Located in Saint Catherine Parish, Worthy Park sits almost at the dead center of Jamaica. The estate is nestled in a valley 1200 ft above sea level surrounded by the cockpit mountains. Because of its elevation, Worthy Parker is cooler and more humid than the Jamaican Plains.
Every element of rum production, from cane harvest, to sugar production, to bottling, takes place on the Worthy Park Estate. Thousands of acres of the Estate’s own sugar cane are the source of the rum's molasses. As the producer of its own sugar, the molasses used for rum distillation is completely traceable to the estate itself, a claim no other rum producer in Jamaica can make.
The family-run Worthy Park Estate was established in 1670, and started producing rum as early as 1741, making it the oldest known rum distiller in Jamaica. It was purchased in 1918 by the Clarke family, now in their 4th generation of ownership, with Gordon Clarke at the helm.
Although a highly successful distillery, the glut of Jamaican rum after World War 2 led Worthy Park to cease rum production in the 1960s, though its sugar operation continued.
The distillery was completely rebuilt in 2004 and has since regained its place as one of the great distilleries of the world.
Highly regarded within the rum category, Worthy Park is one of the few distilleries leading the way in creating rums free of added sugar and flavorings. This centuries-old estate is known for their exceptional caliber spirits and as a shining example of traditional Jamaican Pot Still rum.
