When life gave this Paraparaumu couple lemons — they made an award-winning limoncello
NZ Life & Leisure Magazine - March 2021

As for everyone, 2020 was a trying year for Bec and her husband Chris Barber as they worked through lockdown, operating at all hours to produce hand sanitizer in bulk, alongside their usual — drinkable — alcohol-based products. While the frenetic pace of those months has eased somewhat, Bec smiles when she thinks about the effect those compliments continue to have.
