Appleton Rum Factory Tour

A guided tour of the Appleton Rum distillery ends with a tasting of rums produced by this award-winning local company.

ppleton Rum Factory is a 45-minute detour from YS falls and if you’re interested in how rum is made, by all means take the distillery tour. The yeasty smell of molasses hangs over the cane fields, luring you toward the largest and oldest distillery in Jamaica. The factory has been blending the famous Appleton brand of rums since 1749, and it’s owned by J. Wray & Nephew, Jamaica’s largest rum producer.


“I like making smoothies from the local fruit and hearing how much our guests love them. See me at Dougies and I’ll make one for you.”

Sasha Thomas, who’s worked at Jakes for two years
