Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum is proud to announce the release of a world first in Rum, the very rare Limited Edition
Appleton Estate 50 Year Old Jamaica Rum - Jamaica Independence Reserve
In 1962 just before Jamaica received its independence, several barrels of rums from the Appleton Estate were set aside to age with the edict that these rums were to be used to create a very special blend of 50 Year Old Rum that would celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Jamaica’s Independence.
These rums were placed in a special area in one of our ageing warehouses and for fifty years they were carefully monitored, first by Master Blender Owen Tulloch and then by current Master Blender, Joy Spence.
As the rums rested in the oak barrels a transformation took place as rich, complex flavours and aromas were developed naturally from the interaction of the rum with the oak and the rums also became very smooth and mellow and developed a dark mahogany colour.
