We build stills that use duty paid neutral spirit as the base (removing the need for a bonded warehouse). Our brewery and distillery solutions enable spirit production from scratch.
We give clients as much time and support as they need to feel comfortable operating their equipment and producing their chosen spirit. Training begins ahead of installation and only stops when the client no longer needs our help. Our phones are on 7 days a week. We are happy to take calls and offer advice at any time.
Matt Servini is known across the global drinks industry for his ability to develop outstanding recipes. Many are award winning. He works with clients to train them how to create their own recipes. Or he can develop a finished recipe for the client to own.
Obtaining relevant licenses from HMRC and local government can be the most onerous part of setting up a distillery. We work closely with clients, to ensure they have all the relevant licenses to start production legally and that compliance procedures are in place. License support services include Compounders & Rectifiers, AWRS, WOWGR, Premises and Personal.
Safety is a top priority for CDB hence our stills have been installed in restrictive environments. These include airports and cruise ships. We provide a Standard Operating Procedure with every piece of equipment. We also develop bespoke risk assessments / other health and safety documentation in line with the requirements of your business.
Great products don’t sell themselves. How they look is as important as how they taste. CDB can support on all elements of the marketing mix including label design, packaging suppliers, ecommerce websites, social media, PR and advertising. We’re proud to have worked with clients on multi-award winning spirits in a number of categories and countries.
We are happy to work with individuals and businesses on a project basis. All our consultancy services can be purchased in isolation, at a set project fee or on a day rate. If you need any support in relation to making your own spirits, we would be delighted to talk to you.
