For over 265 years, Appleton Estate has been crafting award-winning aged rums in the heart of Jamaica. Master blender Joy Spence created the 8 Year Old Reserve to celebrate Appleton Estates 250th anniversary, and her signature on every bottle commemorates that commitment to quality. Each rum featured in this new blend was crafted in the unique terroir of the Nassau Valley with limestone- filtered water and no added flavors. As the label attests, each golden rum was aged a minimum of 8 years in Jamaicas tropical climate to achieve an unparalleled flavor marked by a deep bronze complexion. Our new flagship expression is perfect for transforming ordinary drinks into truly extraordinary cocktails.

Appleton Estate is authentic Jamaican rum that is made in the Cockpit Country – a unique, lush and fertile terrain that is nestled inland, in Jamaica's beating heart. The beautifully complex and aromatic Appleton Estate rums are produced on our estate, which makes it one of the few rums in the world to claim a terroir--and the only rum in the world that has a terroir as unique as the Nassau Valley. "Terroir" is a set of unique weather, soil and geographic demarcations that impart a unique quality to all of our rums. Proof that it really does matter where your rum comes from.
At the Appleton Estate, the production of our rums is a craft. Every step in the process is carefully managed, from the selection of the varieties of sugarcane that are grown on the Estate, to the natural culture of yeast used in fermentation, to our unique distillation and blending methods. Appleton Estate has the distinction of being the oldest sugar estate and distillery in Jamaica in continuous production, crafting this delicious rum with the warmth, passion and unique spirit of Jamaica for more than 265 years.
