What You Can Expect

Appleton Estate Rum Tour from Montego Bay

Tour Appleton Rum Estate

Following pickup at your Montego Bay hotel, hit the road for the Appleton Estate, Jamaica's famous rum distillery. Ride 2 hours to the south coast of the island, where the distillery has been producing quality rum in St Elizabeth parish since 1749. 

Begin your 60-minute guided tour with the copper pot stills, which give the rum its famous distinctive flavor. See the oak barrels in the aging house, where some of the most sought-after rum sits for up to thirty years. Learn about the distilling process, which includes a yeast culture and sugar cane molasses  mixed with limestone-filtered water. 

Taste ten different samples of Appleton rum as well as some freshly-pressed sugar cane juice, a Caribbean specialty. Pick your favorite and buy a bottle to take home with you ― some varieties of Appleton are only sold in Jamaica. 

At the end of your tour and tasting, board your bus for the scenic drive back to Montego Bay and drop-off at your hotel.
