It all began when Alois Gölles, the father of David Gölles, designed the chocolate spirit in collaboration with Josef Zotter. From that day on, the family began to produce rum. The son, David Gölles, then founded the Ruotker's company in Riegersburg, in Styria. Today, Ruotker's offers high-quality whiskies, rums and gins. The brand Ron Johan Rum is not only dedicated to Archduke Johann (Johan), but also to the Caribbean (Ron). The "Ron Johan Dark Rum" is used here as the basis for the "Ron Johan Vanilla" distilled in Styria. Pirate Black Beard and the Austrian Archduke Johann can be seen on the bottle. Tasting notes:Colour: Amber. Nose: Elegant, mysterious. Taste: Soft, creamy, vanilla. Finish: Long lasting, sweet.
