How do I Commercially Distill in South Africa?

This is the question we will try to answer through our articles in this section. The quickest way to get that answer of course is to attend our B1 - Craft Distilling Business Course, but through these articles we will try and answer the most common questions we receive.

In the B1 - Craft Distilling Business Course however, we discuss the applicable Legislation (both governing Licensing and Operations, as well as the actual Spirit Products produced). We look at the Licensing and Product Approval Process, SARS Registrations, the roles of the Provincial Liquor Board, Department of Agriculture (DAFF), the National Liquor Authority (NLA), and of course the South African Revenue Service (SARS). We look at Distillery Layouts and Designs, the Technical Equipment needed, Case Studies of Distilleries we have already set up, Financial Feasibility Studies, Full 3, 5 and 8 year Cash Flow Analysis, as well as a complete Business Plan Template.

Can I make money with a Commercial Craft Distillery?

An important question to be sure, and not one people like to admit to asking themselves. Yes, Craft Distilling and Craft Spirits is (or should be) about the Craft, the Art, the Passion, the Dream. But Dreams don't put a roof over my head or food on my table. There is no point pursuing something which is not going to be profitable. So we will explore aspects like supply, marketing techniques, profitability indicators, diversified and peripheral income streams, Phased or Staged Operational Expansion, Focused Product Development and Marketing Techniques, and much more.

There is NO upside for us as a company to sell equipment to Crafters who fail. It is in our absolute interest to ensure the success of each of our clients, as there success helps us to grow, so we need to make sure that you know what you are letting yourself in for if you choose to join this industry.
