Catie is the Founder and Master Distiller of Clovendoe Distilling Co. Based in Burleigh Heads (Jellurgal) QLD, on the lands of the Kombumerii people, Clovendoe is the first distillery in Australia to produce low and non-alcoholic distilled spirits.
Catie has been in the distilling industry for five years and is one of a small number of female distillers in Australia. After co-founding Capricorn Distilling Co., a successful rum and gin distillery based in central QLD, Catie recognised the need for products that catered to the increasing sober curious and mindful drinking movement.
Clovendoe Distilling Co. Clovendoe’s Distilling Co. was launched in 2020 with a mission is to create an inclusive sober curious movement and encourage a cultural shift in how alcohol is viewed and consumed.
Combining the craftsmanship of distilling with the finest local and ethically sourced botanicals, Clovendoe’s products are prepared by hand and distilled in small batches in a traditional copper pot still. Clovendoe’s distilled botanical spirits are sugar, gluten, sweetener and additive free, bringing consumers refined, healthy and grown-up alternatives to alcohol and to sugary, boring non alcoholic beverages.
Clovendoe Distilling Co. is now one of the few all-female owned and founded distilling companies not only in Australia but globally.
Sister Pitch Asks: Catie is seeking support to secure the resources (equipment, premises and staffing) required to scale current production and meet future demand. She is also looking for introductions to a great national distributor who will introduce Clovendoe to wholesalers and retailers across the country and potentially export markets, in fact any guidance on how to best engage distributors would be welcomed by Catie. Finally, any and all sales and promotion opportunities are welcomed.
