Craft Spirit Distillery, Storage and Bottling Line
The distillery features a complete three pot distillation system consisting of two 600 gallon and one 900 gallon copper pot stills. The system is fully integrated and supported by mash cookers, fermenters, boilers, chillers and ancillary tanks for making a full variety of distilled spirits from vodka, rum, gin, bourbon or rye whiskey. Supporting the production arm is a fully equipped laboratory which includes all equipment necessary to support the day to day operation of the distillation and bottling process and most importantly new product development, quality control and experimentation (Download complete equipment list here or view the list here.)
The main building boasts two high quality bottling lines. The first will fill sizes (bottle shape specific) from 50ml to 1.5 liters and offers rare and expansive process and packaging possibilities. The second line will fill from 100ml to 3.0 liters. The lines are suitable for all distilled spirits, wine and a full range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Also situated are fully automated capping and labeling machines. The main operations floor consists of a large refrigeration / freezer unit and has a capacity of 40,000 gallons of bulk storage by 5 stainless steel tanks.
There is an independent structure at the front of the property which is enclosed and secure, housing a fresh water well. The facility boasts a state of the art reverse osmosis system with an all application specific pre filtration equipment, capable of producing 36 gallons per minute,
(50,000 gallons per day) of high quality water. The monthly water bill is based upon the city water supply to the sinks and toilets as is the sewer bill. NOT the well water. All equipment is both serviced and maintained. This really is a true “Turn Key” operation.
