Appleton Estate is set to launch its Reserve Jamaica rum in the US.

The 40% abv rum will join Appleton Estate V/X, Appleton Estate Extra and Appleton Estate 21-year-old in the Jamaican company's US stable.

"Appleton Estate Reserve is a great addition to the Appleton Estate range of rums available in the US," said Joe Murray, national brand manager.

"It has received international acclaim and been celebrated throughout the world, so now it's time for American consumers to taste this wonderfully handcrafted rum."

Appleton Estate Reserve will be available in the country at a suggested retail price of US$26.99 per 750ml bottle.

Wine and spirits group Brown-Forman handles the Appleton range in the US.
