Appleton Estate has expanded its range of rums with the launch of luxury blend Appleton Estate Master Blenders' Legacy.

The Jamaican distiller will roll out the rum during the third quarter of this year in Canada and domestically, and has opted for a regal purple signature colour and gift canister presentation.

Appleton's international division general manager David McConnell said: "Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum is acknowledged all over the world for exceptional quality and we have created Appleton Estate Master Blenders' Legacy to celebrate and pay tribute to the creativity and skill of our blenders."

Appleton's existing range comprises its flagship brand, Appleton Estate V/X Jamaica Rum, Reserve Jamaica Rum and two aged varieties, a 12-year-old and a 21-year-old.
