Free Food Fridays: Appleton Estate Reserve Rum – ENDED

So it’s not exactly food, but I can’t see what Autumn meal I couldn’t serve this gorgeous Appleton Estate Reserve rum alongside- it conjures so many wonderful vacation memories! Keep reading to find out how you can win a bottle (if you’re over the age of 21!) and more about the product.

The Appleton Estate has been handcrafting quality rums in Jamaica’s Nassau Valley since 1749. I can’t help up be brought back there when I think of my lovely vacation there, sipping rum poolside. I am also reminded of the story of Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester’s tales of the hot and steamy place where he met beautiful women and delighted in the pleasure of quality food and drink. This rum conjures up feelings in anyone who drinks it, and even if you don’t have an experience with Jamaica, you can create one when you savor this quality rum.

Appleton Estate Reserve is unique because of its rare blend of aged rum- 20, to be exact. Create new autumn memories with this rum’s rich flavor and savor in its richness.

The Prize: 2 lucky winners will win a bottle of Appleton Estate Reserve.

Timeline: This giveaway will run until October 13th, 2011 at 11:59pm CDT.  A winner will be chosen at random and contacted via email on Friday, October 14th. You MUST be 21 to enter and someone over the age of 21 will be required to sign for the prize.

    My mouth is watering after reading all these coments! I would enjoy this premium rum relaxing with my husband after the kids are in bed-with a plate of fresh pineapple & a good smoked cheese & crackers. Then we would plan our “escape” to Jamaica or another tropical island for the honeymoon we never had. But I would also like to try it in a good recipe for rum or pina colata cake. Can we start a new recipe category & share recipes?
