Appleton Rum Estate

Appleton Rum Estate

Appleton Estates Tour: "From harvesting to sipping a multi-sensory journey through the essence of Jamaican Spirit."

The day begins with driving through the beautiful Pedro Plains farmland and on to the historic town of Black River, where you can pick up whatever supplies you may need.

Continue through Bamboo Avenue, a 3-mile long stretch of road shaded by an archway of giant bamboo.

Then it is off to the newly renovated state of the art Appleton Rum Factory Tour. Learn of the early methods of distillation, complete with demonstrations, right on up to today’s distillation processes. Once you’ve toured the facilities you will understand why Jamaican rum is known as some of the best rum in the world. Of course, no rum tour would be complete without the rum tasting!

On arrival, visitors are lead into the Welcome Centre and treated to a complimentary cocktail. With a soothing blend of Appleton Estate Signature Blend rum and ginger beer in their hands (aptly named stormy valley), a knowledgeable guide takes visitors along a path back in time, explaining the history of the estate, both old and new sugar production processes, fermentation, distillation and how they move from cane to cup to produce some of the finest rum in the world. The tour is a sensory experience; guests taste succulent sugar cane and have a chance to extract its juice themselves using a method from the 17th-century. The tour concludes in the tasting rooms where visitors sample three exquisite premium Appleton Estates blends – Signature Blend, Reserve Blend and Rare Blend 12 Year Old – and learn how to critically analyze rums.

On the way out, visitors pass through the Appleton shop, where the Estate Jamaica rums can be purchased. The perfect way to bring home the warmth and flavor of the heart of Jamaica.

End the day with a lovely drive on a country road taking you along the base of the Santa Cruz Mountains and back home to Treasure Beach.
