We put a call-out to the women in Australian distilling to give us an insight into who they are, and why they chose this industry, here’s some of their responses!

HOW MANY YEARS HAVE YOU BEEN IN THE INDUSTRY? 1-3 years YOUR MOST PROUD MOMENTS IN THE INDUSTRY? "Winning a double gold at San Fransisco for our Mandarin gin in our first year on the market and being asked to be on the judging panel at the World Gin Awards."
