  1. Vodka startup

    I am getting close to pull trigger to open a vodka brand. Right now it's just an idea that I am going to pursue very quickly. Instead of starting on small side plan is to start bigger right away so if demand requires I'm not short on product as have a pretty good marketing plan. I have a budget of $150,000 for equipment (would like to keep around 100k) or less If possible. I want a copper still for sure other than than that other options for equipment are open and would love recommendations. We are going have a decent budget for this and also are looking for master distillers who are willing to relocate and work hard for will make sure you have a place to stay and food to eat in exchange for that. You would get equity in the business only looking for indivuals who are ready to work ass off for next to nothing pay with potential being very large as you would own a small part of company. Please recomend equipment you you would purchase. Any tips you have and anyon interested up in relocating and working dm me.
  2. Biggest surprise

    Here's one for the whole peanut gallery. So I consider myself a huge research geek. I will read and research things to death. But as much as I read and gather info...every issue I answer seems to spawn 5 new questions. Here's the question...what have been the biggest surprises or unknowns as you've gone through the buildout and startup of your distilleries. I feel like I am just waiting for that one big 'uh oh, I never even thought of that'. Thanks in advance.

  4. Hello from Western Pennsylvania: My husband and i produce wine and beer and we are told we are pretty good at it. We have also recently started making cider which has challenges all of its own! We enjoy fine whiskey (single malt) bourbon and rye as well as traditional ginever and dry gins. We love to mix craft cocktails and make our own bitters. I joined the forum to learn more about craft distilling since we eventually plan on opening a small micro distillery and we want to learn as much as possible. Its a pleasure looking forward to seeing everyone on the forums. Does anyone have advice regarding malted grain sources in bulk?

  8. Gin from Vodka?

    Hi everyone. Looking to dip my toes into Gin Distilling and I have a small Alembic Still. After reading alot into the base spirit used, most seem to be using some form of Neutral Spirit. However this is very difficult to purchase in small quantities in the UK. My question is can you use Vodka (standard 40%) as a starting point and then move onto NGS later or would this be a pointless exercise?

  22. Hello everyone! I'm Ed and i joined back in 2012. I'm like so many other newbies who have been quietly stalking the progress and post of others. (Yes i'm watching you... through windows 7). I have been closely monitoring others who have pursued their dream and appear to be successful. Reviewing there activities through interviews, forums, social-media, and their website I hope I've learned from their success and mistakes. I have been collecting equipment and have most of what I need to start-up a 200 gallon still and packaging on a budget. I am looking to network with others in the state and connect with someone else who shares my passion. I have a strong hands-on technical background and would like to find someone with more business knowledge to round out the team. Thanks to all of the more experienced members for posting and providing beneficial information, Ed
