Appleton Estate 50 Year Old Jamaica Independence Reserve

Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum proudly revealed the world`s oldest rum, Appleton Estate 50 Year Old Jamaica Independence Reserve. The limited edition golden rum was released in August 2012 paying homage to half a century of independence from British colonial rule.

Each vessel of this sublime amber nectar is encased in a hand crafted crystal decanter, of which only 800 bottles were made making each bottle of this rare blend a mere £3,500, but more importantly making it the jewel in the crown of any drink connoisseur`s collection.


Appleton Estate 50 Year Old Jamaica Independence Reserve is a hand blended and exceptionally smooth, deep mahogany sipping rum that will excite the most sophisticated of palates. Its powerful notes of oak, vanilla, cinnamon and maple resonate with a distinctive hint of orange peel – the hallmark of all Appleton Estate Jamaican Rums.

Crafted from a blend of rums that have been aged in oak barrels for a minimum of 50 years, each barrel was set down over half a century ago with the vision of creating truly exquisite rum that would do justice to the celebratory landmark that is the 50-year anniversary of independence in Jamaica.

The handcrafted crystal decanter denotes etchings inspired by Jamaica`s national symbols and the bottle comes with a commemorative booklet that outlines Jamaica`s march to Independence and the rum`s remarkable 50 year journey.
