Those are just a few of the questions Appleton Estate master blender Joy Spence answers in the second chapter of “Rum Rising,” a new docuseries following eight bartenders’ unforgettable journey to Jamaica. Some notable bartenders and experts also take a trip to an authentic Jamaican market—and make some jaw-dropping blended rum cocktails.
