VICTORIA, March 27, 2018 /CNW/ - Victoria Caledonian Distillery & Brewery (Vic. Caledonian) is pleased to announce the launch N. America's first combined spirts-beer CMO service at the American Distilling Institute (ADI) Craft Spirits Conference.
Graeme Macaloney, President, Vic. Caledonian said: "With the explosion in craft spirts and continued strong growth in craft beer, there is a real need for contact services tohelp new and aspiring distillers & brewers. We offer hands-on training, design and production of their 'own-label' product for their use in fund-raising or early opening of their visitor center, and early liquor store sales while they build their own facility and mature product. Our hands-on training encompasses brewing, distilling, maturation, equipment selection, regulatory, product costing, etc.With one of N. America's largest single malt whiskey distilleries we also offer large volume private label spirits and craft beer production".
Bill Owens, President, ADI said "From my deep knowledge of N.American craft distilling, it is clear there is an unmet need for the services being offered by the Vic Caledonian. Not available anywhere else is their breadth and depth of whiskey distilling and maturation expertise embodied by 3rd generation ex-DIAGEO Master Distiller Mike Nicolson (18 distilleries from Lagavulin to Glenkinchie), the late-great Dr. Jim Swan's maturation expertise that led Kavalan to the 2015 world's best whiskey after just 4 years, and Whisky Maker Dr. Graeme Macaloney whose 1 year old spirit has already scored a remarkable 87 points."
