80.5/100, Silver Medal, ‘Recommended’
The renowned Rum Howler reviews The Wild Geese Golden Rum. He knows a thing or two about great rums so we’re thrilled that he scored the Golden Rum 80.5/100, which translates into a Silver Medal and ‘Recommended for sipping and/or a high quality mixer’.
‘…Rising from the glass to greet my nose is an impression of sweet butterscotch, canned apricots, orange peel, almond and vanilla. I allowed the glass to breathe a few minutes, and noticed some additional fine oak spices entering the breezes above the glass…’
The Wild Geese Rum Collection tells the story of the Irish in the Caribbean.
VOYAGES AND MEN
Ireland was torn by injustice and natural disaster. In the years leading up to the Treaty of Limerick in 1691, when The Exiles took the name The Wild Geese believing they would one day return, many had already been forced from their homes and transported to the Caribbean and Americas to work on plantations.
Sent into darkness and exile they did not flinch when faced with this unimaginable horror. Many rebellions were to follow. Their story has largely been untold until now.
Determined to win freedom, those that escaped, blazed a trail across the endless blue as liberators and pirates of the Caribbean. Navigating their way across the featureless seas and against all odds their only option being to survive and succeed.
‘BY THE SWEAT OF OUR BROW AND THE STRENGTH OF OUR BACKS YOU WILL KNOW OUR COURAGE’
Wherever you are in the world, if you are of Irish descent you are part of this story and entitled to call yourself ‘Wild Geese’.
