Appleton Estate Rum Tour: Full Day from Montego Bay

1. Appleton Estate Rum Tour: Full Day from Montego Bay

Head out on a fantastic full-day excursion to the Appleton Estate and Distillery on the south coast of Jamaica, where they’ve been hand-crafting rums since 1749. Appleton produces a wide variety of aged rums, as well as the standard golds and whites. Located in the heart of the country's sugar cane belt, it is the oldest sugar estate and distillery in Jamaica. Sugar cane on the estate is harvested both by machine and in the old-fashioned way, with men wielding machetes. The Appleton Rum Estate parent company also produces the popular Wray & Nephew White Overproof Rum. On the tour you’ll gain a unique insight into part of Jamaica's history and rich, complex culture. Experience firsthand the historic production process of Appleton Estate rums. See some of the earliest methods of extracting juice from sugarcane, learn about the unique distillation process in the company’s 200-year-old-pot stills, and visit one of the barrel houses, where the rums age to perfection. By the end of the rum tour and having tasted the products you’ll have a better understanding why Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum is the finest in the world.

What people are saying about St. James Parish

We expected the driver who picks us up at the Great House stays with us and goes through with us. This was not the case, he was really only the driver and at the Great House was another 25 dollar entry due. The tour was then conducted by a tour guide of the house. Therefore, the price was only too expensive for the drive there, as it is better to take a taxi at the port and go there. The tour in the Great House itself was great and highly recommended, but you do not need to book this here

Shaldon was a great guide! Everything went great and it was well organized and timed. It makes sense to visit the NY Falls and the Pelican Bar early in the morning, because more and more tourists (groups) come from midday. Don't forget water shoes for the NY Falls. At the waterfalls, locals help you through the water. Tipping is not "obligatory", but is appreciated. Also by the boatman to the Pelican Bar. So it's good to have a few bucks in your pocket.
