  1. Hi guys ! We are looking for manufacturers for an automatic vertical type labelling machine for self adhesive labels. We searched pretty much in vain. We don't need it to be high end, but we want something on conveyor that is rather easy to set up and reliable. Thanks for your help !!
  2. Hi everyone ! I'm looking for some professionnal advice on proofing liqueurs. We have a couple of interesting ideas but we lack some knowledge about proofing sweet spirits. I read other posts but to be honest I don't feel I know everything I should to commercialize a liqueur right now. We need to be pretty accurate when it come to alc. % etc. .. I'm in Eastern Canada so I would be please if someone in the Northeast would accept to receive me at their distillery to exchange on our practices and ideas ! Thanks guys Jean-Philippe
  3. We are using a Race Label machine to label our bottle and it's true that it's very dificult. We have a slightly tapered bottle with a clear label that is a wrap around ... Very very difficult to label and be rproductive but it can be done with a lot of effort .. See the video about it on Youtube : Cheers Jean-Philippe
  4. I'm glad to read this actually ! As a wannabe craft distiller myself, I was just wondering how these vodka could be on the market and what was the federal government reaction about it. If in fact you can do it, it's perfect like that because let's say it clearly, the law is prohibitive and bad. For me I think it's a little bit different. My project is located in Quebec and we must sell to the state-owned liqueur stores SAQ. I think it would be impossible to us to do what you're doing in other provinces where you can sell your spirits at your distillery.. We can't unfortunately ... I don't know if I'm right but I heard a new craft distillery here in Quebec that is trying right now to sell a vodka made from apples and they have all sorts of trouble with labeling it as vodka ..
  5. Hi guys ! I'm a little bit confused about the canadian legislation in regard of the employment of terms to name spirits. For example, the law says : B.02.080. . Vodka shall be a potable alcoholic beverage obtained by the treatment of grain spirit or potato spirit with charcoal so as to render the product without distinctive character, aroma or taste. But there's a few vodkas from fruits made by many craft distillers in Canada. I don't understand how this is possible. Thoughts anybody ? Thanks ! J-P
