Go green, or don't go! Wondering what we've been up to? Finalized the design and specifications for our cooling water recirculating chiller. Not very exciting? It is when you consider that the vast majority of of craft distilleries just run thousands of gallons of cooling water down the drain per day. We at NWD are sensitive to and supportive of our unique water situation here in Ogden Valley. Therefore, yes, it is exciting to be able to report that we have a cooling water solution that recirculates 100% of our cooling water, sending zero down the drain. It is the little things (or in this case, a big thing in the form of a water chiller) that makes all the difference. Plus it is made in the USA (http://www.chillking.com/chillers.php). These are the details that take time, but are critical to being a good steward of the Valley's resources.
Wondering about our small delay in opening? We have good news! Due to a snag in moving into an existing building, we've been afforded the opportunity to build a custom purpose-built factory from the ground up! This will enable us to realize our physical and aesthetic goals in such a way that emphasizes the unique landscape and surroundings and ultimately results in a facility worthy of the New World vision.
During this delay, we have finalized equipment decisions, and have further refined our product design from recipe to bottle.
Stay tuned for updates!
