  1. Greetings from Ontario! Congrats on setting up one of the few educational programs that covers Canadian distilling, and all of our fabulous governmental regulations That's definitely something the industry needs up here! Hope things are going well, and thanks for joining this forum!
  2. Hi Shane! Too bad I didn't post this message a month earlier! My wife and I were in Sudbury about three weeks ago visiting some friends - would have loved to meet up! Definitely looking forward to getting this off the ground, and excited to keep in touch! Thanks for the words of support! - Jon
  3. Thanks, Adam! You are correct - I am based out of Guelph, and hoping to get set up near there! I'll PM you my contact info - would definitely like to keep in touch!
  4. Hi everyone! First off, thanks to everyone who shares their knowledge on these forums. I've been reading them for a long time, and I'm excited to be starting down the road to becoming a distiller myself in the coming year. My name is Jon, and I'm building a plan for a small scale brandy distillery here in Ontario. Will be a part-time endeavor at the start, and I've had the chance to work with a local distillery for some time to get an understanding of all the joys of distilling in Ontario, and travel North America through my 'day job' and meet and work with other distillers in the US and Canada as well. I'm really interested in traditional, pot-still distillation for both brandy and whiskey, and I feel it's worth the extra effort. I'm of the mind that if I start small, and work to build a brand and following, I can make Ontario brandy successful, and produce some other fun products along the way that people get excited about. Looking forward to being a part of this community, and one day sharing some of the knowledge I pick up along the way. I know it will be a long, difficult, frustrating, expensive, not particularly profitable journey. But it's mine, and I can't wait to take it!
