The history of
In June 1838, the Danish Government officially appointed Albert Heinrich Riise as the exclusive pharmacist for the caribbean island, Saint Thomas, part of the former Danish West Indies. This granted him monopoly status to produce alcohol in his pharmacy.
Initially, Albert developed rum and bitters as medicine for stomach ills. However, his rum soon gained popularity beyond its medical function, and in 1893 he received an International Medal at the World Exhibition in Chicago. A.H. Riise created strong brands such as “Old St. Croix”, “Riises Guava Rum” and “A.H Riise Rum”.
He was awarded many honorary positions on the island of St. Thomas. At one point he was Director of the National Bank of St. Thomas and was made Knight of the Order of Dannebrog in 1860.
