A.H. Riise Royal Danish Navy Rum
A.H. Riise // US Virgin Islands
A.H. Riise was originally a pharmacist who created St. Thomas Pharmacy, a pharmacy in the Caribbean Islands known for carrying a large inventory of resources through the connections Riise made in North America along with his travels around the Caribbean. Riise's interest in botany led him to creating alcohol and perfume in addition to pharmaceutical goods with the supplies he collected. This non-chill-filtered rum is a recreation of the original "Royal Navy Rum" created by Riise using the original formula. It combines different rum distillates up to 20 years old of the "Vedderburn and Plummer" type and is bottled at 40% ABV.
Navy RumAged rum that are often blends of rums from English-colonized countries such as Jamaica, Trinidad, British Guyana, and Barbados. Technically, navy-strength rums are 54.5% ABV or higher, though not all overproof rums are Navy Rums. Taste-wise, Navy Rums are usually rich and funky, and best used in Tiki drinks or punches.
