  1. Here a link to news item , great representation from type 1 manufacturers, unfortunately there was no comments from any of the type 2 manufactures . Would have bin good to hear there take on the new policy change . Tim
  2. https://globalnews.ca/news/7611235/craft-alcohol-industry-saskatchewan-liquor-gaming-authority/
  3. So here is a bit of an update , the provincial govt has posted on there web site the new type 1 and type 2 regulations . Here is the link go to craft bulletin #3 to get the update. https://www.slga.com/liquor/for-craft-producers Hope this helps other jurisdictions to step up and protect there craft producers. British Columbia is still the leader of the pack but were happy with the advancement we have been given in our fight for truth in advertising and keeping our industry honest . Tim
  4. I totally agree with silk city . Everything has its own detectable flavour hell hair spray ,boat gas and turbo yeast are very common flavour notes. We have same law up here but it is a law that would never stand up in court. I dont think there is a vodka on the market that a trained person couldnt taste and tell you what the mash bill was. We learned a big lesson when we started marketing in eastern Europe. Eastern Europeans dont favor north american vodkas because there is not taste in it , they refer to it as turn and burn. Great mixer if you mix ur drinks but most dont. Its also interesting to note that alot of eastern European vodkas that are shipped to canada taste nothing like the same brand that is sold in the country it was made in . Weird huh
  5. Would you be able to take a close up pic of the tightners on the bands thanx

  8. Yes it would be positive to see right across canada . There has been some horrible trends take off in saskatchewan over the past 2 years hopefully this is a start to fixing the problem . Tim
  9. Thanks guys were so pumped about it , next big step is educating the public and pushing the distinction to our over seas crowd . It was perfect timing for us , coincided with the release of our new pulse crop spirit line. As soon as i have a link to the manufacturing license ill post it .
  10. Well friday was a great day for Saskatchewan, the govt released the new rules for distilleries in this province . Since early summer the govt has been trying to fix the problem. In last 2 years the craft industry here has bin a mad rush for the bottom shelf , who can sell the cheepest gns . Now the govt has split the industry into 2 groups type 1 and type 2 . Type1 being distillery that mash and ferment 100 percent of there product . And type 2 those who source there product (ngs) and simply bottle it . Along with this distinction comes a fifty percent drop in production taxes for type 1 Distllers and roughly double production tax for type 2 . Unfortunately they are are still allowing type 2 operations to use the term craft .....but iguess we ll have to let the public decide what craft means . We really wanted for the govt to take the stand of the BC govt regarding use of sourced alcohol and calling yourself craft . How ever we are happy to have the distinction from the govt so we can educate the public . Its yet to be seen if type 2 are going to still have craft benefits like self distributing, tasting rooms, ect ect . I ll keep u posted Tim
