A second version is also organic, but with Asian based spices and chilies and will be called Mandarin Heat
Start up of a liqour brand is expensive, with licensing, lab fees, permits, distillation fees, labeling and packaging fees, attorney fees,warehouse storage fees, bottling and giveaways/promotions we are looking at $150,000 or more just to get started. That's if I go the private label route and have a microdistillery make it for me. If I make it myself it could take three years and a couple million, just to get through all the hoops, find a property, build the distillery and then go through all the above. The best bet is to go the microdistillery route, they do all the work and you pay them for the product, a lot of them will even do the marketing and help you get in with a distributor.
"Son's Hellfire Water"???
(edit; dang -- wrote that just as you posted the names you already had.)
Totally missed son's contribution to the cause.... but it was great meeting you along with so many others.
As far as donations go, i will buy a few bottles...about all i can afford lol
don't worry about that,just keep making knives.
I really really like what's happening in this thread. Son, I'd wish you success in any venture... but especially this one. :D
If you want to put up some "bottle-shaped" knives for sale....
