Swallowtail has been producing vodka for the last 2 years. November, 2016 marks the release of our two new gins as well as the grand opening of our new production facility and the start of our whiskey distillations and launch the Ninkasi collaboration project. Ninkasi is being gracious enough to let us make the whiskey from their beer, but don't be confused. This is a Swallowtail Whiskey. We still have to buy the beer from Ninkasi and turn it into an aged whiskey.
It has been quite a journey to get to this point and now we need your help to launch our whiskey production. Kevin Barrett started this operation on a shoe-string budget. Now he and his partners are expanding operations. With the expense of purchasing new stills, bottling equipment, facility build-out and new staff things have gotten very tight financially so in order to get the whiskies started and into barrels we need your help. We want you to be just as much a part of enjoying the process as the product and we welcome your input.
The funds raised from this project will go towards the purchase of oak whiskey barrels, whiskey mash from Ninkasi, installation of necessary equipment and putting on some amazing release parties with great drinks, food and entertainment.
If you love craft spirits and want to be a part of the growth of our company please support us in whatever way you can.
Risks and challenges
We have tried very hard to make sure that we are not stretching ourselves too thinly by offering rewards that we can make good on. We have all the mechanisms in place and are looking forward to bringing you some amazing products.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
