  3. Gidday, I own a small company in the outback of Australia called Fosseys. We are based in a small country town called Mildura. We make Gin and Whisky Our local area is known for making wine amongst other things, and we have a strong long summer days with clear skies and great soiled, not much in the way of rain, but it all makes for interesting drinkable products. My own personal background comes from making wine Fosseys Gin is a bit unique using grape spirit and several Australian native botanicals, at has proven to be very popular Fosseys Whisky uses our local malt barley and we mature our whisky on ex port barrels. We also produce our own port to provide some consistency in seasoning our barrels This business has been somewhat of a lifestyle business up until now, however we are now committed to spending there next few years in taking Fosseys into the national (and maybe international) marketplace check out out a little further at fosseysgin.com.au, or follow us on the usual social media platforms Cheers Steve
  4. Good morning everyone! I have a ton of hard red wheat that was grown for me by a local farmer/friend/neighbor that I will not be able to get through and would like to offer it up to other craft distillers. I don't have the exact variety in my memory (I can certainly get it if that's important to you) but the value of this wheat is that it is lower in protein (i.e. less foaming issues) than standard wheat that is sold on the market. It tested at 10.2% protein when we harvested, can/will test again for verification. This is in comparison to 14% protein which is what farmers target to not be penalized by elevators/mills. The wheat will be brought to the elevator to be cleaned prior to shipping. Pricing would be as follows: $0.18/lb - supersacks FOB Grand Forks, ND $0.22/lb - 50lb bags FOB Grand Forks, ND Wheat will be available to ship early/mid June. I am willing to deliver if within a reasonable distance, otherwise I can/will arrange freight and add that cost to the total. Also should mention for those who it might want/need to know this wheat was grown in Minnesota. For questions or to place an order you can PM here or email at tyler.seim@redpinedistillery.com Thanks!

  7. Hi everyone, I am the founder of a new, pre-launch Whiskey brand based out of Los Angeles. We're fairly organized, but not yet staffed fully, and working to complete our first round of fundraising. I'm not a distiller, so I'm hoping to learn more about the process, and maybe find an experienced pro or two who are intrigued by the idea of getting involved with a vertically integrated mass-market brand at its inception. If anyone is located in LA and has professional Whiskey distilling experience, I'd love to meet up and maybe buy you a drink (gin, I'd imagine...). Great to meet you all! Andrew

  12. I've tried making gin on a whisky still and the resulting product has a whisky still taint/flavour/characteristic undertone. The same gin made on a still that's never made whisky, results in a lovely clean gin profile. My question to everyone is: Is it possible to clean sufficiently following a whisky run to remove the whisky flavour characteristics? The reason I'm asking is I'm trying to decide if I'll risk making whisky in my gin still. If I'm not 100% confident I can return the still to a clean state I won't risk it. I don't know anyone with a copper pot still with any experience in making both gin and whisky on the same still. All assistance greatly appreciated. Cheers, Mech.

  14. Many people and books talk about bottle shock, and how 3 months in the bottle greatly improve the spirit as it gets its initial oxidation, rest, and mingling of chemical components. The ADI book Distiller's Guide to Rum suggest the greater part of 3 months for storage after bottling before selling, and we have definitely noticed a marked improvement in our spirits from the day they went in the bottle till a few months later. With that being said, does anyone have experience in the time of vatting making a real improvement? Example. If we have to release a product in 3 months, will it be more beneficial to blend and vat the barrels for 3 months, then bottle and sell immediately; blend and vat for 1 month then bottle and allow rest; or allow equal vat and bottle times? Eg. Does the best mellowing happen from blending in the steel vat or resting in a bottle? Thanks for the help!

  19. I've had some fun reading through your forum, thought i'd sign up. My family own and run a hotel in the North of Scotland, which was the SLTN whisky bar of the year 2014 and is the No1 rated whisky hotel in the world (as voted for by members of whiskybase.com) We have recently been approved planning permission to convert one of our buildings to a distillery. If all stays to plan, we should be producing with our column still by April 2016 and with pot stills by June 2016. The distillery is pretty tiny and is entirely self funded (if all sticks to plan). We'll be initially focusing on doing a proper gin in order to generate cash to pay for barley and barrels so that I can continue my experiments in single malt whisky. We've spent years researching old style whisky and why the best whisky ever made was produced in the 1960's and before. We think we understand enough to venture into the same ballpark as the likes of pre 1967 Laphroaig, 1930's Glen Grant, 1950's/1960's Bowmore etc. Our first full scale legal experiments in Scotland, produced by us, will soon be 2 years in cask.

