- Well, as we now have 33 members I thought it might be an ideal time for
some introductions. Then it occurred to me that as I am the moderator
maybe I should begin.
Well I am 50 years old and live in Auckland New Zealand. I import and
manufacture equipment and ingredients for the home distillation industry.
I have a wife and no children. I employ one part time worker and we are on
the lookout for bigger premises.
I am a collector of alcohol related things like full beer bottles and cans
(about 200) from New Zealand and overseas. Also full miniature spirit,
liqueur (cordial in the USA), and wine bottles ( over 650). Then there is
the shooter and shot glass collection of about 50 items.
My interest in alcohol extends more towards the theory side than the
practical, drinking, side. I enjoy the history and stories (true and
fables) relating to alcohol. I am in the process of adding some of these
to my website. Cocktails is another interest and I conduct classes on the
subject from time to time.
I got this list underway because, while surfing the net, I found there was
not a lot of good down to earth basic information on distilling of alcohol
on a non commercial basis. The idea of knowledgde being shared by people
with practical experience seemed like good approach, so here we are.
Well what more can I say, that is me.
