Hedonism Meets... Joy Spence

Posted by Hedonism Wines

Joy Spence is an icon of the Rum industry and needs little introduction. Having spent forty years working at one of the Caribbean's most famous distilleries and rising to the role of Master Blend, Joy is uniquely placed to give an insight into the past, present and future of one of the world's favourite spirits. We sat down with Joy to discuss her career, how Rum is made at Appleton Estate and how Rum is fast becoming a premium spirit to rival single malt Scotch or Cognac.
