Joy Spence

Loughborough alumna

I am a graduate of Loughborough University with an MSc in Analytical Chemistry.

I am the Master Blender for Appleton Estate Jamaica Rums. In this capacity, I develop new blends and tour the world as an ambassador for our rums. I also do motivational talks to students in STEM encouraging them to think outside the box for a profession and most importantly to follow their passion. I enjoy visiting exciting places in the world, gardening, interior decorating and listening to music.

Women are sometimes the unsung heroes. International Women’s Day provides a platform to recognise the achievements of women in all spheres of life.
