Richland Distilling Company

Richland Distilling Company has been making single estate rum in Richland, Georgia since 2011. These are the rums they’re currently producing:

  • Single Estate Virgin Coastal Georgia Rum, a pot-distilled, cane syrup-based rum that rests 60 days in toasted new American white oak barrels it’s bottled unfiltered at 86 proof with no added sweeteners, flavors, or color. The cane syrup used in the rum’s base is made from the distillery’s own sugarcane, which is grown on site.

  • Single Estate Old Georgia Rum, which starts the same as their Virgin Coastal rum, but is aged 32-40 months in more heavily charred new American white oak barrels before it’s bottled from single barrels at 86 proof.

  • Single Estate Old Georgia Rum (Cask Strength), a version of the Old Georgia Rum that’s bottled at cask strength (usually between 105 and 120 proof).

  • Single Estate Old Georgia Rum (Terrapin Barrel Exchange), a limited release of Old Georgia Rum that’s been through a collaborative aging process. For the first three years, it’s aged the usual way in new American white oak barrels. Then, those barrels are emptied and sent to Terrapin Brewing Company, where they’re used to age a Double India Pale Ale for a year. When the DIPA is finished, the barrels are sent back to Richland and the Old Georgia Rum is added back into the barrels for another year before it’s bottled from single barrels at 86 proof.

  • Single Estate Old Georgia Rum (Chateau Elan Barrel Exchange), another limited release of Old Georgia Rum that’s aged in the same fashion as the Terrapin Barrel Exchange release. In this case, however, the barrels are exchanged with Chateau Elan Winery, where they are used to age Port before being returned to Richland to finish aging the rum. Bottled from single barrels at 86 proof.
