Appleton Estate is authentic Jamaican rum that is made in the Cockpit Country – a unique, lush and fertile terrain that is nestled inland, in Jamaica’s beating heart. The beautifully complex and aromatic Appleton Estate rums are produced on our estate, which makes it one of the few rums in the world to claim a terroir—and the only rum in the world that has a terroir as unique as the Nassau Valley. “Terroir” is a set of unique weather, soil and geographic demarcations that impart a unique quality to all of our rums. Proof that it really does matter where your rum comes from.
At the Appleton Estate, the production of our rums is a craft. Every step in the process is carefully managed, from the selection of the varieties of sugarcane that are grown on the Estate, to the natural culture of yeast used in fermentation, to our unique distillation and blending methods. Appleton Estate has the distinction of being the oldest sugar estate and distillery in Jamaica in continuous production, crafting this delicious rum with the warmth, passion and unique spirit of Jamaica for more than 265 years.
Appleton Estate Reserve Blend Jamaican Rum is a ‘blended rum’, which means it is a combination of several rums of different styles and ages and does not have an age statement. There are 20 select aged rums, aged for an average of 6 years.
