Full description
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 gives the rum a distinctive flavor. Take a look inside the aging 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, pick up a bottle of the Appleton Estate Rums that is only sold within Jamaica, before boarding your bus back to Negril.
