Cheers 2011, hello 2012!

Laborie Bubby! Yummy!

A beautiful Brut to see in a new year!

It’s been an interesting year for us. One that started with the three of us taking craft and independent products into the trade, progressed to us appearing at markets, events and festivals as beer educators promoting craft beer, and has ended with us doing all of these things and blogging to boot!

We would like to wish all of our followers a very happy and safe new year and hope that with fine spirit and craft brews, we can help you make 2012 better than 2011, and if we can’t, our offerings will certainly help you through it.

So, from Rouvanne, Lenny and myself, Cheers!

First Birthday Cider-bration!

Everson's Cider

It’s Bok Friday and we are wearing our green and drinking our gold. The crisp, dry, golden Everson’s Cider is officially a year old today!

The company, Everson’s Cider, was formed in September 2010, the branding was revamped with new labels and marketing material and the production grew to accommodate the growing demand for Everson’s Cider. Continue reading

Drinking gin in South Africa will never be the same again

Jorgensen's Gin

An exception-to-the-rule gin

Every now and then a product comes along that makes me think ‘‘Wow! This is just perfect!” The problem being that this seems to happen every time Roger Jorgensen releases a new product from Jorgensen’s Distillery in Wellington and so this has occurred 5 times in the last 8 months!

We have just received our first load of Jorgensen’s Gin and it took just one sip to fall in love. Roger has once again created a product that is outstanding and this gin is going to bring great joy to all who are lucky enough to enjoy it! Continue reading

Bringing Camelthorn beers to you!

GFWS

A very full stand for beer lovers

It was quite a hectic couple of weeks in the World Focus offices. When you have two arms to the business, the distribution and bulk-breaking that we do during the week getting our products into stores around the Western Cape, and our eventing side where we take products to events and festivals and educate the public about beautiful new products that are available through the Beer Garden.

No Lovoka, no satisfaction

Lovoka Fusion

So sexy

We have had loads of requests for Lovoka Fusion Liqueur and to date, Cape Town has had a serious shortage of the wonderful flavoured fusion liqueurs. You can see from our comments page how many people are passionate about this product range, and with the demand country-wide, it is pretty much pure excitement! Continue reading

Everson’s Cider, a Mad-Hatter & Green Faeries

E & WF

Welcome to the family!

Last night we popped into the the Wine Affair at the V&A Waterfront to visit the Everson’s Cider stand, and followed that by collecting some stock from the Jorgensen’s Distillery stand at the Taste of Cape Town festival in Green Point. Not a bad way to spend an evening!

Everson's Cider

Look out for this label!

Our main reason for excitement was that we were able to meet up with William, Garda & Glynis from Everson’s to get our contract formalised and to be able to raise a toast to a future of working together.

Everson’s Cider fits in so nicely with all our other beautiful products, and we’re especially proud to have another superb quality, hand-crafted South African beverage to offer our clients. And there isn’t a more wonderful way of being able to say “Cheers!” to the future than with the product in hand! Continue reading

Rockstar in South Africa

Rockstar Energy Drink

Now from World Focus CC!

We were very chuffed today to have officially taken on ROCKSTAR Energy Drink as the newest product in our catalogue. Rockstar claims to be the world’s most powerful energy drink, and I can confirm that it has a decent kick in it, but without the medicinal taste that you get from so many of its competitors. And it comes in a 500ml can! Continue reading

Make the most of 2011

SA flag

Alive with possibilities

To all our friends in the trade we’d like to not only wish you a wonderful 2011 but also hope that it’ll be a year that will see everyone have many good times, happy times and successful times. A new year is always filled with hope, and though we won’t be hosting anything as major as last years FIFA Soccer World Cup, we’re looking forward to business booming just because South Africa is a place where everything can happen!

We’ll be looking forward to looking after our clients in the formal trade; appearing at markets, fairs & festivals; and getting more and more people to try our exciting products instead of just going with what they know. Continue reading

Introduction to the Traders

We always send out the corporate splurb about who we are and that we’re pretty good at what we do, but how often do we actually say what we believe in and strive for?

We want to do things differently. Be treated the same way we treat others, and in that, treat others fairly and with respect.

There is enough business out there for everyone. And everyone needs to make a buck. So the better we are able to work with each other, the better our work will be. It’s going back to basics. It’s living and working according to the principal of ubuntu – that I am only as good as the people around me. Continue reading
