Are you serious about your rum? Or just know you love the stuff? Either way, there's a rummy adventure happening in Melbourne throughout August and you can get involved. Fine purveyors and makers of rum for over 265 years, Appleton Estate will bring back The Appleton Trail, a month-long celebration of Jamaica's long-loved spirit.

Throughout August Melburnians can pull up a pew at not one, but two rum-lovin' bars and taste the gems of the Appleton range and get into the summery Jamaican spirit. The Trail is headed both to Brunswick's Penny Black and Big Mouth in St Kilda — so no matter what side of the river you live on, you can still enjoy the festivities.

Both venues will be serving up special Appleton cocktails and matched Jamaican snacks every night in August with some added surprises rolling out throughout the month. The Penny Black will have live music on Friday, August 5 and Sunday, August 12 as well as some super tasty jerk chicken from their pop-up bar — which is a total no brainer. Or get down to Big Mouth on Saturday, August 20 and 27 for complimentary cocktail tastings.

Yep, it's time to switch to rum for winter — it's one of the best ways to keep warm, after all.
