The people

We have gathered the best people possible for Team Feddie. People with a deep, nerdy knowledge of whisky and gin, a passion for exploring taste and a nose for good craftsmanship.

Craig Brownhill
Quote Miles

Our knowledgeable and ambitious whisky distiller

Craig Brownhill

When Craig was a newly graduated astrophysicist, he realized that his guiding star was whisky and decided to do a master in “Brewing and Distilling”. As the president of the Water of Life Society at the University of Edinburgh, Craig arranged weekly tastings for up to 100 guests for many years. He came to us from Scotland in 2019 and now lives on Fedje with his girlfriend, their dog and his trombone. He relishes jazz, the sea and the dream of making the world’s best whisky.

Our fearless and explorative gin distiller

Therese Storebø Østervold

Our Tessa is in love with nature and explores it in all the ways she can. She loves the angle and perspective from a kayak, both on the sea and white-water rivers. In her days of bartending, she was driven by competition and fearlessly threw herself into any challenge. The efforts took her around the world, meeting thought leaders, people with knowledge and ideas, learning craftwomanship and the art of flavours. With experience and knowledge in hand, inspired by the mesmerizing nature of Fedje, she is now making our gin.
