About

My name is Brandon Henderson, I am the owner of Fenrir Spirits. I have been fascinated for the past few years by the science of making alcohol and the art of distilling it to unlock its true potential. I decided a few years ago that i wanted to start my own distillery and have been working towards that goal ever since. I recently attended Moonshine University 6 day distillers course where I learned how to run a distillery and a commercial still, and I also made many contacts in the spirits industry. I am not going to tell you the same story as every other craft distillery, Fenrir Spirits is different, we don't have some secret super amazing family recipe from my great grand parents that we want to make legal, its just us, thinking outside the box trying new things and experimenting with recipes until I find one that we love and want to share with the local community and hopefully the world. Fenrir Spirits is going to focus mainly on whiskey, however we also plan to make Gin, Absinthe as well as some specialty spirits.

Distilleries are not a cheap business to get into, even on the smaller side, were we fit, starting a small craft distillery is very capital intensive even starting with only a 500 gallon system can cost over $1,000,000 (that's not a big system). So we decided to start much smaller, we are going to purchase a 200 system. I know that doesn't sound much smaller, but what makes it so much cheaper and more practical is we are going to purchase a 100 gallon mash tun and still combo, it does the jobs of a mash tun, stripping still, and spirit still. This system will give us the monthly output of 204 proof gallons, almost half of which will be set aside for aging, so at $35 per bottle a monthly revenue of $19,250 and five 15 gallon barrels set aside for aging (that's only for the whiskey). We need all of your help to reach this lofty goal of $40,000 to help us get our whiskey to market and build a new tasting room.

Risks and challenges

We are going to start with a 100 gallon mash tun/still, and all other necessary equipment. I am going to focus on making the best tasting spirits possible, marketing as hard as I can and getting the word of mouth going. Our biggest challenge will be keeping things going while we are still unknown, we plan to have a bar on premises that way we can make cocktails and things for patrons while we await for our products to age as well as producing gin and absinthe that doesn't need aged.
Myself and a few of my family will be running the distillery to start and we will not draw any income until things take off and we are doing enough business to pay for employees. Things are not going to just be a walk in the park, getting this distillery up and running is going to take a lot of hard work and long hours and the team and myself are looking forward to the challenge!
