Appleton Estate Tours

24 reviews
Largely regarded as one of Jamaica’s best rum distilleries, Appleton Estate has been producing the liquor since 1749, making it the country’s oldest  sugar cane  estate  and distillery.  With its sprawling sugar cane plantations and modern facilities, the estate covers a vast 11,000-acre plot in the  fertile Nassau  Valley, hemmed in by the Santa Cruz Mountains and  the  Black  River.  Today, the historic  estate produces about 10 million liters of rum per year, including a variety of gold, white and aged rums.

The Appleton Estate is open to the public, and touring the distillery makes for a popular day trip from Negril or Montego  Bay.  As well as tasting an array of different rums, visitors  can gain insight into the traditional distillation methods using  200-year-old  copper  pot stills, try their hand at time-honored  methods of cane-juicing and sugar boiling, visit the barrel houses where the rum is aged and sample fresh sugar cane juice, while learning all about how rum is produced.
