Hout Bay Harbour Distillery Team


The team behind Hout Bay Harbour Distillery are Mike and Paula Schmidt, who spent 10 years building the popular craft soft drink brand Frankie’s Olde Soft Drinks.

Having sold their previous business in 2015 and looking for a new challenge, they decided to move into the growing and exciting world of small batch craft alcohol production.

They have teamed up with their daughters Emily and Jessica for this new adventure, making this a true family affair.
