Appleton Estate 1962 Jamaica Independence Reserve 50 Year Old 75cl / with Press Kit and Glasses x 2
In 1962 just before Jamaica received its independence, several barrels of rum from the Appleton Estate were set aside to age with the edict that these rums were to be used to create a very special blend of 50 Year Old Rum that would celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Jamaica's Independence.
These barrels were placed in a special area in one of Appleton's ageing warehouses and for fifty years they were carefully monitored, first by Master Blender Owen Tulloch and then by his protege and current Master Blender Joy Spence.
Bottled in 2012 to mark the 50th anniversary of Jamaica's independence, this remains one of the oldest rums ever bottled.
One of only 800 bottles.
With Press Kit including 10cl sample, as well as two branded glasses.
Please be advised that the absence of any specific condition reports does not imply that this bottle is in perfect condition. We recommend close inspection of all images prior to placing any bids, and any further information required can be provided upon request.
Due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
