  2. Hello to the community. My name is Steve Raye and I'm president of Bevology, Inc., and Bevology Imports LLC in Simsbury, CT. I have been in the industry for 30 years beginning as brand manager on Smirnoff at then-Heublein/now-Diageo. I had then founded and managed a marketing/pr/ad agency specializing in the trade side of the spirits and wine business managing U.S. brand introductions for products categories including Pisco, Singani, Rum, Vodka, Brandy, Tequila, Whisk(e)y and vodka. I've just published a new book titled How to Get U.S. Market-Ready. I wrote the book as a primer f
  3. Looking for feedback from Virginia distilleries. Since Virginia owns us lock stock and barrel for distribution in VA, what has been your experience with distributors for out of state distribution? Any words of wisdom?
  4. Hi all, We are just starting up in Ohio. Ohio allows little guys to do sales and self distribution. Any comments you might have on how/when to approach a bar owner/manager or liquor store owner/manager would be greatly appreciated. I’m looking for do’s and don’ts. Cheers
  5. Hi all. We are gathering interest for a seminar this Summer. Please have a look and let us know if you're interested: http://cardinalspirits.com/business-of-distilling We've been in business for 2 years, after 3 years of planning. During an intensive 3-day seminar we will open our financial records to you. We will skip theory and dive into actual numbers. We will cover startup costs, fundraising failures and successes, tasting room financials, distribution financials, equipment costs, build-out costs, marketing costs, labor costs, and actual revenue. We firmly believe
  6. Hey All! We're working on our First ADA distributor contract. An ADA in Michigan is an Authorized Distribution Agent. They are the only people we can sell to and use to distribute our product. This particular ADA also functions as a broker and helps sell / promote the product. That is while you'll see those numbers split out. As we navigate this, we'd love some feedback and are willing to share some numbers to benefit the whole. As an ADA -Michigan’s term for an Authorized Distribution Agent ie.. Distributor Delivery Charge $10.00 per case ($7.50
  7. Base on distributor margins - Is the general markup your seeing before or after laid in costs? Example - Distributor requires a 30% margin. - retailer marks up 40 points. Mfg Wholesale = $10.00 - Wholesaler marks up 43%, (30% margin) = $14.30 - Retailer marks up 40% (29% margin) = $20.02 or $19.99 shelf price or Mfg Wholesale = $10.00 - Wholesaler adds .75 laid in costs marks up 43%, (30% margin) = $15.37 - Retailer marks up 40% (29% margin) = $21.52 shelf price. What's the bottom your seeing a distributor willing to go on a minimum margin or per case price af
  8. We were discussing a hypothetical situation today and I thought I would throw it out here to get everybody else's thoughts. We were wondering if a situation arose in which you purchased a finished product through a domestic company that originated in a foreign country, would it fall into column C or D of part IV on the production report? For example: Lets say a distillery was going out of business. They had imported some Russian vodka to sell and you wanted to purchase their remaining stock to sell it. I a wondering how this transaction would need to look in the eyes of the TTB. Is colu
  9. Hey All, We are estimating the shipping costs for our COGS. We have heard prices of anywhere between $5 a case to $15 a case and up (assuming 6 bottle cases). We are a destination-based tasting room distillery and will likely be focusing most of our sales within the county and state for the first several years. We are targeting a small to medium scale distributor in a non-control state. Does anyone have any estimates that they would care to share with us? Thanks.
  10. Spoke to a few distributors out of state and getting some surprising responses. 60 day terms? really, in our home state we are Net 30 and very happy with our partner. Is this normal for sales outside of your home state?
  11. Hi there, I'm setting up shop in BC, Canada and am wondering if anyone has any experience in selling their product in the province without the government liquor stores. As a craft distillery we will be barred from selling through the government controlled stores but I'm having trouble finding information on private provincial distributors. Do you self distribute? -Dave
  12. What are some important questions I should be asking a potential wholesaler? Thanks in advance for any help. - Tim
  13. After digging into many posts related to start ups, production, volume, sales, etc., I cannot locate any data - anecdotal OK - related to the amount of production / distribution (whether self or through distributor) / tasting room sales, etc. that a start up distillery had in Y1 and a comparison of same to Y2 or Y3. I'm not talking revenue - just cases (or bottles/barrels put up if applicable). I'm close to receiving approval on a loan for a small downtown (town=6000 people) Main Street location distillery and tasting room in (touristy) CO. I plan to produce vodka and two liqueurs and have
  14. Any recommendations for distributors in Florida, New York, or Louisiana? I'm looking for small boutique distributors, but if there are any of any size in those areas that you have enjoyed working with, please let me know. Thank you.
  15. Hey guys, We've been approached by a few people looking to import some of our products. I think that I understand the process from a legal standpoint regarding labeling and such, but I'm a bit confused on the physical act of getting it there.. Does anybody have experience in physically exporting a product to any country? Does the product for export need to be shipped from a bonded warehouse or can you ship it from your front door? Thanks, any advice/comments are welcome! NAB

  18. Hello Everyone! I've registered with ADI to better understand the craft distilling movement, which I strongly support and hope to advance through my position as Spirits Category Manager for Burke Distributing, located just outside of Boston MA. While I have never distilled myself, I have done just about everything else in this crazy business we find ourselves in. Almost 10 years ago now, I began researching cachaca, a Brazilian cane spirit, which I eventually took into national distribution. Along the way I dealt with hiring and firing distributors, doing my own PR, building websites and m
  19. License to Swill: D.C.’s Unique Booze Laws Allow a Way Around the Middleman. Guess Who Isn’t Happy? http://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/blogs/youngandhungry/2013/08/07/license-to-swill-d-c-s-unique-booze-laws-allow-a-way-around-the-middleman-guess-who-isnt-happy/ One thing the (very good) article doesn't mention is that many DC licensed wholesalers are actually MD/VA wholesalers. The Bud Light trucks roll in with Maryland plates.
  20. Ok, I'm confused and seek wisdom. Where specifically does it say that I cannot have my manufacturing in one space and my tasting room and retail sales in another space across town? I am asking because I have seen this same set-up in two other distilleries and several wineries. I was under the impression that sales of bottles was only permitted in the same building where the product is made. Can anyone shed some light on this?
  21. Hi Everyone, My name is Maxamillion Mustang from London England, but everyone calls me Max, I run and work for Ultima Wholesale International in London involved in alcohol spirits distribution sales of a few exclusive brands we have. I was told by an associate from Manifest Sales to join this forum as it would help me understand the US and Canadian market, more importantly make new friends and contacts. I hope to meet and get along with everyone in the spirits business from producers, engineers to distributors and buyers alike, I also plan to do a road trip in America and Canada visiting peo
  22. We are seeking whisky, bourbon distilleries to partner with for distribution into Asia. Our first port of call will be Macau where we currently hold a spirits importer's license and have a newly established distribution network into casino hotels. We can be contacted at macauspirits@yahoo.com

  24. Hey Gang, I've been given a great opportunity to start digging into the WI market for possible distribution. This is a big chance for me to show off, so naturally I turn to my favorite resource: YOU. I am beginning my research elsewhere on the various distributors in WI, but as a small supplier I am looking to find the right fit (as always). Any thoughts, preferences and or horror stories from the WI area that can better help me on my search? Any thoughts are greatly appreciated. -Harrison
