The one question we get on a daily basis is "What is Micro-Distilling"? Micro-Distilling refers to the amount of spirits a distillery can produce in one year. In this case its 50,000 proof gallons a year. Compare this to the top Rum distilleries that average 16.8 million cases a year. They actually spill more than we can make. So, basically we are a small two man operation. The beauty of a small operation is that every single step of the process is personally monitored by our head distiller.
We are a batch process plant, which simply means we run one batch at a time. We carefully select which fermentation wash gets transferred to our column still. We then concentrate solely on that one batch until its finished. This allows our master distiller to make the critical process cuts that make up our unique taste profile. At every step of this process we take samples of our spirits, checking for smell, taste and color. Because we use the batch process we are able to discard the foreshots, tails and make very strict heads cuts. Most big distilleries run whats called a continuous distillation process. This is where they continuously throw new fermentations into their huge 5-story column stills. Never stopping, never slowing down, they run 24/7, seven days a week. They rely on machinery to make process cuts and make flavor profile decisions. We feel this shows itself in the final product and we would never risk product over production.
