Both Richland Rum and its unrefined sugarcane syrup, Almost Rum, are certified.
Rum is traditionally made from fermented molasses. It was the original alcoholic drink of the American colonists and played a major role in the colonies’ relationship with Britain.
Slaves in the Caribbean harvested sugarcane and processed it into sugar, which was then sold to the colonists. The byproduct of sugarcane processing is molasses, which was collected in vats to ferment. The fermented mixture was distilled to create rum.
