Appleton Estate 250th Anniversary Decanter / Signed by Joy Spence
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.
A limited edition rum released in 1999 to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the Appleton Estate which was established in 1749.
A blend of pot and column still produced rums of various ages.
One of 6000 bottles.
