The first taste of Richland Rum Single Estate Old Georgia Rum opens with notes of caramel, vanilla and espresso. Next come flavors sugar cane and tobacco followed by a long finish with hints of dark chocolate and figs. The deep golden rum, handcrafted from start to finish in Richland, Georgia, is made using only cane syrup and spring water. A pure and robust rum of unparalleled flavor, it is best enjoyed neat or with an ice cube and an orange peel.

A true reflection of the terroir of Georgia, Richland Rum is a single estate rum, with the sugar cane grown and the distillery run by the same owner. From sugar cane fermentation to distillation to aging to bottling, every step is undertaken with care, craftsmanship, and immense care for the final product. Barrels are never blended, and no preservatives, taste enhancers, coloring or additives are ever added, allowing the true flavor of the rum each bottle to stand out and to reflect the place and time where it was lovingly made.
