Greetings From Ontario Canada

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I have been lurking the forums for months now and have been mining the forums and ADI site for information to help in starting my distillery. So I figure it's time to say hello...Hi, my name is Don DiMonte from Maple, Ontario, Canada.

We have named our distillery Last Straw Distillery, we have just last week submitted our Federal excise application and next week, we will be submitting our provincial manufacturing application.

We hope to be distilling by August or September of 2014, barring any hiccups in the application process. We will be located on a 98 acre family owned farm in Hillsburgh, Ontario in a 5000 square foot shop.

We have purchased an iStill 250, with an icatalyst and a 220v converter from Odin to start with. We have also bought 2 275 gallon polyethylene totes, for storage and fermentation and a 55 gallon mash tun from distillery-equipment.com. I am in the process of ordering a wenesco hot plate for barrels.

We plan to make single malt whisky and possibly rum to start with. Once we upgrade to be able to mash with grain in, I would like to create a bourbon style whisky.

We are trying to start this distillery without external financing, though it looks like to do so, will keep us quite small for some time to come.

Thanks for all of the information from far too many people to name.

Welcome, Don!

I have a close friend in Vaughan that I visit on a regular basis! I'll be up to visit and taste your tipple once you get going!
