What could we learn about business and entrepreneurship from a mechanical engineer turned craft gin maker? Well you would be surprised. Not only have Chandre Christians and her business partner, Nicolette Morkel, changed professions, but they have so much insight and business lessons to share. Welcome to Die Besigheids Kombuis (an Afrikaans series dedicated to Afrikaans speaking entrepreneurs.
2020 was a year extremely unkind to anyone who had invested in the liquor industry but even during these trying times, White Water Distillery, together with the copper pot distilled signature gin, was still able to satisfy some avid gin connoisseurs.
Die Besigheids Kombuis is hosted by Naomi Basson, an entrepreneur with a long and successful career in business. Today she is joined by Chandre Christians, one of the co-owners of White Water Distillery. Not only did they start the business just before lock-down, in the way of purchasing the existing distillery, they have already racked up industry awards for their craft Gin.
Soon they will be expanding into the craft Brandy and Whisky market, and we can expect great things from this female duo of White Water Distillery in the future.
