Bec Kay and Chris Barber handcraft Koakoa Limoncello and The Bond Store Gin and Vodka on the Kapiti Coast, NZ
In late 2017, Chris and Bec decided the time was right for a new challenge. You see, the Kapiti Coast isn't really like anywhere else in the world. It is a community of creative types who are known for combining astute business skills with a desire to create the world's best products and services - be it brewing beer, creating art and music or manufacturing award-winning cheese and ice cream
In 2017, Chris and Bec who have lived on the Kapiti Coast for most of their lives were ready for a new challenge. They set their minds to creating premium spirits and liqueurs supported by a world-class brand. At that point, Koakoa was born.
