Summer may be fading but the tempo is not!

5 months ago

Hey there folks, time for our weekly update. It seems that people are really embracing the opportunity to get out of the house and enjoy everything the Gorge has to offer. Last weekend was another record breaking weekend for us in our tasting room, and we were literally swamped all weekend long! I'm including a few shots of happy customers that I was able to take when we had a break in the action. You might notice from some of these photos that we have also released our next seasonal cordial, our super popular Sweet 45 Cherry Cordial. We look forward to seeing you all in the tasting room here soon as well!

Hey there guys,

We have been having a lot of fun and selling a lot of spirits this summer and I thought I would share. We just finished up at our latest event at the Craft Beer and Wine Festival of Vancouver and it was a huge success! Sherrie and Rusty were amazing as always and we are very grateful. We were able to get our products out in front of local consumers and industry professionals and I am told we were a huge hit. We brought down our old 1950 Pickup and our old Moonshiner's still and people couldn't get enough. A big thank you to everyone who came down to visit us and the support we receive all year long. Enjoy the photos!

So much progress!

6 months ago

Hey there Skunk friends, just a quick update for you!

We have been super busy here and making tons of progress, and I wanted to share a couple of exciting announcements. First and foremost I am excited to announce that we are now able to distribute to California! We have recently picked up a California distributor and have other locales in progress. I expect to make announcements in the next couple updates regarding our progress on that front. Also, we are in the process of blending our next and most sought after seasonal cordial "Sweet 45 Cherry Cordial"  We have a lot to blend so it will be a few weeks before it's available but we will let everyone know when it's ready!

Our sales nearly doubled in 2020 despite COVID. Check out a few other exciting developments!

7 months ago


Hey there folks,

I wanted to give all of you investors an update about our progress as a company. As many of you know our first round of crowdfunding with StartEngine started just before Christmas 2019 and ended in August last year. We had tremendous success with that first round and we thank you all for supporting us. As you all know the global pandemic presented us with some major challenges and forced us to make a few changes to our plans. That being said, we are still right here going strong and now proceeding with our plans that we had to put on hold. 

So what have we done so far and where are we headed? StartEngine raised funds are issued to us as dispersals over the course of the campaign which in this case lasted until late summer.  As soon as we received our first disbursements we immediately set about working on things that would reduce our cost of goods and paying down our loans.

The first step was sourcing and procuring the capital equipment necessary to increase our brew-house production output and modernize our chilling system. We were lucky enough to capitalize on several auctions that allowed us to purchase what we needed at a substantial savings. Once we received the needed equipment we set about hooking things up!  We are now capable of producing twice the amount of mash from our brew system, and for cooling we are now fully free of city water and recycle our water through a cooling tower and store recycled water in a tank outside of the distillery. It took us a bit to get the plumbing worked out since this is a complex system but we have it all running very nicely now and have seen a substantial reduction in our cost of goods and an increase in our production speed.

We then hired the necessary consultants to go through our processes in all areas to help us streamline and improve our output capacity, increase sales, secure distribution and work out our marketing. We also hired distillery personnel to help out with production and sales people to get our product out into the broader markets. Time to move beyond the tasting room and really push our spirits out in the world!  

So about this time is when COVID really reared it's ugly head. The entire west coast was right on the leading edge of the pandemic quarantine shut downs. Bars and restaurants closed, and we had even had to close our tasting room to anything but bottle sales. We took a hard look at the situation and after trying to press on with our plans as written as long as we could we decided to regroup and make some tactical decisions. 

To start with we saw a need for hand sanitizer in our community and began producing that as fast as we could. We were able to supply local police, fire, medical clinics and county government hundreds of gallons of sanitizer. We set about building an online store (which is an ongoing project) and finding new ways to sell the product we were producing.  Despite COVID we were able to increase our sales substantially last year from $ 114,811 in 2019 to $217,646 in 2020! Maybe not as much as we had anticipated, but by a nice sum either way. With your help we were able to not only survive the pandemic but thrive!

As the summer wore on and we realized COVID was here to stay we were forced to shut down production for several months, but we had a nice inventory held back and we still did ok! We used it as an opportunity to go through the entire distillery, do some hard core cleaning and re-organizing and nearly all of the heavy maintenance we needed completed.  Also, this was at the lead into the New Year and as folks in the industry will tell you, once New Years has passed alcohol sales drop substantially until spring.  

As if on cue though, once the warm weather hit, the COVID restrictions began to lift and all of the sudden we were absolutely overwhelmed! We opted to start this second round of crowdfunding with our brand shiny new equipment and people and are ready to proceed with the second phase of the plan! We feel like we are perfectly positioned as the company re-opens to conquer!
