Gold Lion Very Old Jamaica Rum circa 1960s

This is an incredible old bottling of Jamaica Rum from the 1960s. The Appleton Estate claims to be Jamaica's oldest rum producer, with a history dating back to 1749. In the century following its establishment, rum production on the island thrived, and by 1893, almost 90% of the sugar cane cultivation in Jamaica belonged to estates that operated their own distilleries, numbering somewhere in the region of 148. By 1948 there were only 25 of these remaining, a number which has slipped further still in the years since.

It is not clear which distilleries contributed to this rum, it may have been one or a number of them. It was bottled by Leon Herriot & Cie.
