Say hello to your new favourite drink

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:
