Richland Estate Starts 2016 Sugarcane Harvest Season with Limited Edition of Agricole Rum

Richland Rum will celebrate the start of the sugar cane harvesting season at the distillery in Richland, Georgia on December 10. A limited edition, Single Estate Old Georgia “Rum Agricole” will be distilled from this fall’s first harvested sugar cane.

Atlanta, GA, December 01, 2016 --( Richland Rum invites everyone the participate in the celebration of the start of the 2016 sugar cane harvest. On Saturday, December 10, during the day, guests will have an opportunity to taste the Limited Edition Rum Agricole, attend a sugar cane cooking demonstration and tour the distillery.

A limited edition, single-estate Georgia “rhum agricole” will be distilled from the fall’s first harvested cane and will serve as the centerpiece for this special celebration at the distillery.

Rhum agricole is the French term used for rum made directly from freshly squeezed sugar cane, a style of rum originally distilled in the French Caribbean islands. Richland Rum is regularly made exclusively from pure unrefined cane syrup - condensed fresh sugar cane juice - and never molasses, except for this special edition agricole from cane juice.

Molasses is a byproduct of the processing of refined white table sugar. It was used to produce a rum product of lesser quality in the Caribbean and the American Colonies, which became a staple of the New World economy. Most rums are mass produced today using cheap molasses as a sugar base.

"The 2016 Single Estate Georgia Agricole Limited Edition highlights the terroir of our Georgia-grown sugar cane with distinct flavors," said Erik Vonk, proprietor of Richland Rum. Terroir refers to this characteristic taste and flavor imparted to the sugar cane by the environment in which it is grown and harvested.

This special harvest event will include a demonstration of condensing sugar cane into unrefined sugar cane syrup - Almost Richland Rum Cane Syrup, along with distillery tours and tastings of America's only Single Estate Rum.

Admission: $10
