Established in 1655 as a sugar refinery, Appleton Estate started to produce rum in 1749. It is the oldest working rum distillery in Jamaica. Appleton Estate Special, the estates flagship product, was created during the Second World War to compensate for the shortage of whisky on the island. Over the decades the distillery has survived various crises by using an independent sugar cane supplier. In 1997 Appleton Estate appointed Joy Spence as their Master Blender, the first woman to occupy such a position in the rum industry. Highly appreciated by experts, Appleton Estate is regularly awarded prizes for the consistent quality of its products.
APPLETON 21 YO 1999 HEARTS COLLECTION
Quantity strictly limited to 1 bottle by client. If you already purchased one through the Whisky.SG or RQ shop your order will be automatically cancelled. Thank you for giving the chance to other people!
Hearts Collection is comprised of three vintages that embody the excellence of Appleton Estate: 1994, 1995 and 1999, co-bottled by the world’s leading rum expert, Luca Gargano.
Each vintage was distilled 26, 25 and 21 years ago, respectively.
The rums that make up the Hearts Collection are the first single marque rums and the first 100% pot-still rums that Appleton Estate has ever released.
The renowned Appleton Estate rums are meticulous blends of spirits made in a pot still, with column-still rums added as an equalizing agent. Pot-still spirits have a richer quality and more distinctive texture than column-still spirits, which are stripped of their character-driving congeners in their long pass through the column plates.
