ABOUT ME

Covid-19 has impacted on many businesses none more than the small business owner and this has necessitated, more than ever, for us to explore ways to diversify. Since 2018 I have been experimenting with brewing. I became fascinated with brewing because I had received a wine making kit as a gift many moons ago and happened upon it whilst having a clear-out; thus the brewing journey began.  Not only did this enable me to develop a range of probiotic drinks called Gut Instinx  but more than that I began making our wine (moonshine or hooch if you prefer), in the kitchen, using basic ingredients; following basic recipes and processes. Resulting in amusingly imaginative wines. This 'Shine' produced has always received amazing feedback for its robustness, flavour, and quality. As a result, just like the probiotic juices, I have decided to commercialise and market it to the masses.

THE PRODUCT

In principle, our wine is simply the fermented juice of fresh and frozen fruit. But it is by my hands that it is transformed from simple fruit juice to the complexity of wine (yeah right, lol); controlling the process so that the end result is that of a beverage high in alcohol content and full of fruit flavour. Let’s keep it real; it isn’t the most luxurious or refined drink but it is appetising and palatable. The ‘Shine’ produced depends on factors including type of fruit, yeast used and the sheer fascination of experimenting with inventive flavours to find out what works best with a particular process and ingredient (sourced locally where feasible). Our product is versatile; you can find a way to drink it that suits your preference. Whether it’s straight, chilled, on ice, or in cocktails, it makes for a great drinking experience.

WHO'S IT FOR?

When buying alcohol many consumers tend to look for the budget option, this doesn’t necessarily mean lowest quality or the lowest price on the shelf, but rather the best quality-to-price ratio. Relative to other products on the market we believe we fit this bracket. Our wine offers the best quality and the best price, relative to the other made wines on the market. We see our 'Shine' appealing to the budget-conscious, millennials, students, cocktail fiends or any individual wishing to obtain the feel good factor from knowing you’re supporting a small business rather than the big corporates and drinking our locally produced and uniquely flavoured alcoholic beverages. One sip of the rich fruit flavours and deceptive sweetness will have you hooked!
