The Queen of Rum

Joy Spence, the Master Blender for Appleton Estate

In honor of National Rum Month, we were honored to host Dr. Joy Spence, Master Blender of Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum, for a discussion about rum, Jamaica, and the art of blending.

Joy joined Appleton Estate as Chief Chemist in 1981, gaining the title of Master Blender in 1997—She is the first woman to hold the position of Master Blender in the spirits industry.
