Round Hill Celebrates National Rum Day

Anyone who has been to Round Hill, or Jamaica for that matter, knows the importance of rum – not only to the tourism industry, but also to the economy of Jamaica. 

On any given day you’ll find Stewart, Larry or Peter pouring away favored drinks including authentic Jamaican Appleton Rum.  Following are some of our most popular rum drinks that are served at The Beach Bar, The Pool Bar and in The Cocktail Bar.  Or even on the beach! 


The Round Hill Special (consume two of these and you’ll know why they’re so special!)
Tall Jamaican – Appleton special rum, triple sec, lime and pineapple juices
Jamaican Delight – Appleton special rum, apricot brandy, lime and pineapple juices
Yellow Bird – Appleton special, Galliano, crème banana, line and orange juices

In addition, rum is thoroughly enjoyed alone in a snifter as an aperitif – before, during, or after dinner at Round Hill.  Examples include Appleton Special, Appleton VX, Appleton Reserve, Appleton Extra 12 Year, Appleton Master Blender’s “Legacy”, Appleton 21 Years, and the Appleton 30 Years which is the crème-de-la-crème of Jamaican rum.  Smooth, bountiful, and full of flavor.  It’s what makes rum drinks in Jamaica so special. 

Do You Know the Connection Between Jamaican Rum and the Queen of England?

The most famous Jamaican rum “Appleton Estate” as well as the most famous Barbados rum “Mount Gay” were both founded ( some shareholding still exists today) by the Lascelles family. The Lascelles carry the important title of the Earl of Harewood (pronounced “Harwood”) and live in one of the most amazing 18th century country houses in Yorkshire (between Leeds and Harrowgate) called “Harewood House” (architecture by Adams, furnished by Chippendale and Hepplewhite and gardens by Capability Brown). The present Earl is a first cousin to HM Queen Elizabeth II (his mother was the sister of King George VI, Mary, the Princess Royal and later Countess Harewood).
