A.H. Riise 1888 Gold Medal Rum

There was a distinctly international atmosphere in Copenhagen in 1888 as the city hosted the Great Nordic Exhibition of Industry, Agriculture and Art. The exhibition opened on 18 May and covered the area that is now occupied by the City Hall Square, Tivoli and the Confederation of Danish Industry’s building.

A. H. Riise also participated in the Great Nordic Exhibition in Copenhagen. His rum was showcased on the West Indian pavilion and was awarded a gold medal for ‘Outstanding Product’. It is that honour, and special event that we celebrate with the launch of this rare 1888 Gold Medal Edition Rum.
