Sydney distillery Otter Craft Distilling was founded by Julie Otter and her brother Eduard in 2019.
While Eduard has extensive drinks industry experience, Julie's background is as an executive in the fashion and beauty sectors.
Most recently, she was CEO of Australian fashion label Sass & Bide, and she's done stints at MAC Cosmetics, Jeanswest and sleepwear brand Peter Alexander.
There's a lot of 'lifers' in the drinks industry – people who get into it early on in their careers and never leave.
As such I always find it interesting to speak with people with different career backgrounds who bring a new perspective on things, which is exactly what we get from Julie in this episode.
I started by asking Julie how she came to the decision to leave a successful career and take the plunge into launching a start-up in the distilling industry.
