Worthy Park Estate

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. 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. 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.

Tasting Notes: 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.

A visit to Worthy Park
1,200 feet above sea level, overlooking more than 10,000 acres of lush foliage, you will find Worthy Park – a very old Jamaican distillery. You see breathtaking valleys uniting the rolling mountain ranges that are standing guard over stalks of sugar cane swaying in the cool mountain breeze.

A visit to Worthy Park is a trip back in time to the days of unspoiled landscapes and natural beauty that had given rise to Jamaica being known as the “Land of wood and water” far from the white sand beaches and palm trees. The Worthy Park Estate has remained the same way since its inception in 1670. Worthy Park was gifted to Lt. Francis Price for his services to Cromwell during the English capture of the island from the Spanish back in 1655. It has expanded since then through the acquisition of neighboring properties.

Commercial production of cane and sugar began in 1720 and has continued unabated until this day. Since then it has only been under ownership by three families and has been in the hands of the Clarke family since 1918. In that time Worthy Park has not only engaged in cane farming and sugar production but the land has been used for beef cattle, citrus, poultry and other agricultural crops. However, there has been a consistent reduction in cultivation of other crops and livestock in favor of an increased cultivation of cane and sugar production.

Of the over 10,000 acres of land approximately 40% of the land is currently in sugar cultivation. There are as many as 20 cane varieties growing however, most acreage is of the top three performers. The sugar season in Jamaica lasts from January through the end of June. Since it is a 24-hour operation in season, the other months of the year are dedicated to a complete servicing of all the equipment in the sugar factory. While the traditional and preferred method of harvesting cane is by hand, for the past 20 years Worthy Park has also used combine cane harvesters to assist in the daily supply of cane to the sugar factory.

Worthy Park was out of the rum business. Thankfully, only temporarily! After being out of the distillation business for decades, the Clarke family decided in 2004 that there was room for another Jamaican rum, made with quality ingredients in a perfect contrast by distilling in the Traditional Jamaican Pot-Still method however with efficiency and state-of-the-art equipment helping us get there.

In 2005, the newest distillery was complete! By 2007, the flagship brand of Rum-Bar Rum was launched and has forever changed the Jamaican rum industry. Rum-Bar is Worthy Park’s own series of products with three rums: White Overproof, Gold and Rum Cream.
