  1. Is this a half-hearted joke? a $1 million revenue business is not worth $5 million sale, unfortunately.
  2. I have a 300 gallon copper and SS Still for sale. Never used as I wasn't able to get distillery off the ground 2 plates, all with CIP and bypass Dephlegmator, electronic water controls flow oil jacketed. It's just over 12' height, 12" column. Dropping price to 38K, that's more than 10k than I paid. Perfect condition, great Still.
  3. I have a US-FIF pump for sale. It is high temp and food grade transfer pump with remote control. 1.5" removable Tri-clamp. With shipping we paid $3200. I'll sell it for $2700 and I'll pay the shipping in US. thanks, john

  6. where you located? probably not worth cost with shipping.
  7. Hi, not sure if you have moved ahead with your investment, but I think there are some more important questions to ask that don't have much to do with the mortgage and interest rate, and that's defining your return on investment. If you spend 450K on the business, can the profits from the business support the payment of that loan? If so, what is the margin left after the payment, and what's your expected return? 10% would be a typical minimum you'd want. Kannuk above hit some points well, and most of these can actually be preformed through doing some pivots with a little data analysis. Look at sales, revenue, and net profit. 3 million in revenue might sound enticing, but that doesn't mean the business doesn't actually lose money. Best of luck! John
  8. This is a tough one mate. valuation on a startup distillery is hard because of the shear time it takes from "start" to actual "sales". A couple things to consider are: 1. What do you bring to operation? In terms of time and money. 2. What does other person bring to table? Are they putting in time? how much money? Pre-startup and revenue is almost impossible to decide, but time and money are the metrics. John
  9. Yes. sounds like a good yield to me. Molasses can have up to 50% unfermentables, so you are doing well my friend.
