The Appleton Estate Rum Tour offers unique insight into a part of Jamaica's History and rich complex culture. The estate is home to the legendary Appleton Distillary, rum makers since 1749. Located in the picturesque Nassau Valley in St. Elizabeth, on Jamaica's South Coast. During the rum tour you will experience first hand, the historic production process of Appleton Estates' Rums. You will be able to see and experience some of the earliest methods of extracting juice from sugarcane, learn about the unique distillation process in our 200 year old pot stills and visit one of our barrel houses where the rums age to perfection. After the rum tour, you will begin to understand why Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum is the finest in the world.

I would assume you could visit the Appleton Estate in October. I took the triple combo tour which included the Appleton Estate, YS waterfalls & Black River tour .... I visited Jamaica Christmas 2016.
