One of my favorite all-day tours I was able to go on while I was in Jamaica was the Appleton Estate Rum Tour. Getting to Appleton Estate is a journey within itself! From Montego Bay it took 2.5 hours driving through the winding mountains one-way. If you are a person that gets easily car sick this may not be the right tour for you! Once you are at Appleton you are grouped together with a tour guide for about a 45 minute tour. Guests get to see how Appleton Rum started off being made, the advancements in technology that have made the rum-making process easier, one of the barrel storage facilities, and much more.
Plus, at the very end you get to taste up to 7 different kinds of Appleton Rum that is made on-site. Be sure to purchase your own Appleton Rum to take home with you as well as T-shirts and other memorabilia. One of my favorites is the Sangster Rum Cream. I was able to buy a smaller bottle for $7 and also a couple $4 bottles of Appleton Special to take home for friends. Sure, the trip there and back makes it an all-day tour, but getting to see authentic Jamaica with its orange groves, sugarcane, and small towns makes the experience unforgettable.
