The Charleston Gold Aromatic Rice 3-Pack is for the frequent user of Charleston Gold and the avid gift-giver. Don’t take the risk of running out of a rice that is formulated to soak up flavor and add a taste that is all its own.
Lavington Farms Charleston Gold Aromatic Rice is the aromatic descendant of the much-heralded Carolina Gold strand that has flourished in the Lowcountry's kitchens for years.
The rice is known by its rich golden hull and distinct, unmatched nutty flavor. The grain is cultivated and harvested right here in the Lowcountry of South Carolina.
Produced by Lavington Farms, the Charleston Gold Aromatic Rice is representative of the perfect marriage of a quintessential southern staple and a delectable basmati rice with deep international roots.
This gold aromatic rice was developed and modified in its namesake’s state of South Carolina in the late 20th-century by Drs. Buford Shepard of Clemson University and Gurdev Kush of the International Rice Research Institute.
The two sought to create a short stature gold hulled rice that kept the traditional plush mouth feel of Carolina Gold and maintained the distinct fragrance of an East Indian cool weather rice. Dr. Anna McClung continued to refine the plant into what it is now: Charleston Gold.
Today, the popular rice is used in home kitchens nationwide, in professional and restaurant kitchens throughout the Lowcountry, and frequently pops up on countless menus in Charleston’s booming food scene.