  22. Does anybody know of any reliable companies specializing in rack-house design. Currently we are only a vodka/gin distillery but are looking to start a pretty significant expansion which will include barrel aging. This will be our first rackhouse and we want to make sure we do it right! Is this specialization common place in the industry or are we over-thinking it? Thanks Matt 1911 Spirits
  23. Can we help you out? We have: 1. excess distilling capacity 2. access to new oak barrels in a variety of sizes 3. ability to produce fantastic whiskey, in custom mash bills or standard recipes We are looking for distilleries or brand owners that are wanting to either catch up or get ahead on their whiskey stocks by contracting with us to produce their bulk whiskey here in Middleton, Wisconsin. Our ideal customers are looking for anywhere from four to twelve barrels of whiskey a month on a standing "subscription" basis. We can produce on a regular schedule and either hold for truckload quantities or ship individual barrels when completed. Each batch will have mashing notes, grain tracking data, and arrive in a brand new, white oak barrels, charred or toasted to your specifications. Some of our customers have aged their whiskey from us in the past couple of years and are now winning awards for its taste and quality. Break the habit of working with the "you'll take what we make for you" bulk whiskey distilleries and enjoy being actively involved in the process of making a unique and high-quality spirit that will have much stronger marketing value. Organic certified bulk whiskey coming in 2016! We are anticipating that our capacity will be filled quickly with this announcement- please don't hesitate to contact us. We select customers based on many factors, not just the size of the order. Please contact Shane at shane@deathsdoorspirits.com for details and pricing. Please hold off on phone calls, we will answer emails promptly- promise. :-)
  24. Looking for some insight and resolutions from anyone that has experienced the same situation... Currently working (more like forcing!) a whiskey COLA approval through. I teamed up with a local brewery to make the beer and I distilled it to produce a whiskey. To reflect this I stated "Distilled from full flavored craft beer" and TTB is not having it because the word "beer" shows up on a "distilled spirit" product. So they are requesting a formula approval. I explained that it is merely distilled from a beer mash just like any whiskey albeit a particular kind of beer mash (chocolate oatmeal stout beer mash and doppelbock beer mash). They want the formula approval (which I don't want to wait around for, of course) to decide whether it should be classified as a whiskey or a distilled spirit specialty product. Seems absurd since it is "Spirits distilled from a fermented mash of grain at less than 95% alcohol by volume, etc etc" just as defined by regulation. The mash of grain is called a distiller's beer so I'm not sure why they're looking at it as if I've done something ridiculous and added beer to a whiskey. Anyways, I see Corsair has their Oatmeal Stout Whiskey with a statement "Distilled from an Oatmeal Stout Distiller's Beer" so I'm going to try and reword it like that. It seems Great Lakes Distillery did something similar by teaming up with a brewery nearby using their pumpkin lager and they've got a statement of "Spirits distilled from grain and pumpkin with spices and natural flavors" which seems they had to go the distilled spirits specialty route. However, a distilled spirit specialty product is stated in the BAM as "Generally, any class and/or type of distilled spirits that contain or are treated with flavoring and/or coloring materials and/or nonstandard blending or treating materials or processes" which doesn't apply to a simple distiller's beer mash as I did none of the listed items. So, that is my rant. Curious how anyone else may have listed the Class/Type for a similar situation, if any. I imagine it'll eventually get approved as a whiskey since the formula will show 50%+ of the ingredients are malt and barley...so perhaps I should just suck it up and wait for the formula...but then again it always rubs me the wrong way on how self-righteous TTB can be... Thanks for any and all help, suggestions and comments!
  25. If you cant find someone who fits the bill but they have the right personality and can do attitude we could train them to be a Distiller for you. https://blackbuttondistilling.com/product/master-distilling-course/ Let us know. Jason
