Hit the (rum) trail
If there's one thing Melbourne barflys know well it's how to find a killer cocktail. And lovers of Appleton Estate Jamaican Rum have long-since had a love affair with not just the handcrafted bottle, but the divinely delicious cocktails that come from them.
This month Appleton lovers are set for a treat as The Appleton Trail pop up sees Appleton Estate hosting three exclusive events in Melbourne kicking off on April 7 and continuing on each weekend for the remainder of the month.

The Appleton Trail pop up events will showcase the rum and allow guests the chance to sample special rums while learning about how they are made. The lush pop up surroundings are certain to set the scene of enjoying the Jamaican rum. You can expect Jamaican music, signature cocktails and bespoke Jamaican- inspired food menus at each venue that's a part of the Appleton Trail.
