Below are some frequently asked questions we get about private label .
Q:What kind of liquor do you make?
A: We make whiskey, rum, vodka, and gin.
Q:Do you have a catalog of liquors that I can choose from?
A: We do not have a "catalog", we will work with you to create your own unique "formula" for your product.
Q: I have my own recipe, with products I buy from the store , do I still need to get approval from the TTB if the ingredients are already consumer ready?
A: Yes , every unique recipe has to go through the TTB approval process. There are some pre-approved formulas with the TTB , however those are basic recipes. For example "Corn Whiskey" is made with Corn and water, that is the authentic formula for whiskey, no approval needed. If you want to make a Coconut Whiskey, that is not an approved formula , it is your own recipe and we have to submit it.
Q: I don't want to give you too much information because I want to protect my idea. How do I know you won't steal my recipe and my ideas?
A: We know that your recipes are like your babies. We will be happy to sign any confidentiality agreements that you like. Also every order placed will be with a signed contract by both parties. We have to protect ourselves too, although this is a fun business, this is also how we make a living. Please understand that we may require some money down on certain projects .
Q: How much money do I need to get started?
A: We have a basic package starting at $1400. This includes:
Please note that this package DOES NOT include UNLIMITED HOURS OF COMMUNICATION WITH THE CLIENT. We understand that you want your product to be perfect and we do too! But please understand that we have a process and we have other clients that we are working with that we want to dedicate time to. Every project is treated as if it was OUR OWN baby. So please be mindful of our time as we will of yours.
Q: How long will the whole process take?
A: From the time we receive a signed contract along with 50% down payment of our agreed on price we will begin the process.
The entire process from signed contract to delivery can take up to three months. We will work as quickly as possible to get everything processed . In the meanwhile we can help you gather your strategy together for a successful launch and continued success of your product.
*****WE DO NOT IN ANYWAY GUARANTEE THAT YOUR PRODUCT WILL SELL OR BE A SUCCESS, MUCH OF THIS DEPENDS ON HOW YOU MARKET THE PRODUCT AND YOUR DISTRIBUTOR.*****
