    Why use GNS

    Small guys with pot stills can not make GNS with the consistency and price of the ethanol plants. The possibilities with different botanicals are endless. The same base can make an infinite amount of different gins. Not sure why you think botanicals don’t have an impact. edit: sorry, did not see this was a thread resurrected from the dead.

    COLA Help for Blended Whiskey Products

    Blended Whiskey =/= A blend of straight whiskeys. I believe Jailbreak has given you sound advice. I would love to know how you finally get approval (and see the label).

    COLA Help for Blended Whiskey Products

    Just a heads up, bourbon and rye blended together are not a “Blended Whiskey.” Blended Whiskey is a class/type that refers to a blend of whiskey with something else (NGS) and requires a formula approval.

    Tuesday Morning Insurance Tidbit - Standard Vs. E&S

    Makes sense. I’m just glad our building has exceeded requirements for all of their questions.

    Tuesday Morning Insurance Tidbit - Standard Vs. E&S

    Have been insured by this company for four years. I will PM you specifics. 99% of it involves questions about compliance with the NFPA. Our building was built well above and beyond code, and we haven’t changed anything since the start of the policy. After multiple onsite visits, and we thought they were pacified, there will be another site visit about construction and compliance in a non production area of the building. It is just incredibly strange that these questions are being asked 4 years after the fact.

    Still design - copper heads/domes

    One way to start, pick out your five favorite spirits (gin in this case since you are making gin) and look at what type of still produced them.

    I am guessing you are doing on grain distillation? What kind of still are you stripping with?
