All Appleton Estate rums are produced on a single estate within a defined geographic area and, as a result, can claim weather, soil and geographic demarcations, or “Terroir.” There are five main products in the Appleton Estate line: Appleton Estate VX, Appleton Estate Reserve, Appleton Estate Extra 12 Year Old, Appleton Estate Master Blenders' Legacy, and Appleton Estate 21 Year Old.
Appleton Estate also produces a limited edition rum called Appleton Estate 30 Year Old with only 1,440 bottles produced and a price estimate of $250 to $300 a bottle.
There are two specific mixing rums available from Appleton Estate, including: Appleton Special and Appleton White.
The first known documentation of rum production at the Appleton Estate dates back to 1749, however the origins of the Estate date back as far as 1655 when the British captured Jamaica from the Spaniards.
Frances Dickinson, whose grandsons are the earliest known owners of the Estate, took part in that conquest, and it is believed that the Appleton Estate was part of the land grant that Dickinson received as a reward for his services.
In 1845 the Appleton Estate passed out of the hands of the Dickinson family when it was acquired by William Hill.
At the turn of the century the Estate again changed hands when it was purchased by one of Jamaica`s most successful merchants, A. McDowell Nathan.
Nathan died in the great earthquake of 1907 and his estate, including Appleton , was eventually acquired by J. Wray and Nephew Ltd., a company with a rich tradition of producing fine rums and spirits.
Nestled in Jamaica`s Nassau Valley in the centre of the island, the Appleton Estate covers over 11,000 acres of land. The magnificent rums that are produced on the Estate are of a unique style produced only in Jamaica and only at Appleton . These rums are a legacy of days past when our ancestors developed.1)
