  1. R5 Whiskey from Charbay in California takes Racer 5 IPA and the distills and ages it. It looks like their label does not mention the original beer and is typed as a flavored whiskey (class/type 149). Here is their label: https://ttbonline.gov/colasonline/viewColaDetails.do?action=publicFormDisplay&ttbid=18066001001154
  2. Thank you for the suggestion. We can create green/sustainable distilling section of the forum.
  3. Smirnoff sells roughly 230.4 million liters/year if my math is right that could mean they would save as much as 691k liters in alcohol per year.
  4. Before the recent change in proof variation I spoke with a distiller who would run Smirnoff 100 proof through his TTB approved benchtop machine from Anton Paar because it would always come out precisely at the lowest point of the allowable tolerance which at the time I believe was 49.85% ABV. It would not surprise me if there are other large distillers were doing the same thing but 1% under is obviously outside the expanded 0.3% tolerance so there is a calibration issue or some are cheating the expanded tolerance.
  5. This company The Tierra Group sells a bulk agave spirit made from an agave concentrate (not syrup) created in Jalisco and distilled in the US. I have not tried the product so I cannot vouch for its quality though I have heard some initial positive reports. https://thetierragroup.com/agave-spirits/ As for USA distilled 100% agave spirit from whole plants, I only know of two California distilleries that have tried but I do not think they have produced enough to sell in bulk.

    American Distilling Institute is proud to announce the third year of the Distilling Research Grant, an initiative to support craft distilling by funding scientific research. Donations from world class vendors will be auctioned off to raise funds annually. The funds will be dispersed to students and interns by an independent Advisory Committee composed of academics, distillers and scientists. The third annual online charity auction will run Mar 1 to April 16th, 2021. The goal of this endowment is to grow the body of knowledge of craft distilling. Auction items can be found online at https://distillingresearch.org/ starting March 1, 2021
  7. Hi, 

    I made a post a few days ago in for sale peer to peer, that is still pending approval. Another post I made that day has already been approved. Just wanted to check in and see what exactly, if anything, I needed to change in order to get the post up.

  8. I know Wood Hat Spirits in Missouri store their barrels in a shipping container on their property because they don't have enough room in their distillery.
  9. You can auction booze through an approved vendor and in Kentucky you can now sell vintage liquor to a retailer who can then resell it. Other than that I'm not aware of any other legal ways to sell liquor per-to-per.
  10. Since the list was on the back label my guess they just highlighted a couple of key botanicals.
  11. Hi Ian back in 2015 The Spirit Guild got a label approved for a botanical brandy. That looked like... Fanciful Name Distilled from (name of fruit) Botanical Brandy With a list of botanicals in the description on the back label.
  12. Join us for Part One of a Three-Part series as we host the industry experts Thoroughbred Spirits Group for a strategic discussion on the opportunities and risks of incorporating bulk distillates into your portfolio.

The hosts will also have an open Q&A session. The free webinar will be held on December 1st at 10 am Pacific. Please submit any questions you have relevant to this topic in advance to info@tbspirits.com. Space is limited so please register in advance to reserve your spot. Register Now
  13. An Oregon distiller I know runs direct fire stills off of propane that comes from a big tank on the property because he is out in farm land. He said that some of the up sides for propane were that it burns cleaner and hotter than natural gas.
  14. I don't remember hearing anything about ginskey becoming a class/type. With the new update to the labeling and advertising laws all spirits except for vodka are allowed to have an age statement including gin which was a round about way of allowing aged gin without creating an additional C/T. The new rule also extended the bottled-in-bond labeling rules to gin and since its announcement last summer there have been 3 or 4 gins released as BIB because they were distilled in a single season, aged in new charred oak for at least 4 years, bottled at 50% ABV etc.
