A tale of bourbon and pirates with a little Shakespearean flair!
Kingston, Jamaica 1785. Despite a tropical storm hitting the island, Sarah, the bartender at Henry’s, opens the pub for the night. When an old sea captain takes a seat and she offers him a drink, his reply is cryptic and, he warns, it leads to a story. Insisting he continue, a regular patron buys his first round and thus the adventure begins . . .
It’s 1742, Europe is a battlefield and a rebellion brews in Scotland. In the Americas, Mairi, a young Scotswoman, stumbles upon an innovative method for distilling whiskey. The spirit attracts the attention of Clarkeson, a beautiful Irish pirate, and she seizes a British ship rumored to have several barrels aboard. Declaring a personal war on the English, she executes the captain and claims the Caribbean Sea.
As her notoriety crosses the Atlantic, it reaches an English pirate-hunter fighting the Spanish in the Mediterranean. Intrigued by the stories, he and his crew of whisky drinkers are faced with a conundrum—are the reports of this pirate, and her ‘Oakies’, credible enough to make it worth taking the journey to the New World?
