  1. Cooper River Distillers is selling off our inventory of aged spirits in barrels - available to someone with a DSP who can do a transfer in bond. A mix of bourbon, rye, rum, brandy, and experimental whiskeys (see http://CooperRiverDistillers.com for info on our product lines) Currently sitting in bonded storage in Camden, NJ. Would like to liquidate ASAP, so offers and creative ideas are welcome. The brand names and labels that we were marketing these spirits under are also available as part of a sale. All spirits were "hand crafted" the hard way, from scratch in Camden New Jersey, often with New Jersey-sourced raw materials - no sourced spirits here. All have been well-received in the marketplace and consistently garner top-shelf pricing. A full breakdown of what we have can be seen on the second tab of this spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Gt07UUKG8CK40JiIVkgSOBKrg-rjiy6dAk33qbvzudQ/edit?usp=sharing Serious inquiries only - please email james@CooperRiverDistillers.com

Jump in head first - Operating, 4 year old New Jersey craft distillery for sale, asking $450,000. * We're on a month-to-month lease - you can extend that and continue operating or move our operation wherever you want to take it. * We make critically-acclaimed rums, whiskeys (bourbon, rye, and other), and brandy - all from scratch, in-house and with unique flavors and stories that truly stand out in the marketplace. * After paying off debt (included in asking price) the business would be profitable at current scale. * Lots of upside for someone with vision to grow and expand the operation. * Owner selling for personal reasons - more than happy to stay involved indefinitely as a consultant or part-timer. * Partial seller-financing may be available. * Sale includes everything in the distillery and intellectual property: All distilling equipment, brands, recipes, customer lists, wholesale accounts (approx. 30 strong accounts & another 100 occasional accounts), delivery mini-van, tasting room furniture & equipment, and spirits inventory (Approx. 300 proof gallons of rum; 500 proof gallons whiskey; 175 proof gallons of brandy aging in barrels; 1,100 bottles of packaged, ready-to-sell inventory).

    You Can’t Fake Craft - You Can Purchase Capacity

    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.

    Rye Whiskey Mash - Help

    Does anyone have experience making rye whiskey? If so, can you describe some of the major differences in mash bill or procedure that made a successful rye? After two extremely low-yield batches, I am scouring for resources on rye whiskey. I have not had much luck finding detailed information. If you know of any good books, journals, or websites on rye whiskey (particularly the mash) please let me know.

  8. 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

    Rye flakes entering lines when distilling.

    Hello all, I've been happily distilling on grain for a year now on a 500 gallon vendome +agitator, 4-plate (bubblecap) column +deph, and condenser without much issue. Typical procedure is to run once through our column at low steam (finished) or occasionally stripping straight through the condenser at high steam (low wines). Yesterday was the first time I've had a 100% rye mash for distillation (2:1 grain:water); my thought was to make it in the spirit of old pot still distillations; stripping through condenser to low wines then running once through the column with trays open only using the deph to compress heads and tails. Not only did I get my low wines but now my lines have what I assume are flakes of rye throughout. Is this a common issue with rye mash distillations? My next thought was to cip and then run the low and slow method through the column to finish but I don't want to deposit a load of rye inside there. I would be very thankful for any advice from others whom make rye whiskey. Thank You

    Whiskey Distillation Efficiency Problems

    I have a distilling efficiency question - although our ferments are going well, and according to our calculations our mash should be about 6.5%, we are only get 3.5 gallons of alcohol out of the still, including heads, hearts, and tails, of the available 6.5 gallons. Let me show you the details. Corn Whiskey Original Gravity - 1.065 Final Gravity - 1.015 Our calculator tells us our starting abv is 6.56%. When we run we get about 6 gallons of 100 proof (heads and tails) and if we run out the tails to the end we get about 1.5 gallons of 60 proof tails. By my calculation we are only getting about 3.5 gallons of our original 6.5 gallons out of the still? We are using a 100 gallon column still, distilling on the grain, and agitating the whole time. What can we be doing better?

    Pulse-air for whiskey blending

    We're having a bit of internal debate as to the benefits of using bump air to create large displacement bubbles in the spirit holding tank versus impeller blades. The tanks are 4,000L and conical. The theory is that the 'air' plate will thoroughly agitate any sediments are dense adjuncts (we also produce liqueurs, vodka, etc.). The science is that you are not introducing more air than, say, blasting the spirit through a a pump at 40PSI to the filling machine. Certain parties believe this method will deteriorate the whiskey so I'm calling on anyone with pros or cons to this method. Otherwise we'll have a different problem with the impeller blades not circulating the liquid in the tank's bottom. Thanks so much!

  18. Hi, We are a group of guys who have been talking about starting our own Nordic craft distillery in Texas. The Burbon scene is quite mature down here and apart from a few vodka distilleries there is not a whole lot more different craft distilleries around. Myself being originally from Sweden I believe there are some great new spirits I would like to bring to the US such as Schnapps, mulled Wine and nordic style single malt whiskeys. We are currently in the very early steps to build a business case and I wanted to join here to read more about what other have done and hopefully be a part of this community. we are planning on running a wide style of products but are looking for a Islay style pot still set up with a hybrid column reroute in order to also do high end vodka based products. starting small for us is key. please feel free to recommend any equipment suppliers you guys recommend as well as TTB lawyers in the North Texas region. looking forward to learn more on here /J
  19. All, I am reaching out to anyone who in interested in purchasing bulk Bourbon 2 to 4 years old as well as anyone who would like us to create your own mash bill to lay down. Please email me if interested in learning more and if you have any questions. jph@heintzglobal.com
  20. Thank you for reading! A couple of guys in the wine and spirits industry starting to put the nuts and bolts of a NH distillery together. Looking for distillers/people who know how to distill whiskey, vodka, etc local to NH. Someone who may want to have a conversation or two and see if there is a mutual industry. We possess the skills to move the product, just not the skills to produce it. Thanks for reading!
  21. Well, I always like to know who I’m dealing with so here is a bit about us. I grew as a military brat; Dad was in the US Air Force. I grew up mostly in Northern California and received a degree in Biology and Biochemistry in San Diego, before getting a PhD in Molecular Genetics from Notre Dame (Go Irish!! Sorry, we’re programmed to do that). After that I moved to Northern Sweden for my post-doc, spent 8 years there and met the communist (my wife). Olga, my partner in crime, grew up in the Soviet Union. After Umeå we moved to Aberdeen and lived in Scotland for 4 years. The communist wasn’t happy there so we moved back to Sweden, Stockholm to be exact. I am currently an Associate Professor in Neuroscience at Uppsala University. My only claim to fame, I’ve gotten quite drunk with two different Nobel Prize winners. WIth Ängarna (the Meadows in Swedish) Destilleri (distillery, but I guess you figured that out) our goal is to make fantasitc American-style whiskey. We really believe that the Stockholm region is a great place to make whiskey. We have cold humid winters and warm dry summers. Had the local water evaluated, and it is perfect for making whiskey - No iron, high calcium. It is similar to Kentucky, though admittedly the calcium levels are lower. The water is also very clean, as is the air. We have fantastic grains in Sweden, high starch corn and high lignin rye (spicy). We will even get our malted barley from Sweden. Sweden grows excellent barley. We are currently in the process of fund raising and looking for head disitller. Happy to join the ADI forum!!
