CAPTIVATING THE HEARTS & MINDS OF DISCERNING DRINKERS
NIP OF COURAGE
We are the leading Aussie craft spirits advocate.
Nip of Courage is:
the first spirits distribution company and wholesaler in Australia that is female owned, and
the first spirits distribution company and wholesaler to ever represent 100% Australian made craft spirits.
Our operations are based from our head office in Sydney, Australia. Nip of Courage operates with an emphasis on providing our customers in Australia and beyond with high quality, boutique craft spirits sourced from Australian artisan distilleries.
Our diverse team is led by founder Kathleen Davies, an experienced sales and marketing professional with almost 30 years’ experience in the liquor industry in Australia and abroad.
We thrive on creating awareness for artisan distillers who put it all on the line to follow their dreams and create successful livelihoods. This success comes from sharing stories and celebrating the art of distilling from incredible distilleries all over Australia.
Nip of Courage works in collaboration with a selection of ‘little Aussie battlers’ fighting for market share in a market place that is heavily dominated by mass-produced global spirits. Nip of Courage is unapologetic about being the underdog and disrupting the standard within the industry.
