Joy Spence's 20th anniversary as master blender is celebrated in this extraordinary limited edition bottling of pot still and column still rums. Aged between 25 and 35 years, and simply called “Joy”, it comes beautifully presented in a decanter style bottle and presentation case. Says Spence: “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. The final blend is a wonderful rum that I hope will be become a cornerstone of my legacy”. Joy Spence, joined Appleton Estate in 1981 as chief chemist, having graduated from the University of the West Indies with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and the University of Loughborough with a Master of Science in Analytical Chemistry.
