  1. As a SUNY instructor in craft distilling I realized I have a lot to offer anyone interested in learning more about distilling and/or starting a distillery. If anyone is interested in learning how to distill or have interest in starting a distillery I would be happy to assist, educate, and consult. We have gone thru everything, purchasing the building, sourcing the equipment, equipment installation, distillery set up, product development, TTB issues, proofing, bottling and Insurance issues and continue to learn valuable lessons that new distillers need to know. Rates are dependent on your need and start at $75.00/hour . Feel free to reach out by text or phone if you have any questions. 518-225-3909
  2. Hi All, I am an experienced consultant and former head distiller available for work on a variety of projects. I have experience building new distilleries and helping existing ones. I can assist with equipment selection, buildout, recipe development, operations, troubleshooting, cost forecasting, staff selection and training. I also provide writing and education services for the beverage, aroma, flavor and cannabis industries, including copy, blogs, articles and proposals. Additionally, I have an experienced graphic designer that I work very closely with who can create great labels, logos and merchandise (she also did the suit in my profile pic). I am based between New York and Baltimore, but am happy to travel domestically and internationally. I just returned from Italy, where I taught a workshop on The Favor Science of Distilled Beverages to students at the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Pollenzo and will be presenting on similar material at the ADI conference in Denver next week. For more information, please see my attached resume. References and writing samples available upon request. Cheers, Matt Matthew Seán Spinozzi The Spirited Consultant +1 917.693.8684 spinozzi9@gmail.com Matthew_S_Spinozzi_CV.docx
  3. Our distillery was acquired earlier this year by a venture capital group. The new group does not have an interest in producing nor retaining our vodka formulas so I am offering them for sale to the forum. Specifically, we have the following formulas for sale: 1. Premium Vodka/80 proof/triple distilled/charcoal filtered for 96 hours/100% corn mash 2. Vanilla Vodka/70 proof/triple distilled/charcoal filtered for 96 hours/100% corn mash and proprietary, all-natural flavor recipe 3. Raspberry Vodka/70 proof/triple distilled/charcoal filtered for 96 hours/100% corn mash and proprietary, all-natural flavor recipe 4. Orange Vodka/70 proof/triple distilled/charcoal filtered for 96 hours/100% corn mash and proprietary, all-natural flavor recipe These formulas would be perfect for the start-up or, about to be start-up to get into the game quickly. I could turn these flavors around in 11-15 days, mash to market. Our asking price for the formulas are $2,500/each. I would like to sell all of them in one lot if possible and can provide a discount if I can do so. Please PM me for additional details or text at 315-506-5084. Thank you, Ben Reilley
  4. My wife and I recently had our farm distillery in New York acquired by a group out of state. Prior to the acquisition, we were producing (3) types of vodkas, a Premium vodka, Raspberry Vodka, and Vanilla Vodka. Our most popular product was Disco Lemonade, a raspberry based canned cocktail that caught fire in the northeast. We used a very small equipment set-up to get started in our business in an 800 sq. ft. space in the back of a warehouse with no tasting room. At this point, I am offering my expertise as a consultant to smaller distilleries and start ups in equipment selection, production processes, mash bill formulation, product development, and financing considerations. Please email me at ben@lifeofreilley.net if I can be of any assistance either formally or just to book an informal call to discuss your project. Cheers and thank you, Ben Reilley Life of Reilley

  6. Hey, everyone! Just thought I would chime in and say hello. I founded Eastside Distilling here in Portland in 2008. Was the CEO and created all the brands and marketing until October 2014 when I sold the company. I stayed active and on the board until October 2016 and now work as a private consultant, writer, and spirits educator. Just posted some insight in the tasting room section and hope to share whatever I can to help the craft industry succeed. The 2018 ADI conference is here in Portland, so I hope to meet some of you in person!

  8. I am a business consultant with a PE in chemical engineering. I became interested in this industry after realizing that many of the code enforcement officers dealing with the many new, small distilleries have little or no background in dealing with this type of business.I put together a two-hour training program for them and will present it three times in NY by the end of March, 2017. I also will present a slight variation on it at the 2017 ADI Conference in April. I also have 40 years of experience dealing with facility design, construction, building codes, distillation, mixing, and much more. You can check me out at www.topsengineering.com or on Facebook. Have a safe and enjoyable day! Ross Topliff. PE
  9. Hello everyone, Happy Holidays from MA. My name is Evan, head distiller at Turkey Shore Distilleries in Ipswich MA. Over the past few years I have been contacted by several startup distillers from around the country. Many have just walked in the distillery doors looking for a tour and to see the operation in action. At Turkey Shore, there is always an open door policy. The reason why I started consulting was based upon a few guys wanting to open up a distillery here in MA. They had recieved a very vague quote from another consultant and they were not to impressed. These guys asked if I would give them a true and honest detailed quote. They accepted my bid and now have their DSP as of the begining of December, very exciting. The reason why I was hired by TSD other that being a I trustworthy friend, I hold a Bachelors in Science degree and was also a General Contractor for 10 years doing plumbing, electrical and finish carpentry work. Starting up a distillery involves all of those things. Anyone can sketch out plans on piece of paper but to be able to do sketch the plan and completing it is invaluable. These are some of the qualities and skills that lead me to become head distiller and operations manager at TSD. After dozens of future distillers contacting me, I was convinced I could truely help companies open up their business the correct way. Starting up a Craft Distillery is complicated and expensive if not set up correctly. I have read many posting on this website and can relate to most of the comments. This distilling world is exciting but the hype of being a distiller/ business owner takes one thing that most people do not have much of which is Patience. If you have that quality, your business will have a fighting chance. A good and realistic business plan and a honest budget are very important. Expect delays and plan on them happening , expect more money being spent than thought, but patience is the number one expense. With this great quality, many unnessary mistakes and wasting money will be avoided. This is where a Consultant is very valuable. A good Distillery Consultant will help your distillery avoid many mistakes from being made and help you make the correct decisions. If interested in recieving a true, honest consulting quote for your distillery, please don't be shy and contact me. I will respond to all inquries. Thank you for reading this and good luck. . 1A Distillery Consulting Evan Parker evan@1adistilling.com 978-500-2286 www.1adistilling.com
