Lata is the co-founder and Chief Brand Officer of Kati Patang, an award-winning craft beer brand in India. Tatler Asia has rated Kati Patang in the Top 20 most exciting craft beer brands in Asia. As Lata immersed herself in the craft beer and brewing process, she got deeply interested in the core ingredient in beer: water. Working with different breweries, she saw first-hand how water from different locations defines the taste of beer. So, when she chanced upon the Fine Water academy and its curriculum, she got excited to explore further to appreciate the world of “real” water.
Lata has worked extensively to understand the chemistry of water in the brewing process, how the compounds present in it produce pH variances, alter reactivity and change everything from color to the taste of the beer. She has used the learning as a water sommelier in the craft beer industry and strongly advocates for conserving water sources and sipping better water. Prior to this, Lata has over 10 years of experience in the field of advertising and consumer research across India, Canada, and the USA.
