Appleton Estate Tours

star-5
25 Reviews
Appleton Estate
Largely regarded as one of Jamaica’s best rum distilleries, the Appleton Estate has been producing the liquor since 1749. With its sprawling sugarcane plantations and facilities, the estate covers an 11,000-acre (4,452-hectare) plot and makes about 10 million liters of rum per year.
 
The Basics
 The country’s oldest sugarcane estate and distillery, Appleton makes for a popular day trip from Negril, Ocho Rios, or Montego Bay. Besides tasting an array of different rums, you’ll gain insight into traditional distillation methods using 200-year-old copper pot stills. You can also try your hand at time-honored methods of cane juicing and sugar boiling, visit the barrel houses where the rum is aged, and sample fresh sugarcane juice.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Even if you aren’t big into rum, the Appleton Estate is a great spot to head to if you want to experience the natural beauty of interior Jamaica.
  • On-site dining is available at the estate’s Black River Lounge (reservations are recommended).
  • Rum and related products are available at the on-site gift shop.
  • The Appleton Estate is accessible to wheelchairs.
How to Get There
The estate is situated in the fertile Nassau Valley, hemmed in by the Santa Cruz Mountains and the Black River. Most visitors arrive on a shore excursion or as part of a tour, but it’s easy to get there on your own by car. The drive takes about two hours from either Montego Bay or Negril, or around two hours and 45 minutes from Ocho Rios.
 
When to Get There
The Appleton Estate is typically open to the public Monday through Saturday (except for major holidays). Guided tours normally start every hour and last around two hours—booking ahead is advised.

Bubbling Spring Mineral Bath
If you’d like to tack on an off-the-beaten-path experience before or after your distillery visit, pop over to the Bubbling Spring Mineral Bath, about a 30-minute drive away. Soak in local-spring-sourced mineral water believed to soothe sore muscles and provide relief from arthritis pain. There’s also a waterslide, volleyball area, and bar and restaurant.
Address: Appleton Estate, St. Elizabeth, Jamaica
Hours: Monday - Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
