A former executive at fashion and beauty companies including Sass & Bide, MAC Cosmetics and Jeanswest, Julie Otter founded Otter Craft Distilling with 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.
In this episode of the Drinks Adventures podcast, Julie discusses how she came to leave this successful career and take the plunge into launching a start-up in another industry.
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.
