Catie Fry founded Clovendoe Distilling Co. in 2020 and is based on the Gold Coast, on Jellurgal Country in Queensland. 

Clovendoe is Australia’s first female founded, owned and operated no- and low-alcohol distillery. Using her distilling skills, nutrition therapy background and fascination with plants, Catie creates inclusive experiences while encouraging more mindful alternatives to alcohol. 

She has won gold medals at The Global Spirit Masters, and this year took home silver at the inaugural World Alcohol Free Awards in London. Stockists include Chandon and the Qantas Wine Club, with overseas exports in the pipeline. 

Catie is ever-aware of the pressures on customers in the current economic climate. She has kept her overheads low and sees the moment as an opportunity to reappraise her values.  

“I understand my morals and my business stance better now and I feel proud about that. I’ve validated the integrity of my business,” she says.
