Custom Distillation

Bulk Spirits

We offer competitive rates for custom distillation for wineries.  Bring us your wine that you would like distilled into Brandy and we will do the rest. Everything is run on our incredible Prulho cognac still resulting in a premium spirit for you to enjoy.

Rates & Options:

First Pass/Stripping Run: $1000 per run (up to 600 gallons)

This is the first pass through the still and is meant to strip out the alcohol from the wine without making "cuts".  Each run can be up to 600 gallons, and we charge per run. Expect a yield of about 25% of your beginning amount.

Second Pass/Finishing Run: $750 per run (up to 600 gallons)

This is the second pass through the still and is meant as a finishing run.  During this run we will take cuts and separate out the heads, hearts, and tails.  Typically you can combine about 4 stripping runs into one finishing run.

We also offer bulk Brandy produced from premium California wine grapes.  These Brandies are the pure heart cut from a double distillation on our Prulho cognac still.

Unaged California Grape Brandy

$30/proof gallon (150 proof)

Unaged Moscato Grape Brandy

$35/proof gallon (150 proof)
