The New York-based crew of Come Chat Wid Mi were in Jamaica last week where they interviewed David Morrison, the Senior Blender of Appleton Estate, who spoke about the blending of their various estate rums and Appleton Estate’s objective to be the number one rum brand in the global marketplace. David’s informative interview was filmed at the very stylish Appleton Estate Bar and Lounge in New Kingston, then Randeen, Appleton Estate’s Mixologist, gave instructions on how to mix two of Appleton Estate’s favourite cocktails, ‘Stormy Valley’ & ‘The Epic’.
