Hello everyone in the ADI. I want to introduce the Heretic Spirits distillery, coming summer/fall 2017 to Collingwood, ON. We have made some great friends so far and look forward to meeting a lot of you at the ADI convention in Baltimore in a few weeks. Cheers - Scott Morrison (Heretic Spirits) Please check out our splash holding page at http://www.hereticspirits.com.
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!
Waverley_Spirits posted a topic in General DiscussionThe Town of Perth, Ontario, Canada, and Waverley Spirits Limited invite you to attend Behind the Grain - The Art & Business of Craft Distilling, a symposium taking place February 8 and 9. The symposium will deal with just about everything you need to know about starting your own distillery, including the science of distilling, the regulatory framework in Ontario, financing, branding, packaging, marketing and sales! The program for Behind the Grain stems from our experience as a start-up in the craft spirits industry. Featured speakers (including Jason Lippa of Distillery Solutions; and Kris Berglund, Ph.D., Distinguished University Professor of Food Science, Michigan State University) have extensive knowledge of the craft distilling industry and are eager to share their knowledge and foster the development of new craft spirits producers in Canada. Join us in Perth for a great weekend of learning and networking in a relaxed and charming atmosphere! Hope to see you there! Sincerely, Jamie Snasdell-Taylor Founder Waverley Spirits Limited
Hello fellow forum members! Just wanted to introduce myself - I am planning to open a craft distillery in the historic Town of Perth, Ontario. Been working at this for about a year now and am at the recipe development stage for our first product, a character vodka made from local wheat and corn. So far we've run one sizeable test batch with promising results. Our goal for 2013 is to get our vodka to market and to get working on some whisky. If you're interested in following our progress, we're on Twitter @waverleyspirits and on FB at www.facebook.com/WaverleySpirits. Also have a website http://www.waverleyspirits.com though it remains a simple splash page for now. Looking forward to many hours of reading and learning here on the ADI Forum. Very happy to be part of such a great industry. Hope to meet as many of you as possible over the coming years All the best for a great 2013!
