  1. Hi All, We’re in the market for an automated filling line, and we got a very attractive quote from No Limits Packaging out of Florida. I couldn’t find any reviews of their equipment. Anybody know their equipment or have any dealings with them? thanks.
  2. Hey, The barrels are the problem. I have used several different cooperage's barrels, and you should never have dripping from a barrel. They put nails through the hoops because their barrels will fall apart in a few days from being empty. If they're Black Water, you should consider talking to an attorney. Several distilleries I've spoken to (not to mention us) have suffered enormous losses. We have Black Water barrels that sat on racks right next to Barrel 53 barrels for the same amount of time, and the Black Water barrels literally lost hoops and started falling apart when we tried to roll them somewhere else. None of our Barrel 53, ISC or Speyside barrels have any problems. It's not you, it's them. Call me or have your lawyer call me for more information. Best, Blitz
  3. Are you having problems with Black Water Barrels? We are suing them for huge losses from about 40 defective barrels. Also here in NC
  4. We’ve been very happy with our Waukesha pumps. They handle ANYTHING from feints to 30# mash. We’ve had chunks of metal jam the impellers and the pumps just kick off the VFD current limit and start right back up after the rotors are cleared. They are also reversible and require minimal upkeep. Using a good quality VFD is a must to protect the gearmotors from damage and to control speed and direction.
  5. We started in the business by focusing on our product quality and brand building, using other companies’ excess capacity, and getting called all sorts of names by the “real distillers” some of whom are still in business. We are proud to work with new brands, and we don’t believe that craft is a zero sum game. I still believe that we started the right way by using other people’s investments to get on the shelf with our brands. Below is one of my posts from another topic, but I think it sums up our view of your questions. Begin quote——— If you’re on the forums looking for equipment for your new DSP, the reality is that you are probably about 1 year away from actually making any spirits. To go on the market with an aged product, you are still two to four years away even if everything works perfectly the day you open (it always does right?). Now, you could try to purchase some “quick aged” or commodity bourbon and pass it off as your own “blend” for a few years, but consumers are getting more savvy about this practice every day. Also, the quick aged really hasn’t gone beyond the “pencil shaving” stage What if you could make your own spirits in our facility under a production contract, gain valuable production experience, and put the product into your own custom cooperage with your logo on it? When you open your DSP, your barrels get transferred into your bond and you’ll have saved one to three years of delay in getting your business off the ground. You can even test mashbills and cuts to eliminate lost batches when you move into your new facility. Send me a message and I’ll help you explore the only real way to start your craft brand and retain the authenticity consumers demand for top shelf spirits.
  6. Josh, can you tell me the mashbill(s) for the aged products you have available and the number of barrels and price? feel free to send a private message

  8. TTT Also, we have contract whiskey production capacity coming online in May. We will help you get your aging stock started by letting you use our facility and equipment to get your product into barrels.
  9. Hi Andy, We have some 2018 production capacity left - about 75 barrels as of this date. Your client would need to move fast to secure the remaining 2018 production before we sell it to our existing client base. We just energized a 50kw solar array at our facility which will cut our carbon footprint almost to zero. We currently make a malt mash bill for another client. You would need to provide malt on a regular delivery schedule. Please feel free to call me at 919-323-2777. We are in North Carolina and use water (untreated) from the the Triassic basin aquifer, and are in an optimal aging environment. We can warehouse the barrels here or do a TiB to their warehouser of choice. Best, Jonathan Blitz
  10. Did this sell? If not please call me at+1-919-323-2777
  11. Have you ever wanted to own your own brand of liquor but don't have $500k to invest in a dedicated facility? Have you ever looked at the brands in the store and thought "I have a better idea"?
