  1. Hello All, I am looking for some information on rules governing spirits production in Australia. I know in Europe it's the EC-110.2008 rules. What would be their version of the CFR 27? Thanks!
  2. Re: Southernhighlander, I am aware that you can sell by the drink and by the bottle, and yes, you are correct that MO is one of the best states in the US for distilling. What I think you misunderstood is that an individual may not have a retail liquor license separate from the one that they have listed with their DSP. So, for instance, you cannot own a bar and then decide that you are going to open a distillery. Trust me, I have been down this road. I have dealt with everyone at MO ATC and been represented by Charles Smarr on the issue. Re: Dhdunbar, I would never argue with your experience with TTB affairs. I was speaking specifically to what MO will NOT allow you to do, which is to have a "Tasting Room" not joined or immediately adjacent to your production facility. Hope this clarification is helpful.
  3. JD, You may not own a separate retail by the drink license and a distillery in MO. No one on the DSP can. As for "close proximity" the Feds will allow a radius of several miles for a tasting room. Missouri however, will only allow it to be in/on the premises of the distillery. Hope that helps. Where/when are you opening?
  4. H-D, I know that John McKee out at Headframe Spirits in Montana did some work with this. You might look into getting ahold of him.

    Gin defined

    I agree with SCD. It has been explained to me that since "main characteristic flavor" is a fairly nebulous standard, using juniper as the primary botanical by weight should at least give you cover on your formula. I am personally of the belief that it's not gin if you cannot taste juniper.
  6. It is highly unlikely that any amount of redistilling will remove all the flavor from your gin. Especially on "micro-distilling" equipment. I would recommend starting with a bench top still or a small 6L still to try test batches. That way you can afford to dump it if you don't like it.
