Well, only a year since the last post! Let no-one say this business is for sissies! What a year it has been since we opened our doors in December 2017. What began as a retirement project has grown into something a little more substantial. And it has been a year of highs and lows as we learn about the industry, its products and its peculiarities.
As I write, I am sitting in Sydney, Australia, here to attend the Australian Distillers Association conference on the weekend in Adelaide. As I did in my previous company, it is nice to try to benchmark what we do in South Africa against what is happening elsewhere in the world, to learn as much as I can about the world of craft spirits, and to open up opportunities.
And at last, our new look website is up and running. Lots more to add to it, but the bones of it are here. Thanks to Rochelle who worked above and beyond the initial scope with love and passion. Hope you like what it is now, and what it will become.
And hopefully, as things settle down in the distillery, there will be a bit more time to add some more reflective notes in the blog – at least more than once a year!
Until then, grab a bottle and enjoy the summer!
