A.H. Riise XO 1888 Gold Medal is a delicious blend made of several distillates carefully chosen by our Master blender from rum distilleries in the West Indies and Central America. These soft, sweet, and creamy drops have aged in oak casks and brings a perfectly rounded fullness of “liquid gold” to the glass and pallet.
A.H. Riise XO 1888 Gold Medal is created to celebrate Albert Heinrich Riise and his successful career as a pharmacist on the Island of Saint Thomas in the Danish West Indies. Albert Heinrich Riise received many rewards and medals for his work, amongst these he received great honor for his products at the prestigious ‘Nordiske Industri-Landbrugs & Kunstudstilling’ exhibition back in 1888.
