Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum

Established in 1749, Appleton Estate is one of the Caribbean’s – and, indeed, the world’s – oldest and best-known rum distilleries.

Having played a key role in establishing Jamaica rum’s world-renowned character and reputation for both flavour and quality, Appleton Estate has decided to update its design philosophy for 2020. The rum remains as fruity, funky and delicious as ever, the Appleton bottle retains its classic, contoured shape – but you’ll find more information about the spirit you’re sipping than ever before on the labels.

With no added flavour to influence taste or aroma, Appleton Estate Signature sets the tone for the distillery’s entire range: fruity and full-flavoured.

Signature is a blend of pot- and column-distilled rums which have been aged for an average of four years to achieve a soft and fruity profile rich with apricot and peach notes, and underlined by a foundation of rich molasses. The softness of this spirit makes it the perfect anchor for cocktails like the Jamaican Daiquiri.

8 Year Old Reserve 2020 Release

Appleton Estate’s middle sibling is blended from pot- and column-still rums aged in oak barrels for a minimum of eight years. A weightier spirit, this rum is host to a certain honeyed heft, laden with spiced-fruit flavours, a hint of oak, a touch of zesty orange peel and lighter vanilla notes.

Carefully balanced rum, this eight-year-old can be sipped by itself, just as it can bring some weight to fruity cocktails like the Mai Tai.

Jamaica Rum

Appleton Estate is one of a select group of distilleries on the planet who can make legitimate claims of terroir in their spirit – the rum is made exclusively from sugar cane grown on the Estate itself in Jamaica’s lush, verdant Nassau Valley, and every drop is aged on the island. The creation of Appleton Estate rum begins and ends in the same place, and the distillery can – and does – oversee every stage of the process.

It is this local approach that has made Appleton Estate so synonymous with Jamaican rum itself, its spirit helping to form the very foundations upon which the island’s rum reputation is built.
