What to expect
Following convenient pickup at your Negril hotel, climb on board a comfortable tour vehicle and set off for a drive along the scenic southern coast of Jamaica. Your destination is the Nassau Valley in St Elizabeth parish, the location of the historic Appleton Estate.  Once you arrive at the distillery, dating from 1749, embark on a tour of the facility and grounds. Get a peek inside the aging house, where rum is stored in oak barrels for up to 30 years. Your guide will tell you about the distillery's prestigious history as one of the island's first rum producers and discover some of Appleton's secret ingredients. Sit down for a rum tasting, accompanied by a local treat: fresh-pressed cane juice. Take the opportunity to purchase some souvenir bottles to take home (some labels are only available domestically in Jamaica).  Return to your Negril hotel for drop-off.

Incredible experience at Appleton!
Mar 2021 • Couples
My husband and I went on the run tour and tasting at Appleton Estates, and it was absolutely amazing! Our tour guide, Peter, was knowledgeable, friendly, and made the tour so much fun. It is an interactive and in-depth tour, and it includes a tasting at the end. What could be better?? We have been on dozens of brewery and distillery tours, and this is the best one we have experienced. We would definitely recommend it!

Appleton Estate Day Trip
Feb 2020
February 29,2020 we went on a day trip from our resort in Negril to Appleton Estate we were so excited to see a sign and been told it is a non-smoking property and that was great not to suck in smoke . When we arrived we were sent to the bar for a complimentary rum and ginger beer drink which tasted great . We waited around 20-25 minutes for the tour to start they showed all the old ways things were done as they spoke of the history of the estate and showed how they make their rum, there was a group from Kingston that were loud and over did it with the noise as this was getting annoying as the host tried in a very nice way to quite down a couple of them as they felt they were running the tour and making themselves look like jerks, at last the host halfway into the tour got them acting like adults. We went into the plan seen the large pots distilling the rum to the barrel warehouse where hundreds of rum filled barrels were aging . This was a interesting tour where we learned the history and how they distill the rum to the finished product until we moved back inside for some tasting which was great to lean for us as will love Appleton rum a tour well worth it for us.

Amazing
Oct 2019
We decided to do this trip combined with the YS Falls and it was a great trip. You are greeted with the chance to have a free drink from the bar which was lovely. The guide was knowledgeable and great fun to show us around and tell us all about the process. The tasting afterwards of the different blends was a great eye opener in how it changes over the years of being stored. We chose to eat in the restaurant and were not disappointed even for a fussy eater like me and was very reasonably priced .

Native Jamaican's not welcome!
May 2018 • Couples
Poor experience. Drove 2 and a half hours, was not greeted with warmly by the ticket office customer service. We experienced being asked to pay an international rate when we are locals- and simply did not have ID (although using Jamaican bank card and clearly identifying as local - whereas the group of people ahead of us, a party of 4, were only asked to show the ID of the person who headed the group. A local taxi driver was permitted entry at a local rate with no ID. Although we paid the rate, when we challenged the difference in approach we were treated in a way that I can only say was not becoming of an establishment representing Jamaican's finest. The general manager was rude, and unsympathetic - only repeating that policy had to be followed - which of course it wasn't. We were simply asked to leave by him, and given a refund. Shame on you Appleton!
