We did the Appleton Rum tour when we were are CN in May 2009. We hired a private driver for the day and did the tour plus stopped for some lunch at a local vendor. The trip from CN was about 2 hours each way and when combined with the actual tour it consumed the better part of the full day. The ride is spectacular and for me this was the best part of the whole day, the tour itself is very nice and you get to learn the history of the distillery and the process of making Appleton Rum, along with the ability to taste some of the different products made by Appleton. The Rum is not bottled at the distillery but is actually shipped to Kingston in stainless steel tankers to be blended and bottled there so you do not get to see the whole process on this tour.
