Sandy is Admin Manager at the distillery, and handles most of the sales, accounting and general administration, as well as co-ordinating tastings and events. She has survived being Steve’s better half since before the dawn of recorded time.

Her early career was in recruitment, where she managed several branches in Cape Town and Australia, before joining the training company Steve and his university colleagues had started in the 80’s. As the business grew, she was able to put her MBA to use in managing every aspect of the business over the years, including HR, Finance and Marketing, with a side-line in catering, events and graduation parties.

She is amazing at organising events, and is a talented and creative caterer. Her whimsical and slightly wicked sense of humour keeps Steve in his place. She is loving mother to four children: two human daughters and two canine, and loves the Kommetjie lifestyle.
