Richland Rum encompasses so much more than a brand. The name represents the town in which the Rum is born- Richland, GA where fertile and sandy soils, warm rays of sunshine, and natural waters from the Georgia aquifer combine to form an exquisite rum-making terroir. Richland Rum is The Spirit of Georgia™ .
A creative and unique spirit.
DEFINING SINGLE ESTATE
The term "Single Estate" carries with it a distinguishing trait of authenticity. In its purest sense, the term represents the mantra field to glass, in that every step of the Rum Making Process is conducted within the same estate- no outside products, pieces, or ingredients are used in order to yield Richland Rum. Richland Rum is the only Single Estate Rum Distillery in the United States…in this regard, Richland Rum is truly authentic.
When you're the only one, you're truly authentic.
Our commitment to high standards is not confined to the Rum Making Process alone. We recognize the need to practice a more efficient farming method in order to not deplete the resources available to us, which is why we impart good land stewardship techniques such as using flames to burn out weeds and irrigating with natural water from the Georgia Aquifer.
Recognizing a World Beyond Ourselves
The burgeoning of a masterpiece comes with the first sprouts of Richland Estate grown Sugar Cane. Nature's processes are the only artistry needed to awaken the Richland Rum Creative Spirit.
Our naturally grown Sugar Cane is reduced to 100%, unrefined, Pure Sugar Cane Syrup through the use of cast iron syrup kettles, the same process that authentic rum makers used centuries ago.
Our Pure Sugar Cane Syrup heads to the next act in our performance, where the live organism of Yeast is called upon to ferment the Syrup into a Syrup Wine of about 13% ABV.
Distillation may be one of the more intricate acts in our performance. At this time, the human intelligence makes an appearance to allow only the finest spirits to continue into the aging process.
The Aging Process is a patient dialogue between the Rum and Virgin White Oak Barrels. Each Barrel has its own sense of maturity, and thus, the Rum and Barrels tell us when the Spirit is ready, not the other way around.
THE RICHLAND EXPERIENCE
Richland Rum awakens a certain intellectual vigor within in those who get to enjoy…thoughts of modern age's fruitless stresses become replaced by the more endearing forms of thought which mark the value of each era's greatest contribution. It is with these feelings of transcendence that we hope you will enjoy with your own Richland Experience…cheers!
