Product Details

This offering is one of the premium aged rums from the Jamaican distillery, which grows and produces all of its own sugar. A blend of rums that are a minimum of twenty-one years old, the rum is produced in limited quantities. It displays a coppery, tawny hue, as well as floral aromas that develop into a unique bouquet of vibrant almond, deep vanilla, mellow orange peel and warm coffee and cocoa. On the palate, baked nuttiness comes on strongly, along with the flavors of molasses and oak. The finish is long and dry, with hints of sap and brown sugar. It earned a Double Gold medal at the 2014 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

About the Producer

The first known documentation of rum production at Jamaica’s Appleton Estate dates back to 1749. However, the origins of the Estate date back as far as 1655. when the British captured Jamaica from the Spaniards. Frances Dickinson took part in that British conquest, it‘s believed that the Appleton Estate was part of the land grant that Dickinson received as a reward for his services, and his grandsons were the earliest known owners of the Appleton Estate. In 1845, the Appleton Estate was acquired by William Hill, and later changed hands again when it was purchased by one of Jamaica`s most successful merchants, A. McDowell Nathan. Nathan died in the great earthquake of 1907, and his vast estate, including Appleton, was eventually acquired by J. Wray and Nephew Ltd. , which was acquired in 2012 by Gruppo Campari. Though the estate has changed hands many times since 1749, all Appleton Estate rums have always been produced from the single 11,000-acre estate in the Nassau Valley.
