Wray Rum & Nephew White Overproof is produced and bottled in Jamaica by Wray & Nephew. The Appleton Estate (J.Wray & Nephew Ltd.) is located in the Nassau Valley, one of Jamaica’s most beautiful valleys. Its distinguishing feature is its high strength, which is 63% alcohol, which distinguishes it from most modern rums and makes it one of the most popular in the world. The first mention of the production of rum in the estate dates back to 1749, but the estate itself appears in documents from 1655. In 1825, entrepreneur John Ray opened a small establishment called Shakespeare’s Tavern. The city steadily grew and developed, eventually becoming the capital of Jamaica in 1877. Over the years, «Tavern» has become a great success. In 1860, Ray brought his nephew Charles James Ward into the business, turning the company into the J. Wray and Nephew Ltd. corporation. Wray & Nephew rums repeatedly won prizes in the following decades at European international exhibitions.
