About Appleton Estate 8 Year Old Reserve RumCreated by Master Blender Joy Spence in celebration of the distillery's 250th anniversary, Appleton Estate 8 Year Old Reserve Rum is a blend of pot and column still rums, all aged at least 8 years in the tropical climate of Jamaica. Boasting a honeyed bronze color with a subtle green ring, the nose opens up with spicy fruit aromas and hints of honey while the flavorful palate seduces you with vanilla, holiday spice, and orange peel flavors. Perfect for high-quality rum cocktail like Mai Tai but you can simply enjoy this beauty on the rocks.
In 1655, a British expedition led by Sir William Penn and General Robert Venables captured the island of Jamaica from the Spanish. Following the conquest, Frances Dickinson — a soldier in Venables' army — was granted land in exchange for his honorable services. This land would eventually become the foundation of the Appleton Estate.
Since 1749, the Appleton Estate has been crafting some of the world's finest rum from sugarcane grown on it's 11,000 acre estate. Once the sugarcane is harvested, it is fermented with exceptionally soft water that originates on the Estate and is naturally filtered through limestone hills. In addition, the fermentation process uses a proprietary strain of yeast that contributes a unique aroma and flavor profile to the rum. Following fermentation, the rum is distilled through copper pot and column stills.
