This rum has been recreated accordingly to the original formula of the "Royal Navy Rum" exactly as Albert Heinrich Riise created and designed it. This superb rum is a combination of several different, up to 20 years old rum distillates. This molasses-based rum is produced by slow fermentation. This method results in a fantastic rum with an extremely dark, almost black color. Riise's Royal Navy Rum is hand blended in small batches and is not cold filtered nor is caramel added.
