Sue - Paper Plus Masterton - November 2021

Each year we see wonderful South Island rural and high-country books featuring homesteads and the unique terrain – this year we have a business set in amongst some of the most picturesque landscape producing the finest distillery. Part business book, part celebration of the South, this is definitely recommended for your Christmas lists you may be planning. “Desiree Reid-Whitaker is the founder and managing director of Cardrona Distillery in Central Otago, New Zealand. As a Nuffield Scholar and former farmer, Desiree began researching distillation and the crafting of great whiskies and spirits in 2011. This involved extensive travel, visiting the world’s great masters. Armed with the fruits of her travels, Desiree was meticulous in her search for the perfect location to realise her dream of creating a whisky that would stand tall on the international stage.” There are no doubts she has succeeded and now this book celebrates that success.
