Appleton Estate 30 Year Old 2009 75cl / US Import

The following lot is for a truly stunning 30 year release from the world famous Appleton Estate in the Nassau Valley, Jamaica.

The Appleton Estate is the oldest sugar plantation and distillery in Jamaica. Its sugar fields cover 11,000 acres of the Nassau Valley, located in the Saint Elizabeth parish, and it has been in operation since 1749. The distillery was bought by J. Wray & Nephew in 1916, which as of 2012 became a subsidiary of global drinks giant, Gruppo Campari. It operates five double-retort pot stills alongside a column still, and generally produces single blended rums by vatting the two distillates. In 1997, Appleton Estate became the first distillery in the entire spirits industry to employ a female master blender, Joy Spence.

The blend is made up of several types of rum that were hand selected by Master Blender Joy Spence. Each of the rum selected was individually aged for 8 years and then blended and placed again in oak barrels where they rested for another 22 years. Only 1440 bottles of this incredibly rum were produced. This is the 2009 and first release.
