What You Can Expect

Appleton Estate Rum Tour from Negril

Tour Appleton Rum Estate in Jamaica!

After pickup from your hotel in Negril, your tour to Appleton Estate starts with the approximate 2-hour drive east along 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 flavor, 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 flavor.

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 Negril.

Great tour! The guided tour of the facility was interesting and informative, plus the tastings were excellent. I enjoyed the drive from Negril, as our guide had a lot of great information on things we passed on the trip.

The drive to Appleton Rum Estate was long, but beautiful. Our tour guide let us stop and get a beer at a local stop, try new fruit from a fruit stand, and even get jerk pork from a side of the road stop! Our tour guide was informative about everything from the towns we were driving through to politics and history. His information and cool stops along the way made the long drive worth it. The tour itself was informative and the tasting was great. I would note that the 'free bottle of rum' is a mini bottle that only contains a shot of alcohol.
