Please note:

All around nice guy, don dimonte has crafted a corn/sugar spirit crafted from local sourced yellow dent corn. distilled in a modern multi-purpose still(pot with column attached) up to around 76%, then it has been watered down to a strength of 65% for barrel entry.

Due to a trial and error process, don and his family are still trying to perfect their process, but he has informed me that he expects to deliver an annual yield of 8600 litres per annum and is hopefull to produce 36L per day.
