  2. Are you looking for a 4 head bottle filler that is in great shape? We have an almost new Vinters Vault 4 head filler. Used only for 8 weeks for a special project. We bought it for 1700 and would sell for 1200. It is this unit with stainless steel float. https://www.thevintnervault.com/bottle-fillers-bottle-filler-pro-4-spout-with-stainless-steel-float-bf-1091/ If interested please send me your email address in DM. Thank you for your time

  4. August 4th 2021 is the auction. More info is listed here https://blackbirdauctions.hibid.com/catalog/294963/whiskey-exchange-2106786/?ipp=10
  5. I've got another tractor trailer load of Canadian Whiskey coming into the USA in two weeks for a number of contract clients. If folks would like a pallet or two or more I have space to bring them onboard. The whiskey is light and sweet with great caramel and toffee notes. But look at that age statement and these great prices! Would be great in canned cocktails, as part of a blend or by itself! Let’s talk if you or anyone you know might have interest. Please DM me your email address and I will reach out. Details on the whiskey are below in the attachment. If the ad is up the barrels are still available. I will update with info as inventory narrows.

  7. Just filter it through double thick cheesecloth. It will take the particles out
