Bulk Wine

That's a good price for a resale wine, but a bit spendy for a distiller.  

The way we look at it, wine is over 85% water, and we have to remove that water.  

At an optimistic 14% abv, and assuming 75% recovery (loss to usual spillage, heads & tails), that translates to between ~$4.75 and ~$6.50 per 750ml bottle at 40% abv.  At 12% it goes up over $7 a bottle.  Add in cost of glass, labels, closures, labor and utilities and that's an expensive product.
