By Reid-Whitaker, Desiree
The inspiration story of the Cardrona Distillery 'Ever since I was really little, I have dreamed big dreams. It's nice to imagine what could be, and leave it at that. But I've never been that sort of dreamer. I've always wanted to take one of my dreams-find just the right one-and... turn it into something real.' Southern Spirit is the story of how former dairy farmer Desiree Whittaker and her husband Ash took a risk to realise a dream of setting up a world-class distillery. Their quest to produce a single malt whisky that would compete with the best whiskeys in the world is classic story of Kiwi persistence, sacrifice and self-made success. It's also a modern-day tale of living off the land in the high-country. Southern Spirit is an inspirational business story that will appeal to anyone who everyone loves a bold, brave and brilliant entrepreneur.Read more

Desiree Reid-Whitaker is the founder and managing director of Cardrona Distillery in Central Otago, New Zealand. Desiree is a Nuffield Scholar and former farmer from South Canterbury. In 2011 she began researching distillation and the crafting of great whiskies and spirits. She travelled widely for two-and-a-half years to learn her craft, including visiting many of the world's great masters in the United States and Scotland. In 2013 she sold her farming business and went in search of the perfect location to realise her dream of creating a whisky that would stand tall on the international stage. Two and a half years later, the spirit flowed from the Cardrona stills for the very first time, and her journey to create world-class spirit began. Desiree lives in Wanaka with her husband Ash, and their two children.
