  5. I would like to notify you of new opportunities we have opening up here at Grand Traverse Distillery in terms of whiskey production. Located in Traverse City we have been distilling Michigan grown grains since January of 2007. Starting with rye vodka we then expanded the line to include a variety of vodka products, whiskey, gin and rum. The past four years we have invested heavily in whiskey production, (100% straight rye whiskey and bourbon). Our Ole George 100% Straight Rye Whiskey is all rye, no corn or malted barley in the mash bill and has been awarded many top metals and best of category several years at the annual ADI meeting. Our current operation can supply all our clear spirit needs and we can put up around 200 53-gallon barrels of whiskey per year. In 2018 we have a new 2,500L whiskey still coming in from Holstein. This still can increase our production of whiskey well beyond our needs at this time and if we pick up five more fermentation tanks we would be able to distill around 600 53-gallon barrels per year. We have local farms that can supply our current and future grain requirements and with a local malting house only three miles from our distillery malted barley and malted rye needs are taken care of. What’s the bottom line? In 2018 and into the near future we have excess capacity for whiskey production. Are there distilleries that would be interested in contract whiskey distillation? If so let’s talk and see if we can help you increase your craft whiskey inventories. Just last fall we acquired an additional 5,000sf of barrel storage. Currently, we are aging over 650 barrels of whiskey and have room to age your spirit. If you choose we can also help your operation with aged product along with custom whiskey production. The advantage in doing this is you can have today the same spirit that in going into your new barrels. You are welcome to develop your own mash bill. Please contact me if you are interested in discussing possibilities. Kent Rabish KR@GrandTraverseDistillery.com

    Aspiring Distiller/Operations Manager

    To Whom It May Concern: My name is Nate Thompson. I recently finished an MBA program at the University of Southern California. My long-term career goal is to open my own distillery. In the meantime, I am looking for an opportunity to work full-time as a production operator and work toward becoming an operations manager to further hone my skillset and continue my education in the industry. My experience in spirits to date includes a work-study exchange with Hakkaisan Sake Brewery in Niigata, Japan, where my team reviewed the company’s struggling U.S. strategy, ultimately encouraging them to break ties with their current distributor, target fine-dining on-premise accounts, and invest heavily in exporting their shochu portfolio. I then worked for Castle Brands in New York as a summer intern, ostensibly acting as the assistant brand manager for Knappogue Castle and Jefferson’s Bourbon. I primarily worked to create a long-term brand plan for Knappogue 1951, retarget on-premise accounts, establish a sales incentive program, and pitch unorthodox marketing events. Following graduation from USC, I spent several weeks as a production intern at Smooth Ambler Spirits and PA Pure Distilleries to compliment several years of experience as a hobbyist. I have also recently started taking courses in thermodynamics, microbiology, and process mecahnics. Coupled with my graduate coursework and experience as a data analyst, I can assist with everything from mash cooks to sales reporting. Please take a look at my resume attached, and feel free to reach me at the contact info below if you have any questions. I am temporarily living in Portland, Maine, but willing to relocate. Thank you very much for your time and consideration. Sincerely, Nate Thompson natekthompson@gmail.com M: (207) 669-2687 Thompson Resume 10-6-2017.docx

    Multi shot production

    Hi folks We're looking at multi shot production of gin on the smaller of our stills. My understanding is that for a x2 concentration multishot you would add twice the amount of botanicals to your standard charge (say 100 litres at 50% ABV). Once the new make spirit is collected this is diluted down with more alcohol before proofing to bottling strength. My instinct tells me that if the total spirit collected from our still was say 40 litres at 75% then we would add a further 30 litres of alcohol before proofing (40/100 x 75). Could anyone elaborate/confirm/deny. we are aware of other issue such as proportional scaling of ingredients etc. Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers - a cold distiller hugging his still to stay warm!

I am looking to learn everything I can in all aspects of production from, whiskey, bourbon, rum, gin, brandy's, cognac, liquors, etc. Since 2015, I have been apprenticing with my father, Master Distiller and International Consultant Hubert Germain-Robin, absorbing information and learning from his knowledge of distilled spirits and the aging process, If you or know anybody who is perhaps looking for an Assistant Distiller please pass this message along and I will gladly email you my Resume for more information.

    TTB Reports

    I had a few questions with the monthly TTB reports: I am a little confused on where to document bulk spirits before they are made into gin. We make vodka first which goes from our production account and then gets deposited into our storage account before bottling. When we need to make some gin we take some of the vodka from our storage tank and then redistill it into gin. Do we show the spirits coming from our storage account back to production for redistillation? How would you show that on the production reports? If that is the case what happens when you make some of your cuts when you redistill it to make gin? You could technically be left with less proof gallons in the end. Or do you keep the gin completely separate from the vodka storage tank and it still is technically in the production account until it is made in gin?
  25. Lassiter Distilling Co

    Predicting Yields for Rum Fermentation

    Hey Folks, My partner and I are working on our business plan and one point is creating some challenges for us. Not having a background in fermentation or distilling, I was hoping someone or some people on here could point me in the direction of some information on how to work out yields - specifically for molasses-based rums - for fermentation and subsequent distillation. I imagine the variables are sugar concentration of the wash, the type of yeast, time, and temperature (and possibly others), but I'm not familiar with the basic formulas to estimate ABV of a wash post fermentation. Could anyone recommend some resources or offer advice? Thanks for your help.
