Appleton Rum Plantation - a place to visit on your tour

One of the best-known plantations in Jamaica is the Appleton Estate. This plantation is located on the southern border of the cockpit country in Nassau Valley.

This estate is the oldest sugar plantation and distillery in Jamaica. It produces sugar and rum and has so since 1749. To get a firsthand impression about the sugar cultivation and rum distillery, you can book a bus tour to the estate.

On this tour you will not only see the manufacturing process, you also have the opportunity to taste the different sorts of rum and liquors. You can even try the best rum of the distillery—the fifty-year-old barrel-aged Appleton Estate rum. In case you prefer a sweet liqueur the rum with pineapple taste may be a nice alternative. However, you can try as much as you want, and if you are lucky, you will get a lunch too.

This is only a small insight into the cultural customs in Jamaica. Much more to this topic you will find in my book
