  1. Straight Bourbon Whiskey

    Hi there, I have 10 barrels of straight Bourbon that I am willing to pass on. Prefer someone to buy them all together. Aged in 53 Gallon Barrels. 4 grain Bourbon, corn, wheat, rye and malted barley. Grain bill will be included in sale. This is a high wheat Bourbon, nice and smooth. If you have any questions please PM me. Must have a DSP to do transfer. Located in western Wisconsin. $3000 per barrel. Aged 2 years. Cheers!
  2. Barcodes

    Hi there, So I have created my upc barcode for my bottle and my ITF 14 code for the case. Is there any way to test them before I print them? I'm about to print 1000 cases and want to make sure they're correct. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers!
  3. ITF-14 Barcode

    Hi there, Looking for a little help here. I'm using GS1 to create barcodes for my products. I have created upc for the bottles but can't for the life of me figure out how to create a ITF-14 barcode for the case. I'm sure there is something simple that I'm missing but it's driving me crazy. Any help from someone also using GS1 would be appreciated. Cheers!
  4. How much are you paying for stoppers?

    Thank you!
  5. How much are you paying for stoppers?

    I've been quoted $0.39 per stopper with bkack wooden top for 1000 units. Is that too much? Or around average for this amount? Any input appreciated. Cheers!
  6. So I've been contract distilling with a DSP for a couple of years. Aging bourbon onsite at the DSP in 53 Gallon Barrels, using their equipment every 6 months to make a new batch. The time has now come to get my own space and DSP so I can warehouse the barrels, blend and bottle the Bourbon. Looking for any help or advice from others that have gone through a similar situation or have more knowledge than I do on the subject and laws etc. Anything would be appreciated. I understand, even though I will not be distilling, for now onsite I will still have to apply for a DSP. The space that I am looking at will be a shared space with a brewery, I am interested to know if there will be any problems with this. I know of a couple of breweries in town that also do distilling and they just have to rope off the distilling space from the brewery space. The brewery currently use the space for aging beer and storage as an expansion of premises from their brewery at a different location. So I would like to start with a couple of questions. If I go ahead with the space can I just start the application process for a DSP right away? Would I have to get the space bonded and insured first? What else should I be looking out for? Again the space will be only used to age, blend and bottle. Any help would be appreciated to point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance and Cheers from Minneapolis
  7. Fork lift or not fork lift

    OK. Lot's of good info here. Thanks everyone. Looks like a forklift is the way to go, as I thought. I'll keep looking for ways to cheat it but I'll be adding it to the budget for now. Cheers!
  8. Fork lift or not fork lift

    Anyone have any luck moving 53 gallon (full) barrels around and stacking them without a fork lift? Would be interested in figuring some sort of system out for doing this and saving on the costs of a fork lift. Any info would be helpful. Cheers!

  12. Homeless in Minneapolis

    Yeah, well it's kinda too late to change the name now what with the LLC, bank account, web site, facebook etc. all set up. Besides I don't think you can start a distillery in Minneapolis without the letter NOR in the name, Noresman, Du Nord, Wander North, Nordeast Spirits.....lol I think it will be OK!
  13. Drainage

    So I'm looking at a space for a distillery and it needs drainage added. I have been asked what kind of drain I need! just a regular sink drain or something bigger? This leads me to the questions; 1) what kind of floor drains are there? 2) what kind of floor drain would I need to operate a 150 gallon electric still? Any answers would be appreciated. Cheers, Austin
