The internationally respected Monde Selection International Institute for Quality Selections has awarded three Grand Gold medals to Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum.
The flagship Appleton Estate V/X Jamaica Rum, the super-premium Appleton Estate Reserve Jamaica Rum and the ultra-premium Appleton Estate Extra 12-year-old Jamaica Rum, all collected the ultimate accolade title of Grand Gold medals in the 2010 contest. In addition, Appleton Estate V/X Jamaica Rum was also awarded a special International High Quality Trophy for 2010, for consistently turning in gold and grand gold medal performances at the awards.
"We are very proud that Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum continues to be recognised and honoured by this important international body," said David McConnell, managing director of global marketing for Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum.
"It is factors such as our history and heritage, our unique manufacturing process, the terroir of the Appleton Estate in St Elizabeth and, most important, the commitment of our team to producing rums of the highest quality that make Appleton Estate Jamaica Rums so exceptional."
