Finding the Right Shell
Sometimes you have to start over...
Shaun Baker on May 18, 2019
So, by now, many are wondering why our products aren’t yet to market. Well in recent months, we’ve been working hard to get our business operational to support craft spirits in Houston. We’ve procured our equipment, designed our bottles, participated in training courses for recipe development, etc. All of this is needed, but it means nothing without a location to manufacture. Unfortunately, we’ve run into several obstacles in securing a location. A guiding principle of ours in transparency, so we’d like to share with you some of the struggles.
The Start of a Journey

Why gin? After growing up in the Northeast where the traditional drink was a Manhattan for my family, I moved south. Very south. Somehow someone gave me a Tom Collins on a hot summer day…it was refreshing, I almost forgot how much I was sweating. After a few iteration, I discovered the traditional Gin and Tonic. It was the beginning of a love affair.

From Somm to Starting a Distillery

I’m a very patient person. Sean reminds me of this often.
Our liquor cabinet is overflowing with a wide range of gin, vodka, and whiskey, from local varieties to international flair. We have a library of books at our house; a full shelf is dedicated to the history and science behind spirits. The kegerator lives in the mud room, and our garage houses an assortment of home brew supplies. This is all Sean’s doing – and I’m OK with it.
What does Distilled By Actualy Mean?

Michelle is very patient with me.
An alert from our bank just told her that someone spent $77 on our debit card. Must be Sean. Must be Spec’s. Anything for that 5% discount!
This is a routine occurrence and, as such, there’s a cacophony of bottles in my liquor cabinet.
