Geographical Indications have become a bit of a hot topic lately. This is primarily because of the ongoing process in Barbados to establish one and there being rumours that one party would like the existing Jamaica GI to be changed. I've written about these two situations quite a bit already. Click here for an insight into the Barbados GI, here for the Mount Gay perspective and here for the Jamaica GI.
The superstar in this post is Joy Spence, master blender of Appleton Estate. She's an incredibly inspirational figure. I love going to her presentations and this is the first clip of one of those. More will follow soon. Enjoy watching her explain what a GI is and why it is important.
