This week’s podcast guest is a lady of many firsts. Lorna Scott is dynamic, driven and authentic. She is a disruptor and a storyteller using Gin. She launched Inverroche Gin in 2012 in Still Bay. She had never worked at a distillery before, let alone had any experience in the liquor industry. Her background included marketing and being the Deputy-Mayor of the Hessequa Municipality.
Lorna was the first to infuse gin with fynbos, creating a new category in the local and international liquor industry. Her passion for sustainability has led to a successful eco-friendly business where 70% of the staff is women employed by the local community and
the entire gin-making process, from distillation to bottle, is symbiotic with the environment.
Lorna’s advice to aspiring entrepreneurs is to learn everything you can about your chosen industry to ensure you have the confidence and insight to make calculated decisions.
Listen to the episode for more information on how she started, the journey this far, lessons learnt and all the exciting things she is working on.
