A.H. Riise Non Plus Ultra Sauternes Cask Rum
The term “Non Plus Ultra” originates from Hercules pillars of the Roman mythology which was built near the Gibraltar Strait and marked the boundary of the known world.
The columns bore the inscription “Non Plus Ultra” (Latin) This means (Nothing Further Beyond) as a warning to seafarers not to continue the voyage into the unknown world.
This Rum specifically honors the term “Non Plus Ultra” which loosely translated means “The Best” or “None after this” as it is the best and oldest rum that we have available. The Non Plus Ultra “Sauternes Cask” is a special version of the Non Plus Ultra Rum. It has aged a further six months on Sauternes Casks from Chateau Lafon.
This cask finish ageing produces a very full bodied and fruity rum with notes of honey, apricot and peach and a velvety soft and delicately sweet aftertaste and a finish with notes of vanilla and raisins.
A Super Premium Rum in strictly limited quantities of which only 12.000 bottles are produced per year.
