Distell was created in 2000 by the merger of Stellenbosch Farmers’ Winery (SFW) and Distillers Corporation. SFW has long been a major force in the wine industry in South Africa. This company was the brainchild of William Charles Winshaw, an American medical doctor who came to South Africa in 1900 at the time of the Anglo Boer War.
In 1925, SFW was created with Winshaw remaining as the MD of the organisation until 1962 when, at the age of 92, he retired. SFW, as the name implies, excelled at producing quality wines for the full spectrum of consumer needs. This company was also instrumental in the creation of a major new segment in our alcoholic beverage industry – ciders or alcoholic fruit beverages as we know them. One of the company’s key strengths has always been innovation.
Distell is a great company rooted in South Africa, crafting leading liquor brands for people to enjoy responsibly at every occasion the world over. Africa’s leading producer and marketer of spirits, fine wines, ciders and ready-to-drinks (RTDs), Distell employs nearly 5000 people and has an annual turnover in excess of R12,3 billion. We create exceptional brands with strong consumer franchise offering real value for money across the pricing continuum.
A career at Distell is truly a one-of-a-kind experience. It’s more than working for a truly South African alcoholic beverage leader; it’s an opportunity to be a Brandcrafter.
