Before embarking on the challenging journey of creating your own spirit brand and distillery, there are two simple initial steps that everyone must take.
Firstly, understand your preferences.
Set a goal to develop a spirit that you genuinely enjoy and a brand that fills you with pride. Begin by discussing your ideas with friends and family, sharing what kind of spirits and flavors you are truly passionate about. When you create something you are genuinely enthusiastic about, building the brand becomes much easier.
Next, indulge yourself with a drink! Of course, do so responsibly! Furthermore, become familiar with the brewing landscape by sampling and exploring the products of other distilleries in the market segment. Taste the offerings of established market leaders as well as those of emerging craft brands. Instead of only enjoying a bottle with friends, visit local bars during less busy periods and ask the staff about their personal favorites and the preferences of their customers. This type of market research is typically conducted by multinational corporations at great expense. However, remember that they require such information to appease corporate accountants and gatekeepers. You, on the other hand, merely need to identify opportunities.
Finally, this planning step is the most crucial one. After deciding on your passion, examining existing offerings, and evaluating their strengths and weaknesses, this is the point where most people halt their progress.
