Katrina White, owner and director of White Kat Beverage Co. grew up appreciating wine and wholesale businesses. Her father, Paul White, founded Whitehill Wine Company in 1999, ending up on the Mornington Peninsula due to his love of wine, sales and the costal community. Katrina joined Whitehill Wine Company in 2008 where she helped her father grow the wholesale liquor business to the west coast.
Her journey began with knocking on doors, cold calling and meeting traders all up and down the coast as she focused on sourcing the best boutique beverages not available in the main chains.
In 2014, Katrina established White Kat Beverage Co. where she expanded the business to solely focus on the Surf Coast, Bellarine, Geelong and Western Victoria region continuing wholesales and adding a range of other services.
White Kat Beverage Co. has grown since its founding with the addition of some amazing staff all of whom continue to focus on the best products and unmatched customer service. The team works tirelessly to support clients and are available during times when they are needed most.
Katrina and her trusted team look forward to working with you and your business and offering you the best products available.
Meet The Team
Having been in the hospitality industry since she was 18, Stacey worked in NSW, WA, SA before finally settling in Victoria. She studied a bachelor of Viticulture and Wine Making but a fear of spiders and love of the hospitality scene brought her back to sales. Stacey loves a glass (or 3) of the good stuff, but a quick beer never goes astray, especially after a long day. Fun Fact: a label in the White Kat portfolio was inspired by Stacey. Can you guess which one?
