For 265 years Appleton Estate has handcrafted the finest aged rums from 'cane to cup', harvesting estate-grown sugar cane, sourcing water from a limestone spring, and meticulously managing each step in the fermentation, distillation, blending and ageing processes.
The beautifully complex and aromatic Appleton Estate rums are of a unique style showcasing the unique terroir of Jamaica's Nassau Valley. All Appleton Estate rums are produced on a single estate in a small circumscribed geographic area, which makes it one of the few rums in the world to claim a terroir.
Appleton Estate Rare Blend 12 Year Old Jamaica Rum is a true expression of Joy Spences, our Master Blender, craft and passion. The rare, golden rums that make up Appleton Estate Rare are hand-selected and have all been aged for a minimum of 12 years. The long years of tropical aging gives it its rich mahogany hue, confident woody character and smooth, robust taste. The luxurious flavors include superbly blended notes of orange peel, caramel, spice and wood. This full-bodied, balanced rum is excellent for sipping neat or on the rocks, or in classic cocktails like the Original Daiquiri, Appleton Estate Manhattan, or Rum Old-Fashioned.
