Appleton Estate Rum is said to be Jamaica’s finest. That’s an arguable statement, but don’t they say things get better with age?
Appleton Estate has been handcrafting rums since 1749. Located in the heart of the country’s sugar cane belt, it is the oldest sugar estate and distillery in Jamaica. Which translates into, they know what they’re doing.
A couple weeks ago I picked up a bottle of the Appleton Estate Reserve. Nothing fancy, just wanted a bottle for the collection. I’ve been sipping and enjoying it thoroughly, but now it’s time to whip up an oh-so-good Boat Drink cocktail with it. Time for the Appleton Spiced Ice Tea.
Appleton Spiced Ice Tea recipe
- 2 oz Appleton Estate® Jamaica rum
