Richland, GA, November 26, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The Richland Distilling Company – artisan crafters of Richland Rum – announced today the opening of new facilities in support of its continued growth. Located adjacent to the company’s Distillery, the expansion is housed in a restored historic building and includes a barrelhouse and the Richland Rum Experience Center.
Experience Center showcases creation of authentic, all natural, handcrafted Georgia Rum
"The new barrel house significantly increases our aging capacity and will help us in meeting the robust demand for Richland Rum while further solidifying product quality and the integrity of the aging process,” said Erik Vonk, founder and owner of the company.
“In addition, the new Experience Center and Tasting Room enable us to showcase our artisan craftsmanship in detail for the growing number of rum enthusiasts.”
Vonk continued: “The fact that the Distillery is an integral part of our family owned Vennebroeck Estate has allowed us over the years to bring back a ‘farm to bottle’ approach in making all natural, authentic Rum from fresh sugar cane syrup - not molasses. Handling all aspects of artisan product creation in-house translates into superior quality and intrigues many people. With the new facility in place, we can now share a complete ‘Richland Rum Experience’ with guests.”
The Richland Distilling Company welcomes visitors and hosts tours, tastings and events dedicated to rum science.
