If you’re tired of your usual tipple, or fancy getting into something exceptional ahead of the summer months, Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum could be the way forward.

A firm favourite with bartenders and listed in the country’s best restaurants and bars (such as The Experimental Cocktail Club, Nightjar and Hawksmoor), Appleton Estate produces a range of blends from the V/X to 30 Years Old all aged in oak casks on the estate. Each rum in the range (Appleton Estate V/X, 8 Year Old, 12 Year Old, 21 Year Old and 30 Year Old) has its own distinctive style while carrying the hallmark of Appleton Estate rums: the distinctive note of orange peel. What’s more, the entire production process – from grass to glass – is carried out on the Appleton Estate in Jamaica.

If you’re in need of inspiration as to how to enjoy it, we have two suggestions to get you started:
