New Harbour Distillery was founded by husband and wife team, Andri and Nic Janeke, who have become figureheads in the South African craft spirits movement, having educated over 1000 people and helped set up many different distilleries and brands.
Nic, our Master Distiller, pursued his dream at the age of 26 and is the youngest distiller to ever own and operate a distillery in South Africa. As one of the most sought-after distillers in the country, Nic continues to be a pioneer in the industry by using a combination of modern, innovative, and experimental distilling techniques. Although this is a harder way to distil, the combination of botany, science, and alchemy pushes the boundaries of what an alcoholic drink should be.
We aim to inspire people to rethink spirits and create new brands that have limitless opportunities. Nic and Andri have become figureheads in the South African craft spirits movement. They have educated over 1000 people and have helped set up many different distilleries and brands.
