Appleton Estate Rum Tour

Your journey from the second city on the north coast takes you through Jamaica’s lush countryside to the home of Jamaica’s Famous Rum, Appleton Estate. Enjoy a narrated sightseeing drive as your guide unfolds Jamaica's history in a lively and interactive discussion. Upon arrival to Appleton Estate, you’ll be welcomed with a rum punch or soda. Enjoy a snack in the lounge before being taken on a guided tour of the estate that begins with a demonstration of the extraction of cane juice as it was in the 18th century. You’ll view the distillery that showcases the different methods of distillation of Pot Stills and Column Stills.


A visit to the Ageing House and V/X House reveals large quantities of rum barrels including ‘Hogs Head’ and ‘Viper’. Also on display are historical sugar artifacts and visitors can crush sugar cane at the ‘Cane Mill’ and taste sugar cane juice and white rum. Sample wet sugar, boiled in large copper pans at the Wet Sugar House, and then, if you dare, taste all 14 different rums and liquors made by Appleton Estate. Before leaving, take some time to browse the hospitality lounge, its bar and gift shops. A souvenir miniature bottle of Appleton rum is provided before your departure.
