THE STORY

THE STORY OF THE WILD GEESE RUM COLLECTION

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 return, many had already been forced from their homes and transported to the Caribbean and Americas to work on plantations.

HOLD FAST

Sent into darkness and exile they did not flinch when faced with this unimaginable horror.
Many rebellions were to follow.
Their story and courage has been largely untold until now.

FREEDOM

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.

PEACE

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’.
