            The inspiration story of the Cardrona Distillery 'Ever since I was really little, I have dreamed big dreams. It's nice to imagine what could be, and leave it at that. But I've never been that sort of dreamer. I've always wanted to take one of my dreams-find just the right one-and... turn it into something real.' Southern Spirit is the story of how former dairy farmer Desiree Whittaker and her husband Ash took a risk to realise a dream of setting up a world-class distillery. Their quest to produce a single malt whisky that would compete with the best whiskeys in the world is classic story of Kiwi persistence, sacrifice and self-made success. It's also a modern-day tale of living off the land in the high-country. Southern Spirit is an inspirational business story that will appeal to anyone who everyone loves a bold, brave and brilliant entrepreneur.
