Approximately 500km south of Windhoek, close to the town of Keetmanshoop, is the Naute Dam. The Naute Dam is primarily used for the supply of water to neighbouring towns and for the irrigation of the fruit plantations. What was previously barren, unfertile land now consists of 200 ha of table grapes, dates, prickly pears, monkey oranges and pomegranates. 50 tons of fruit is unmarketable and this will form the basis of the Naute Kristall Distillery. The finest Naute Kristall Distillery Fine Spirits will be retailed through lodges, hotels, restaurants and curio shops throughout Namibia. Michael and Katrin Weder are personaly overseeing the implementation of the project. .
