Introducing authentic, all natural, hand-crafted Domestic Rum

Richland Rum is proudly hand-made in Richland, GA, to rekindle the standards once set by makers of fine Rhum Agricole and Cachaça, while reversing the negative trend in quality expectations among consumers, brought on by mass production and bulk blending practices.

Sourcing and processing of pure, all natural sugar cane syrup, slow fermentation, copper pot distilling in single day batches, aging in American oak barrels and ultimately bottling when reaching maturity, are all handled on-premise, with one objective: to bring out the amazing purity, floral qualities, harmonious aromas and velvet elegancy of aged rum, made from natural sugar cane syrup.

“Richland Rum is honest and authentic and does not depend on celebrity endorsements or marketing ploys to project an imaginary experience as a substitute for quality” said Erik Vonk, the company’s founder and proprietor. “Our Rum is not mass produced, not blended, not imported, does not contain any additives, preservatives or molasses and no aspect of our production has been outsourced”.

Paul Turner, General Marketing & Operations Manager of Ajax Distributing Company added: “Richland Rum is a great addition to our growing spirits portfolio; its premium quality meets the increasing demand for high end, hand crafted and superior products by sophisticated consumers. We are delighted to be taking Richland Rum to our market and we take great pride in our partnership with the Richland Distilling Company”.
