  1. Ok, this one seems like it should be an easy one to determine. Is anyone carrying a stock 750ml Nordic style bottle with a ROPP closure? The lighter glass version is ideal.

    15 and 30 gallon barrel racks available

    The filter housings are SOLD. The racks are still available. If you want them, make an offer!

    Issues with a small equipment supplier

    Still using the sockpuppet account, dude. Try logging in under a different one. That may help.

    15 and 30 gallon barrel racks available

    Bumping this post with an additional two items, as well as a price savings! The racks are now $50 each. Plus: We are selling TWO membrane filter housings, both from TCW. Link: https://store.tcwequipment.com/products/basic-stainless-steel-cartridge-housing?taxon_id=3 20 inch models. Brand new, never used. Retail for $625. We are selling ours for $575. Or $1000 for both. Add a diaphragm pump and you have an awesome in-line filter set up! Buyer pays shipping from 29673.

    Distributor and wholesaler markups

    Agreed: Distribution is being consolidated all over the place. Consolidation means less competition. That means they take more in the value chain and we take less. New market entries/new distilleries: If you want to make some gains in the first few years of business, lobby your state legislature for limited self distribution. Especially if you volunteer something like paying an additional 5% of the taxes the state would have received had the distributor paid them as a middle man.

    Bottlemate 910 label machine

    We had the bottlematic for years. Bulletproof. Ran probably 20-30 thousand bottles without many hiccups.

    Is anyone using a monoblock filler?

    If so, hit me up. We're planning an upgrade and wanted to ask someone whos using one about cleaning, etc. PM is fine, or email me at dr at sixandtwentydistillery dot com Xox!
  8. We have two types of barrel racks available for shipment. One is a modified single-bar 53 gallon barrel rack. It fits 30 gallon barrels and 15 gallon barrels (pics show how they fit). These are $65 each. We have 13 of them. We will not part them out; they go all together. The other rack is custom made for 15 gallon barrels. It's the black one. They are also $65 each and we have 6 of them. We will not part them out. Pics below. Buyer pays shipping from 29673. Email DR at Sixandtwentydistillery.com

    Case Sales Database

    I'm gonna wade in here and say that the 4000/5000 case number has a bunch of qualifications attached to it. How and where they sell that volume matters. What is their retail to wholesale balance? Do they sell 80% of their volume in their distillery store? Do they sell 80% of their volume in cocktails at their distillery bar? What state are they in? What metro area are they in? You get the point: there are too many variables to list that would put a number on case sales/breakeven point.

    Turn Key distillery and Building for sale

    Is that bottling line a filler and capper, or just a capper? Wasn't sure. If you have model numbers, that'd be awesome. xox

    How Much Should Proofing/Bottling Cost?

    There are a few contract bottlers on this page. By the sound of the somewhat limited info, you may want to reach out to a few and see what it costs to get in glass. To answer your question about skill: Yes. Plus, filtering will be necessary if the product is fresh from barrels.

    Corking machine T-Corker

    We run one of these on a fully automatic line and it's pretty awesome.
  13. We're in search of an inline ROPP capper we can add to our existing pack line. Single head is probably fine, but we can go multi-head. Any ideas, suggestions or advice is appreciated! Thanks!

    Sediment in finished bottles

    There was a great article about this in Distiller magazine in December or November. I don't have a link, but it's worth a search.
