Wray & Nephew makes 'Tessanne rum'

Tessanne Chin

Wray and Nephew has created a special rum in celebration of Tessanne Chin's accomplishments.

The special rum was blended by Mrs Joy Spence, master blender of the Wray and Nephew line of fine rums.

Accompanied by her sister Tami Chynn and Headline Entertainment's Marlon Bourke, the trio was invited to an exclusive ceremony at J. Wray and Nephew Limited's corporate office in New Kingston recently, where Tessanne was presented with the one-of-a-kind rum created just for her.

Spence told The Weekend STAR that after watching Chin's performance in the international singing competition and ultimately following her win, she decided to create rum that would be unique to a woman she describes as a "true Jamaican gem".

love and effort

Clearly overwhelmed by J. Wray and Nephew's decision and admitting to being a lover of Appleton Rum, Chin described the moment as an honour. "To go through the entire process was amazing; I didn't know so much love and effort that go into creating one bottle of rum. It was very educational and fun."

The season-five winner of the international singing competition, The Voice, has a number of shows in the upcoming months including the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival and 'The Voice' tour in June.

"The tour runs from June 24 to August 2 and it's all throughout the US. I know it's going to be challenging because it's like seven weeks but I'm looking forward to it". The tour will involve various 'Voice' alumni as well as the top contestants from season six.

Having just returned from Florida, the Tumbling Down singer says work on her album is almost 80 per cent done. "We are working on the album. I just came back from Florida where I was working with Supa Dups and Rock City, so I'm very excited."
