On today’s episode, I'm excited to welcome back to the show Nikki Oesterle, co-founder of Papaiti Gin, located in Whanganui, New Zealand. Today, we catch up on her journey and experiences of starting a craft gin distillery in New Zealand during the pandemic, where they are now in the process, their first gin products, what's next for the distillery, and of course, a fun gincident story.
About Nikki Oesterle and Papaiti Gin
Nikki is the New Zealand-based co-founder of Papaiti Gin, a craft gin distillery in the making. What started out as a wild, absolutely gin-infused idea a couple of years ago, has blossomed into reality, as Nikki and her partner Adrian have set up their premises in Whanganui, New Zealand and are now selling their first bottles of gin. Combining her passion for creating delicious gin using locally sourced botanicals, with her special knack for digital marketing, she has created a visual experience through Papaiti Gin’s social media presence, taking followers along their journey of opening a craft gin distillery.
Note: The day after recording this episode, Papaiti Gin received their off-license and can now sell their products directly to customers.
