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!

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).
Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.
Common Rum classifications: White, Golden or Amber, Dark, Spiced, Añejo and Age-Dated Rums.
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.’
You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
