As a bottling crew member you will receive 20% off all spirits and merchandise for the day, snacks, and Journeyman Distillery crafted cocktails. It’s a fun way to meet the distillers and have hands on experience with our grain to glass production.
We limit the bottling parties to 10 people per shift, so reserve your space ASAP when you receive an invitation email from Journeyman Distillery.
The bottling starts when our distilling and aging process has ended. The first stage is to use our four prong bottle system to transfer the spirits from the carboy, where the spirit was stored or relocated to from our oak barrels, into 750ml glass bottles. Each bottle is then hand corked and taped around the seal of the cork. The taping process is used, because each bottle is then hand dipped in wax. The tape ensures our consumers will be able to easily break the wax seal on all of our bottled spirits. After the wax has had time to dry, the bottle is passed on to be labeled. Each bottle is labeled, on the front and back of the bottle, with a unique custom design for each different spirit. The back of the bottle will then be marked with the distilled batch number and the number of the bottle from that batch. The final stage in the process is to package the bottles. Each bottle is put into six pack boxes. The boxes are then sealed with a custom marked Journeyman Distillery box tape. After the boxes are sealed they are marked, by hand using a sharpie marker, with the product that has been packaged inside. Once marked, each box is put onto a pallet that is filled and then wrapped with saran wrap ready to be distributed.
We appreciate your support of the Distillery and hope to bottle with you soon!
