  1. We make a great product from imported 100% blue agave syrup. Our Platinum received best of category and double gold. I’m sad to admit that our Reposado and Anejo didn’t fare as well they only got gold. We’ve never thought of selling any of our product in bulk to another distillery, but I guess if the price and volume is right we might be interested. www.WigglyBridgeDistillery.com
  2. Bump this is a great read and would love more info and discussion.
  3. That is a tall order. The average craft distillery sell less than 1000 cases per year. Let’s say their 6 packs that would be 6000 bottles. If you wanted to pay someone poverty level compensation let’s say $28k per year their Commission would be around $4.70 per bottle or $28 per case. You will also have to pay them mileage if they use their own car to go around. The last figure I saw was .58 cents per mile driven. Let’s say they drive 6500 miles in that year to sell your 6000 bottles then that overhead cost would be $3770. Your are now at $5.30 per bottle or $31.77 per case. I’m not going
  4. Get ahold of Marty Duffy North American sales manager from Glencairn. We get our directly from them.
  5. We’ll take 1000 of them off your hands. Info@WigglyBridgeDistillery.com PayPal?
  6. What control state we operate in a couple and their different.
  7. Passed both Houses as a Permanent Bill (no more extensions). Now off for The Presidents signature probably later today. -Cheers
  8. We use SpiritShippers when needed. Work great. Approved FedEx UPS. One and done. 1 to 12 bottle styles. We use the 6&12 for LibDib orders and single for samples.
  9. Well when your out straight you are smart to slow taking quotes. NoLimits is a small shop doing great works and every time I went to the shop they were busting at the seems. A business running at maximum production with low overhead. It’s what built our great country and now every wants Amazon prime with dollar store pricing. 🤯 Price,Quality, Service you can only get two. I chose price and quality and excepted a long production time and would do it again in a snap.
  10. We’re ink on glass on all of our products. We do hand apply a small label on our Agave’s along with the ink.
  11. 4.2 to 4.8 pg per bushel consistent average on a 750 gallon cook. 5 to 6 hour total cook and cool. Cook at 18.5 gallon beer. Pitch at 15.5 to 17 brix pH 5.8 to 6. End up with a 23 gallon beer at set.
  12. We always enjoyed our 30gals at around 18 months+/- when we started out. But over the years and filling over 1000 30 gal barrels they are now hitting 3yrs and it’s now our sweet spot. We’re going to let some go 4+ yrs (thanks COVID) to see how they do next year. We also compare our 3yr 30’s against our 5 year 53’s and their definitely different and enjoy both equally. We always save a case of each bourbon bottling and will do a horizontal tasting at some point in the future. -Cheers
  13. If remember right, around 80% of the craft distilleries the United States sell less than 500 cases a year.
