The Florida-based producer filled barrels with distilled water and sent them 90 feet below sea level, down to the USS Mohawk Veterans Memorial Reef last week. The barrels were then raised 72 hours later, and will be used to create the rum, named Sunken Barrel USS Mohawk CGC Reserve.
Wicked Dolphin Rum and Lee Reefs have joined forces to create the rum, with 100% of the profits benefitting both the Lee Reefs program and the Special Operations Bionic Warriors; a foundation that ensures wounded, injured or ill US Special Operations veterans/athletes receive equipment, coaching and help to ensure achievement of their athletic goals. We’re proud to be able to create this special rum to honor the spirit of our servicemen – past and present,” said Wicked Dolphin Distillery owner, JoAnn Elardo. “The Mohawk Reef is a wonderful setting to bring this product to life.”
The rum will be available for purchase at Wicked Dolphin Distillery, based in Cape Coral at an RRP of US $39.99 for a 750ml bottle. There will be 200 signature bottles sold with the name “Sunken Barrel USS Mohawk CGC Reserve.”
