|Opened a gin distillery|
Let's start with how you see the concept of creating a brand by yourself. What flavor characteristics do you like in gin? How many SKUs will you have? What will your bottle look like? What style will your label look like? Do you have a tasting room? How will you go beyond your actual existence to market yourself?
Once you start putting some of your thoughts on paper, you can move on to operating costs and capital expenditures. I assume that you need to produce enough finished spirits for sale to at least cover your operating costs, and hope to slowly recover capital expenditures. To do this, you need to specify a price for the finished spirits, and then determine how many bottles you need to sell in a month to cover your monthly expenses. Pretty basic, right?
But the goal here is not to reduce and adjust the size of your commercial gin distillation equipment to produce a finished spirit that is enough to meet the monthly nuts, right? The goal is to have the ability to scale up with the development of the business.
You can do this by adding more shifts. But this always means higher labor costs, thereby weakening your net profit. Therefore, if your goal is to make money, it is very important to adjust your commercial gin distillation equipment to make the best use of economies of scale.
Let's continue the interesting thing-making gin. There seem to be two modes of gin production:
The winery produces the neutral spirits needed as the basis for the gin recipe.
The brewery purchases neutral spirits in advance, and only re-distills them, so that the alcohol vapor is extracted through botanicals.
Without the right tools, the former can be very time-consuming-that is, a very tall distillation column. Although the distiller can be used to make pure spirits, it takes much more time than a suitable column.
The latter has attracted criticism from spirits purists and industry professionals. In the final analysis, the most important thing is not to be deceptive to the production method and, of course, to bottle high-quality finished products that are worth selling. If it tastes good and value for money, then this is really important to consumers.
When it comes to flavor profiles, one problem with producing reliable and consistent finished products year after year is that your plant supplier may source from different locations that may experience completely different weather patterns. It is conceivable that temperature, rainfall and soil composition will have different effects on a single plant. In addition, dry and fresh botanicals also produce different benefits. So how do we create a configuration file that is reliably consistent year after year? Contrary to all our freshly picked botanicals last month, how do we fill the gin basket with dried botanicals this month because this is all the botanicals available?
One method is to make only a single batch of botanicals instead of combining all botanicals into one basket. Distill each plant individually and build a large inventory for each plant. Then blend each render separately according to the specific required profile. In addition, approximately 20% of each bulk distillate is mixed with the next batch to ensure a more uniform consistency. This will help manage seasonal changes in botanicals. This method provides a technique in which the creation of a flavor profile can be likened to mixing paint colors according to precise recipes.
