Appleton Estate Celebrates 20 Years with Joy Spence

Appleton Estate, the Jamaican rum label, is celebrating 20 years with its master distiller Joy Spence this year, and is doing so the only way it should—by releasing a limited edition rum, the Joy Anniversary Blend.

This 25 year aged rum was created by Spence herself. Spence is an icon in the liquor world—she joined Appleton in 1981 as Chief Chemist and was appointed as Master Blender in 1997, making her the first woman in the world to hold the position.

She made the Anniversary Blend with the intention of making it “the cornerstone of [her] legacy”. She said, “...I simply set out to create the rum that I’d like to sip while watching the colours of my garden change in the warm glow of the Jamaican sunset. It includes two rum marques which are of particular sentimental significance to me: The first of these marques was laid down to age in 1981, which is the year I joined the Appleton Estate team, and the second is my favourite marque of pot still rum,” according to the Drink Report.

Joy Anniversary Blend will see distribution in March of 2017. The bottle is set at $250.
