Meet and Greet with Richland Rum's Erik Vonk

Meet and Greet with Richland Rum's Erik Vonk

This Saturday, June 14th, from 2-5pm, at Tower Beer, Wine, ad Spirits in Buckhead will be hosting Erik Vonk, Richland Rum's Distiller. Vonk hails from Holland, but after a career that brought him to Atlanta in 1991, he settled in South Georgia — first with a house and farm, then with a distillery. Now, he's not only distilling, aging, and bottling Richland Rum in South Georgia, he's doing it with Georgia-grown sugar cane. Unlike the much more common molasses-based rums, rum distilled directly from sugar cane syrup helps to retain the delicate flavors inherent in the cane. Accolades and awards — gold at this year's SIP Awards and International Craft Awards — have come pouring in, proving that Georgia rum is indeed something worth talking about.

Richland Rum is a perfect Father's Day gift that would be even better with it being signed by the distiller himself. We hope to see you there Saturday!
