RICHLAND, GA, July 8th 2013 – The Richland Distilling Company is partnering with Premium Brands, INC. – the Wine and Spirits Division of Carter Distributing Company in Chattanooga, TN, - to introduce and distribute Richland Rum in South-Eastern Tennessee.
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 organic 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.
Bob Monroe, General Sales Manager of Carter 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, superior products by sophisticated consumers. We are delighted to be taking Richland Rum to the Chattanooga market and we take great pride in our partnership with the Richland Distilling Company”.
We at Rick The Rum Runner are very happy about this. Great to see this distillery grow and get closer to spreading Richland Rum further!
