Meet Mzwandile Xaba, one of our Shoprite Hustle Entrepreneurs of the Month.
It all started when Mzwandile’s father taught him how to craft traditional sorghum beer, known as “umqombothi” in Xhosa. This beer is always consumed out of respect.
To pay homage to his late father and where he comes from, he created Gologo Spirits, an experimental distillery that produces premium spirits. The name speaks to the spirit of South Africa, taken from the Nguni word for distilled beverages: uGologo.
With Gologo Spirits, Mzwandile aims to produce premium craft products that will be respected by his peers and enjoyed for many generations to come.
Mzwandile, we respect your hustle. Let’s keep the tradition alive by boosting your business with the bottling, packaging and branding it deserves to create awareness! This will surely help when you are ready to introduce your mobile cocktail bar!
