    Oregon Oak barrels 30 gallon

    The flavor profile is quite different. Yes, using adjuncts can also be a less expensive way to sample/finish whiskey. If anyone has more interest in the barrels or adjuncts let me know, I can send samples of the wood. Westland is doing very on their limited edition Garryana: https://westlanddistillery.com/garryana-3-1

    Oregon Oak barrels 30 gallon

    I have a buyer for 20 of them if anyone has any interest let me know.
  4. I am working with a local cooper who has qty 27, 30 gallon Oregon Oak barrels for sale at $800 each. These barrels are made from high quality very rare 7 - 10 year seasoned wood and can be toasted or charred to your specifications. As someone who has finished whiskey in Oregon Oak barrels, I can tell you the flavor is very bold and loaded with vanilla and other great characteristics not seen in standard Oak. If you google "Oregon Oak Barrels" you can find out all kinds of technical data and what companies are currently using them in production. Bulk discounts will be considered, these won't last long. Contact me directly. Lenny Gotter 503-358-6552 lennygotter@gmail.com
  5. I would also like to add that tasting notes are a great addition to a sell sheet. Answers the "so what does it taste like" questions.

    Biggest surprise

    My reply wasn't meant to be a big discussion on music licensing. As a business owner, we each need to decide whats worth the risk or not. ASCAP and BMI will send you threatening letters and if you are in an urban area they have reps with territories, and eventually, one of them will come in and write a little report and send you a letter.

    My tasting room was tiny....if you play music in a place of business where customers can hear it, you have to pay: https://www.bmi.com/licensing/#faqs

    Biggest surprise

    There are all kinds of little costs that eat up your profit. I had someone from the Dept of Agriculture stroll in my distillery one day, the end result was that I needed to have a license from them, even though we didn't produce a food product, and I would never see them again. The license is $380 a year and they do not prorate, so I have to pay $380 in March and $380 again in June. Sure that's only $380 a year but the little things add up. Play music in your tasting room? Someone from BMI or the other artist rep companies will eventually come in a demand a license. Luckily thru DMX you can license for all three agencies for $25 a month, instead of the $25 per license per company that they will try to stick you with. The list goes on and on.
