Single Estate Reserve, Worthy Park
Founded in 1670 and continuously owned and operated by the Clarke Family since 1918, Worthy Park is one of the last remaining Jamaican owned & operated sugar and Jamaican Rum pure single rum producers left on the island. Currently, Gordan Clarke (4th generation) sits at the helm, as Director, working and living on the property. Located in St Catharine Parish, close to the geographical center of the island, northwest of Kingston, at an elevation of 1200ft, Worthy Park’s 12,000 acres estate grows all of its own sugar and process all of the subsequent molasses that goes into each bottle of pot-distilled, rum. They even have enough sugar and molasses to share with distilleries around the island and beyond, who rely on that sweet, specific Jamaican nectar.

Worthy Park has all the elements necessary to make a truly Single Estate Rum. Thousands of acres of sugar cane grown on the estate are turned into cane sugar and molasses without ever leaving the property, and that molasses is then used to produce rum distilled on Worthy Park’s 100% copper pot still. Aged in tropical conditions for 6-10 years in once-used, ex-Bourbon barrels, this authentic Jamaican Rum showcases the unique complexity and distinctive taste of the Worthy Park rums.
Aromas of banana, baking spice, tea, and fennel give way to sweet toffee and black pepper on the palate, followed by anise, allspice, and overripe mango. The long finish brings a whisper of cocoa nib, oak, and leather.
