Premium Vodka and
For many prospective distillers vodka is the driving force behind the success of their
distilleries. Without any aging requirements its production is fast, easy and yields a pretty quick cash-flow.
Nevertheless, ambitious entrepreneurs do not want to rush in blindly and they want equipment that will help them
create a "premium" brand. Here, Bavarian Holstein can help you.
We have designed a vodka unit that will most economically bring you to the highest proof possible
at the lowest cost for you. For example, when someone says, "We would like to make 190+ proof vodka," our first response
is that it will require a minimum of about 35 bubble plates. Given the height requirements and costly equipment, many
will find this out of their budget. However, if you opt for distilling between 188 and 190 proof, which is perceivably just as
clean as a 190+ proof product, you can save a significant amount on equipment costs and even building costs, if you can get
away with shorter ceilings.
As the decision-maker, you have to decide at what
point you will pay a higher price for what may be a .1 or .2 % difference
in the product's proof. Please contact Andrea
Heffernan to learn more about your options.
All enthusiastic distillers have specific goals in mind for how
their products should taste. Most likely, you will not find a single
one who prefers a rough, fiery swallow to a delicate, tasty glide
down the throat. This is why our equipment is made with copper and
even has a patented component, Holstein's catalyzer, for which the
sole purpose is to further clean out unwanted impurities and help
create that hard-sought for smoothness. Our patented catalyzer has a maximized copper
surface area - a carefully crafted design that no other manufacturer can imitate.
At the same time, this surface area is easily cleaned - a detail not to be overlooked.
With proper detergent cleaning, the entire copper surface area can be reactivated,
allowing distillers to utilize every square inch. Copper packing is not comparable because
water and detergents cannot have contact with all the crevices and crumpled areas. This
leads to a diminished use of the copper inside and will create inconsistencies in your spirit.
Holstein's design assures you that your products will have consistency - a key component to
your distillery's success.
Many of you who are close to purchasing your distillery equipment are keenly aware
of the EUR/USD exchange rate. Since our equipment is manufactured in Germany and
Hungary, our prices are quoted in Euros. As the Euro gets stronger, your dollar price
goes up, making the decision to buy even more difficult. At Holstein, we would like
to alleviate some of this for you and are working on an arrangement with both Holstein
and Bavarian Brewery Technologies to help keep your dollar price down.
