So what have we been doing lately? A whole lot of mashing and distilling of course! As a farm craft distillery, we cannot purchase neutral grain spirits and turn that into vodka. Instead, we have to make our own NGS first, and then turn that into our handcrafted vodka. That means many stripping runs of the still, followed by spirit runs to produce the 190 Proof NGS that will be the backbone of our craft distilled vodka.
In addition to mashing and distilling, Sarah has successfully navigated her way to our first COLA – Certificate of Label Approval – the federal approval necessary for each label, and then obtained our State approval for the same label.
Sarah has also captained the bottle selection effort. Our first bottle delivery is due within the week, and we are very excited! I am sure there will be pictures of the delivery event on Facebook when it happens.
The adventure continues.
