What a week for us!

Kapela Distilling Company won “The startup of the year” award, and a 100.000 kuna money prize from the City of Rijeka, Croatia. Wow! 🤪

We just can’t thank enough for all the help and support we received from the Start-up incubator Rijeka, the program we truly and highly recommend.

So, what’s next for us?

“Startup of the year” award is such a wonderful incentive and a motivation to work even more to get where we want to be, to become the best we can be. 

This is just the beginning. There is so much work ahead of us, securing the funding we need, finding the appropriate space for production and in the meanwhile continue working on our recipes and brand design.

Distilling is our passion, a passion that we take very seriously and we sincerely appreciate all the support and positive energy. So many texts, messages, calls, emails in the last couple of days, such an overwhelming rush of positive energy.

Thank you all for that and we promise, we will stay humble and continue to grind day in, day out.

Here’s a few more photos from the Demo day event:

We could never fit any frame, neither by size, neither by our mindsets.
