Appleton Estate looks to the 1940s with copper cup

AppletonEstate copper cupAppleton Estate Rum has gone back to its roots to offer UK bars a Jamaican Buck Copper Cup inspired by designs from the 1940s.

It is for serving a Jamaican Buck which is like a Moscow Mule but with the vodka substituted by rum. Nearly all early recipes for the cocktail call for Appleton Extra Estate rum which suggests that it was created by the Appleton Estate.

The branded copper cup is a variant of the old Moscow Mule cup first created in 1941 by John G Martin and John “Jack” Morgan of the Cock ‘n’ Bull Tavern on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. It was first used for a Jamaican Buck at the Chatham Hotel in Manhattan.

The Appleton Estate copper cups are available to UK on-trade Appleton Estate accounts by contacting local J Wray & Nephew representatives.
