Go on a journey to the picturesque south coast of Jamaica on a visit to the Appleton Estate, home of the finest rum in the world. Take a tour of the distillery, sit down to taste 10 different rum varieties, & bring home a full bottle of rumDescription
Your experience begins with your pick-up at your hotel lobby, where you are driven along a scenic roadway to the south coast of Jamaica and into the Nassau Valley in St Elizabeth, where the estate has been making rum since 1749.
When you arrive, your 45-minute guided tour will begin. Visit the distillery to see Appleton's copper pot stills, which give the rum a distinctive flavour, and take a look inside the ageing house, where the rum sits in oak barrels, some for up to 30 years.
Learn about the prestigious history of Appleton Estate, one of the oldest distilleries in Jamaica, and hear about its fermentation process, during which sugar cane molasses and a special yeast culture combine with water that has been filtered naturally by limestone to create Appleton’s much-loved flavour.
Next, it’s time for samples! In addition to 10 different types of Jamaican rum, try a bit of freshly pressed cane juice. Then spend a little time browsing the gift shop for souvenirs (perhaps an exclusive bottle of Appleton Estate rum that’s only sold in Jamaica?) before boarding your bus back to your hotel.Highlights
