2020 is off to a fast start here at Richland Rum! In January, Erik and Karin were guests at the Georgia State Capital accepting a lifetime achievement award on behalf of Richland Rum for the company’s impact on rural economic development in the state of Georgia. In early February, our brand new tasting room in Richland opened up and it looks absolutely stunning. The new tasting room entrance is right on Broad Street and has additional bar space with an expanded gift shop. For everyone who has visited the Richland Distillery in the past, it really will be a pleasant shock to see the renovations. This weather is making it hard to decide if we should be sharing a warm weather cocktail or a cold weather cocktail, so we split the difference and provided a recipe for our “Richland Russian”. We have been preparing the Richland Russian with our rum barrel aged roasted coffee made by our friends at Café Campesinos and it is delicious. We still have a few bags of coffee available for purchase at the store here in Richland. Last thing, The 2020 Taste of Richland is fast approaching (Sunday, April 26, 2-5 pm) so be sure and grab your tickets soon!
