The A.H. Riise distillery is located on St. Thomas Island, an American Virgin Island in the Caribbean. Before this island became an American territory, it was a Danish colony. Around the 1840s, the pharmacist Albert Heinrich was not only allowed to open a pharmacy, but also to produce alcohol. The term 'Non Plus Ultra' comes from Roman mythology. The Pillars of Heracles, built near the Strait of Gibraltar, mark the boundary of the end of the world. This rum honours nothing other than the concept of 'no more'/'nothing beyond'. The A.H. Riise Non Plus Ultra BLACK EDITION is a special version of the Non Plus Ultra Rum. Only the best and oldest rums from A.H. Riise's stock are used, with charred oak barrels (black barrels) also finding their use.Tasting notes:Colour: Very dark, almost black. Nose: Peaches, milk chocolate, caramel, butter, slightly burnt.
