A luxurious Rum with tropical flavors of Jamaica.

Appleton-branded liquid gold has been in constant production here since 1749. Appleton Estate sits in the Nassau Valley of Jamaica — an amazing rainforest with steeply domed hills and narrow valleys filled with some of the finest "terra rosa" soils on the planet. It’s the Napa Valley of Rum… the Champagne region of sugar cane. Appleton put this premium location to good use. They have a complete range of Rum Spirits to choose from light Rum for mixing drinks to intensely flavorful aged Spirits for sipping and savoring.

Appleton Estate 15 Year Old Black River Casks Rum is a nod to the Black River that's the source of the pure limestone water for Appleton Estate Rums. It’s a blend of hand-picked pot and column still Rums that have been aged for at least 15 years. The tropical aging in Jamaica makes for a super rich and full-bodied Rum with flavors of almond, hazelnut, citrus, vanilla, and roasted coffee. Sip neat or on the rocks to take it all in.

Mount Gay Rum is the oldest existing Rum company in the World dating back to 1705. This is also the year Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Britain’s Parliament.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
Rum (usually) comes from molasses, the sweet and syrupy residue of refining sugarcane into sugar. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, contributing to the final flavor.
A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. The most popular suggestions are Rum (the Romani word for 'potent'), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), and Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
If the center of our galaxy had a signature scent, it would be Rum. Yup, astronomers studying a giant cloud in the Milky Way found a substance called ethyl formate, a chemical that smells suspiciously like Rum.
