The heritage behind Richland Rum

"...and the rest is history."

Welcome to Richland, Georgia, home to the Richland Distilling Company and Richland Rum.

Rum isn’t something one normally associates with this part of the country, but Richland produces a quality product.

Eric and Karin Vonk found themselves in Atlanta nearing what they thought was their retirement age. However, upon realizing they could grow sugar cane just a few hours away, they decided to pursue one of Eric’s teenage dreams instead. Richland Rum was born in the early 2000’s and has grown ever since.

Learn more about their story and the product in the video above.
