FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS SAILORS ROUNDING THE CAPE OF STORMS WOULD FIND SAFE HARBOUR IN THE CITY OF CAPE TOWN. ON THE SOUTHERN TIP OF AFRICA, EAST MET WEST AND THIS FORMED A MELTING POT OF CULTURES AND INFLUENCES.
The Meiring family originated from Cape Town and returned from all over the African continent to start Cape of Storms Distilling Company.
With Dylan’s background in the alcohol business and past home distilling experience, he fitted perfectly into the role of distiller.
Mark had spent his life in logistics and so he headed up sales and distribution while Antoinette, being naturally organised and a wizard with numbers headed up accounts and admin.
Finally with Bianca’s natural creativity and attention to detail, she ensured that every aspect of Cape of Storms looked perfect, from social media to packaging.
In August 2021 the family sold their shares to Wayne Shonfeld, a passionate home distiller, who is looking to build on the amazing award winning work done by the Meiring family and to take the distillery to even greater heights.
We are very excited to be bringing Cape Town its very own craft rum. Our goal is to bring ideas from around the world together to create beautiful rums like no other.
