickly under that tropical sun.

Smartass Corner:
Anne "Red" Bonny was a real person. She was one of the two most famous female pirates of the era. She was born in County Cork, Ireland, with bright red hair. But she was fierce in plunder and battle — often disguising herself as a man to join the fighting.

Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
If the center of our galaxy had a signature scent, it would be Rum. Yup, astronomers studying a giant cloud in the Milky Way found a substance called ethyl formate, a chemical that smells suspiciously like Rum.

Mount Gay Rum is the oldest existing Rum company in the World dating back to 1705. This is also the year Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Britain’s Parliament.
Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.
You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
