What inspires you?
Creative people, nature, music, art, literature
How did your project/business idea come about?
After years working in the wine industry I trained as a Whisky/Gin Distiller at Lark Distillery in Hobart. I made a couple of barrels there as a pleasure project and began to realise there was potential to do more and experiment.
What stage is your project/business in?
I am in production mode, producing spirit to go into barrels for maturation.
What were you doing before you launched your business/project?
Due to the time whisky takes to mature my business will not be launched for another few years. I continue to enjoy distilling Gin with my dear friend Natalie Fryar for the Abel Gin Company and whisky with the Chris`s at Launceston Distillery.
