THE CRAFT DISTILLING BUSINESS: Quality v. Quantity:
You see, this is the situation in the marketplace. “Artisan” is a loose term as is Craft when one can buy the list of products available in an email I received today. (PDF Below)
We could easily buy bulk Bourbon, stick it in a used barrel for 1-3 months and then bottle and release it as a “craft spirit” aged and bottled by K J Wood…
We could also jump straight to market with several other products by simply blending and rectifying from bulk…
Quality, Artisan, and above all Craft takes a certain patience and time. We hope to fill all of those buckets before we fill a single bottle.
K John Wood
