Our portfolio includes much-loved brands such as A.H. Riise Rum, Tranquebar Gin, Kronborg Akvavit, Santos Dumont Rum, Starka Vodka and Krabask Bitters.
A.H. Riise Spirits is still a relative young company, but many of our spirits have a long history going back many hundreds of years. Tranquebar Gin’s origins date back to the mid-17th century, in 1770 Humphrey Taylor founded the Chelsea Distillery for Liqueurs & Cordials and A.H. Riise began distilling rum on the Caribbean island of Saint Thomas in the 1830s. A.H. Riise Spirits exports these and other brands to over 25 countries across the globe.
Headquartered in Copenhagen our ever-growing success has stemmed from commitment to innovation, use of proprietary formulae, high-quality standards, unique consumer brands, loyalty to partners – suppliers, bottlers, distributors–, and responsiveness to customers.
