I went on the Appleton tour in a group of 9, and we had an amazing time. I'm on a business trip packed with fun excursions, so we ran late to our Appleton tour, but they were incredibly patient with us and didn't rush us at all even though they were closing. When we first arrived, they fed us a... More

The tour itself was comprehensive and informative. Every aspect of rum making, from cutting the cane to aging the final product was covered and explained clearly. The cost --$25/per person -- would not have been excessive had the tasting session at the end included at least some of the distillery's higher-end products. Instead we were offered virtually limitless amounts of... More

We visited the estate as part of an organised tour around the island, so didn't have very long there. However, we got to tour the old anew parts of the rum distillery , and this was very interesting. And of course the free samples went down well

The Appleton Estate is definitely worth the drive and visit! Upon arrival, we were immediately directed toward the bar where we were served all you could drink rum punches with raw sugar cane to chew. After a few rounds of punches, we started on the tour. We were able to watch sugar cane juice extracted via donkey turned press like... More

Peter, our personable guide, made our rum tour quite enjoyable. Of course, the rum punch we were served upon arrival also helped immensely. If you are nervous or easily become car sick, the long roller coaster ride to the southern part of the island will make the rum punch even more welcome. This estate is nestled in the middle of...

Includes (for US $25) a tour of the Rum factory. The guided tour was well narrated, and interesting - 45 minutes. Ended with a sourvenier rum sample, and a tasting session of the different rums. Ask for kid's discount (!) on that steep admission fees - it helps.
