Barbados Private Estate 1780

In 1780, servants of Edward Lascelles, the first Earl of Harewood, distilled and barreled rum, which was later shipped to the Earl's home in England, where it was bottled and stored in the cellar. The rum remained undiscovered for 231 years until David Lascelles, the 8th Earl of Harewood and Queen Elizabeth II's first cousin, discovered it.

Because of the prolonged aging, the rum was able to fetch the following price at auction – $10, 667. When the rum was discovered in the cellar of the family mansion, it was covered in mold and spider web. Before the bottles were auctioned, servants spent several hours cleaning them. The bottles were made of hand-blown glass, and the rum was auctioned at Christie's, becoming one of the most expensive rums ever auctioned at that price.

According to reports, David Lascelles returned the proceeds from the sale of 12 bottles to the Caribbean people through the Geraldine Connor Foundation as reparations.

50-year-old Appleton Estate

The Appleton Estate, which has been around for 50 years, was released in 2012 to commemorate Jamaica's 50th anniversary of independence. The rum is a limited edition and has been aged in oak barrels for 50 years, giving it a decadent flavor. The oak barrels were hand-picked, and today, the 50-year-old Appleton Estate is thought to be the world's oldest rum to be for sale.


To commemorate Jamaica's 50th anniversary of independence, 800 bottles were distributed. What you should know is that the bottling of Jamaica's 50-year-old Appleton Estate was planned long before the country gained independence from the British in August 1962.


The rum is of historic caliber due to the special blending techniques used by master blenders. It has a diverse flavor profile that befits its 50-year history of blending. The good news is that it does not contain an excessive amount of tannin. Glencairn Crystal in the United Kingdom produced the 50-year-old Appleton Estate in a crystal decanter. It has the same curvaceous shape as the Appleton's vessels. The cork and brass stopper are gold-plated.

Original Royal Naval Rum Tot

The Royal Navy has been storing the Original Royal Naval Rum Tot in stone flagons for the last 40 years as aged rum. It was served to British Royal Navy sailors as part of the last rum ration in July 1970, when the 300-year-old tradition of a daily rum ration came to an end. The day began at 6 a.m., according to the forenoon watch, and ended at 11 a.m. The last rum was served aboard British Royal Navy ships during this period. Prior to the sale of the last 1000 bottles, the Original Royal Naval Rum Tot was only served at state functions and Royal Weddings (British).


The legendary rum has a three-hundred-year-long romantic history. A standard Original Royal Naval Rum Tot contains an eighth of a pint of rum. This has an ABV of more than 50%, 70cl/54.3 percent, and is traditionally regarded as – overproof. The nose of the rum is full of blackberries, oak, and dark chocolate, but it is far superior to the Pusser rum. It has an exceptional flavor with notes of coffee, tobacco, oak, dark chocolate, coffee, and blackberries.

Bacardi Superior Rum (Spain) Bot.1940s

Facundo Bacardi, born in Sitges, Catalonia in 1814, immigrated to Cuba in 1830. When he arrived, rum was made cheaply, so it wasn't a refined drink. To change this, Facundo Bacardi began experimenting with various blending and production techniques for high-quality rum.


He finally found the right technique after several attempts. Simply put, he filtered the rum through charcoal to remove impurities. Later, he aged the rum for several years in oak barrels. The drink was smoothed out as a result of this.


In 1862, he and his brother, Joe, opened a shop and distillery after successfully blending the first high-quality rum. The distillery was then used by the master blenders to produce the Bacardi Superior Rum (Spain) Bot.1940s and other products.


The rum is white and produced in Spain, with an alcohol content of 70cl/46 percent. Because the bottle is quite old, it should be opened with caution.

Rhum Clement 1952

Rhum Clement 1952 is ranked No.10 on our Most Expensive Rum (Top 10) list, with a current retail price of $1,200. It is dark amber in color and was bottled in 1991. The bottle's label features an image of Homere Clement and was made in Martinique on the site of an old creole sugarcane plantation. He was a physician and the mayor of Le Francois. As a racial socialist, he recognized the high demand for high-quality alcohol during World War I.


He began by buying an old Creole sugarcane plantation – Domaine de l'Acajou – and immediately constructing a distillery. As an entrepreneur, he was able to produce some of the world's best rum. He left the distillery to his son, Charles, after his death. The apple, as they say, does not fall far from the tree, and in this case, it falls in a good way.

Charles carried on his father's tradition of producing high-quality alcohol. The Rhum Clement 1952 is the first rum made at the original distillery before it was relocated.
