After a few twists and turns along the narrow road of Jamaica, we finally reached our destination: Appleton Estate Rum Plantation. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the staff and was directed to the mini bar right away.
|Apple juice?! Nope, it's Rum baby! Paired with sugar cane chunks.|
Appleton Rum Bar Display
There are two old sugar cane crushers that are still shown to visitors and a demonstration with a donkey on how they use to operate the cane crushers.
Here's Pax, the donkey and his master showing us how cane juice was extracted in the 18th century. Daughter was very fascinated by the donkey extracting the sugar cane, she even gave him a pat on the back...lol!
After roaming around the plantation, we headed back to the main office where lunch was served. We got to enjoy some Jamaican cuisine! I really love their jerky chicken and rum cake.
Visitors favorite part of the tour is the rum sampling. You'll have the opportunity to sample 12 varieties of produced at the Estate. I got tipsy after trying 4 bottles. Man, 12 samples is crazy!
