    Montana Micro Distillery for sale

    Of course. I will PM you my number
  5. Greetings from Montana, I am a microdistillery owner in Corvallis, MT looking to sell both my equipment and inventory. Turn key operation with aging barrel inventory as well as bottled inventory. Specializing in apple brandy and honey spirit (whiskey). Business valued over $200,000 with equipment and inventory. Asking $150,000 firm for a quick sale. Attached you will find majority of the business assets. Sole reason for selling is due to family problems. If interested, post or PM me and I will send you my phone number. I will entertain offers on inventory only but not on equipment only. Either both or only inventory. Distillery Assets.pdf
  6. Just delivered my first order to the state warehouse. If you are in Montana, feel free to request "Legendary Gold Honey Spirits" at any bar or state liquor store. It is ready for delivery.
  7. Well, just finished my first official bottling run. Bottled 28 cases (6 bottles/case) of the 750 ml bottles and 12 cases (12 bottles/case) of the 375 ml bottles of my Legendary Gold Honey Spirits. I should be able to get the states first shipment to them sometime this week when I get a chance. You cant believe what a huge weight has been lifted now that I actually have product ready to go.
  8. Labels are FINALLY here. Going to be bottling this week ready to sell.

    Brand New Pro Refrigeration Chiller for Sale

    The model I have is a 3 HP 220V/3 phase/60 hz model. You can see all the specs and images here.
  10. Greetings everyone, I am in a unique situation where I find myself no longer needing a brand new Chiller Unit I bought from Pro Refrigeration. It has less then 20 hours of operation on it. Has the extra casters and all the bells and whistles. I paid $8500 factory direct and I would be willing to sell it for $7000 just so I can liquidate it as soon as possible. Damon Reed from Pro Refrigeration, who is a user on here, has been my contact person throughout the entire deal from start to finish and knows all about the unit so if you require a second source for info on it he would be a good one. I will follow up with some pictures and technical specs on it later today when I get a chance to get back over to the warehouse. Thanks, Luke
  11. Just thought I would let everyone know that I have everything completed including label approval and I am just waiting on my labels to actually arrive...hopefully this week considering they have had the approved proofs for a month now Anyway, I still find it amazing how slow things progress within this industry. Luckily I have found a few things on the side to keep busy until I get my labels. Ill post as soon as I have actual labeled product to sell
  12. Labels approved and ordered. First sale should be within the next week or so.

    label approval time

    I submitted my labels Feb 1st and they still are not all approved. I have 1 approved and 2 pending that I have been going back and forth with the TTB about for 2-3 weeks now with little to no movement. Im personally frustrated beyond belief with these people and there complete lack of professionalism. Every freaking day that goes by is costing me time and money and from their responses, they couldnt care less. If you guys hear of a disgruntled distillery owner at the top of a clock tower in western montana you can have a safe guess who it is.

    Fed Excise Tax Reduction

    Lots of great proposals/bills being submitted both on the state and federal level that would help all of us in the business. Thanks to all of you guys putting this all together for us. Speaking for myself I very much appreciate it and I am working on doing my part in getting the word out to our representatives. Thanks, Luke, @ Mountain View Distillery

    Chilling Ideas Wanted

    I have recently gone through this problem myself. My "temporary" solution is using a Pro Refrigeration chiller unit, circulating pump and 2x300 gallon holding tanks hooked up in series. The primary circulating loop which feeds the cold water into the still and a bypass that mixes the hot water with the cold water so that the chiller unit can keep up easier. It works good and at the end of the day I just leave the chiller and circulating pump on and it cools it back down overnight. Its not a perfect setup because it doesnt utilize the heat in a productive way and its not super cost effective because it draws on electricity to chiller the water as well as heating the water. I am interested in working on a permanent setup as well for when I build my new building....in the hope that my business does well. Ground source heat pumps, chilling ponds, in floor radiant heat,...all kinds of ideas but its integrating them into a building with a working/limit free setup.
