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 inspiration for this bottling is based on the original recipes for Royal Navy Rums. The recipes were developed by A.H. Riise and the rum was delivered to the fleet ships when they docked in the harbour of Charlotte Amalie, in the former Danish West Indies. The A.H. Riise Royal Danish Navy consists of various rum distillates up to 20 years old. It is blended by hand in small batches and is not cold-filtered.Tasting notes:Colour: Mahogany.
