Dan is our Distillery Assistant, and handles many of the day-to-day operations in the distillery, including overseeing the distilling and fermentation runs, running tours, doing deliveries, and helping out with the occasional tasting. Since he does not actually consume alcohol, he is the perfect person to have working in a distillery!

Dan hails from Zimbabwe, where he initially worked as an Electrical Maintenance Technician for ZESA, including a stint in Cabora Bassa, before spending time in marketing at an accounting business. He started his own Coal Merchant company, supplying coal to tobacco farmers for half a decade, before relocating to Cape Town. He joined the distillery in March 2017 and has grown in knowledge and skills to become a vital part of the team.

Dan is a guy who welcomes challenge, and he loves the research that goes into new spirits, processes and recipes. His quirky tours of the distillery and wry sense of humour often have guests in fits of giggles, and his passion for the job shines through strongly. As he says: I love the job and the challenge, and better is not good enough. The best is still to come!͟
