    And what startup cost are we talking about?

    Brandy is an all organic, potato based alcohol, using Native American spices and chilies, molasses and cane sugar, calling it Native Heat.
    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.

    thanks, we'll see where it takes us, I have a few interested parties and Have developed a group of bar and restaurants here in town who want it, once it's ready. So, there is a demand it's just actually getting started.
