Where Quality and Efficiency is the Tradition
Jamaican rum continues to be recognized throughout the world as distinctively flavourful and a top quality rum. This does not happen by accident! Deep in the heart of Lluidas Vale sits The Worthy Park Estate. Protected by the surrounding mountain ranges and encompassed by lush and fertile terrain. In the acres and acres of sugar cane fields is where it all begins. The cane fields were designed with careful consideration to not only the varieties of sugar cane growing in the fields, but to the planting and drainage, soil type and the method of harvesting the field. Following the tradition of sugar cane cultivation that has continued unabated at Worthy Park since 1720, the first ever record of rum production was in 1741, years before any other existing distillery in Jamaica.
The molasses used in the rum production is extracted in our on-property sugar factory; a sugar factory that has maintained its rank as the most efficient in Jamaica every year since 1968. With the completion of a state-of-the-art distillery in 2005, Worthy Park was back in the rum business. Being the newest distillery, it was built with efficiency in mind and designed to maintain the highest level of quality.
From the water used in blending, to the propriety native yeast cultivated from our own sugar cane crop, each step in the distillation process is measured and evaluated to ensure consistency and quality. Worthy Park distilles its rums in the traditional Jamaican Pot- Still method to give you a heavy bodied rum full of esters and congeners. The 100% copper Pot-Still was made by Forsyths, the industry leader in Pot-Still manufacturing from Scotland.
Smooth and mellow aroma of vanilla with hints of cinnamon, tropical fruit, banana and orange.
On the palate, taste sweet molasses, a hint of peach and chocolate, followed by creamy caramel and toffee with oak notes.
