APPLETON ESTATE Signature Blend
APPLETON ESTATE Signature Blend. In 1655, a British expedition led by Sir William Penn and General Robert Venables captured the island of Jamaica from the Spanish. Following the conquest, Frances Dickinson — a soldier in Venables’ army — was granted land in exchange for his honorable services. This land would eventually become the foundation of the Appleton Estate.
Since 1749, the Appleton Estate has been crafting some of the world’s finest rum from sugarcane grown on it’s 11,000 acre estate. Once the sugarcane is harvested, it is fermented with exceptionally soft water that originates on the Estate and is naturally filtered through limestone hills. In addition, the fermentation process uses a proprietary strain of yeast that contributes a unique aroma and flavor profile to the rum. Following fermentation, the rum is distilled through copper pot and column stills.
Appleton Estate Signature Blend is a blend of 15 different rums, aged anywhere from 5 and 10 years in used oak casks. This blend is rested in new barrels for a few months before bottling.
