History of Appleton Estate

The first known documentation of rum production on the Appleton Estate is dated 1749. However, it is believed that the origins of the Estate dates back to Sir Francis Dickenson in 1655. The Estate may have changed hands over the years, but since 1749 all Appleton Estate rum have been produced with a passion for rum and a love of the land from which it is produced.  The rum is perfected by the Master Blender, Joy Spence.  The first woman to be appointed Master Blender in the world.  All processes at the estate are environmentally friendly and certified by the International Standard Organization (taken from Appleton Estate).
