The JTB partnered with the rum brand and offered neat pours of Appleton Estate Signature Blend, a full-bodied, well-balanced blend of 15 select aged rums, Appleton Estate Reserve Blend, a blend of 20 select aged rums, and Appleton Estate Rare Blend, a hand-selected blend of rums that have all been aged for a minimum of 12 years. Attendees at the Brooklyn Navy Yard festival venue, learned that all Appleton Estate® Jamaica Rum is produced on a single estate in a small circumscribed geographic area, making it one of the few rums in the world to claim a terroir.

Toast of Brooklyn Wine & Food Festival is a culinary experience that brings together a wide variety of chefs representing destinations around the world with wines and spirits. Organizers continued their beneficiary partnership with the Caribbean Tourism Organization and made a donation to support hurricane relief efforts for The Bahamas.
