The perfect Rum blend for your very own Club Tropicana.

A. H. Riise was a pharmacist from Denmark who resettled in the Danish West Indies—now the US Virgin Islands. Other islands had begun distilling Rum, but none in Danish-controlled areas, so good ‘ol Mr. Riise did just that and procured a warrant to supply Rum to the Danish navy. This naturally gave rise (pardon the pun) to their first core product, Danish Navy Rum.

Today, A. H. Rise has changed hands, but it is still located in St. Croix where they acquire fresh molasses distillate from the famous Cruzan Distillery on Saint Thomas to age and blend in the creation of a full range of Rums, from youthful mixing Rums through super-premium sippers.

Black Barrel Navy Spiced Rum was infused with a secret blend of carefully chosen spices. Aged in charred oak casks, it’s where it got its name from, Black Barrel. Prepare yourself for a flavorful explosion of aromatic cinnamon and crackles of black pepper that mingle throughout the thick caramel sweetness that is the palate. Perfect for your summer cocktails!

Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
If the center of our galaxy had a signature scent, it would be Rum. Yup, astronomers studying a giant cloud in the Milky Way found a substance called ethyl formate, a chemical that smells suspiciously like Rum.
You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. The most popular suggestions are Rum (the Romani word for 'potent'), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), and Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
Rum (usually) comes from molasses, the sweet and syrupy residue of refining sugarcane into sugar. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, contributing to the final flavor.
Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’
