About

Hello my name is Dale and I am from a small village in Sterling MI, near the rifle river where many people come to canoe and camp for the summer.  I began a few years back making some copper stills, and trees for something to do on the side when I am away for work. Many were interested and so I began to do a art show here and there when time allowed. The trees are made of copper, brass and stainless steel as well and mounted on drift wood found in the river near my home.  The stills are made of copper and are very unique.

I have been working on expanding from my old cow barn to a more controlled environment to craft the items I sell.  I have been creating copper metal art for a distributor of beer and wine and craft supplies. The handcrafted copper stills I make are a great novelty piece that brings back the nostalgia years and make fantastic conversation pieces in living rooms, restaurants and anywhere people gather.  We are currently constructing a building to make and show my crafts as well as an operational distillery.  I have been building the business little by little and need funding to complete the building, where I can have a better working environment.  

Risks and challenges

Going forward with this project is a work in progress as any! It takes proper permitting, planning, and following state guidelines and building codes. Some of the great risks are the seasonal weather during construction, although following a set schedule, will help with getting our project up and going in no time. Knowing that the first few years of operation will be a great challenge for a newly opened distillery. Having a better working environment will help me in creating my copper creations and opening an operational distillery.
