For those of us old enough to remember the days before there were 8,000 channels on cable TV or before there was any cable TV, there was a show on one of our local stations called “Hee Haw”. One of their regular skits was the good news/ bad news skit so in that tradition, I give you Vivacity Spirits news:

The good news is: Our first batch of rum is ready—Yay!

The bad news is: We don’t have the correct filtering device yet—Oops!

The good news is: We know which one we want and it ships quickly—Yay!

The bad news is: We also found a mistake on our label—Excuse me???

The good news is: We ordered new labels and they are on their way—Whew!

The bad news is: We missed our expected release date and we ran out of coffee—Aargh!!

The good news is: The new labels, the filter and coffee arrived. We start filling bottles—At last.

The bad news is: Our new filter doesn’t work so well using a gravity feed. Stop bottling—Darn!

The good news is: With a little ingenuity, it is a simple fix. Start bottling—Dodged a bullet.

The bad news is: By sheer luck, we find another mistake on the label. STOP bottling!!—CR*P!

The good news is: We can use part of the original labels to fix the problem. Start bottling!--Yay!

The bad news is: We already bottles and boxed 50 cases of the rum—Hrmm.

The good news is: There was enough rum left in the tank to send a full palate to the OLCC and it is now for sale—Oh Yeah!

The bad news is: it’s not in the warehouse yet.

The good news is: I know a guy with a truck and you can purchase it at our tasting room--Yehaw!

The bad and news is: It will take a week or two to get it into your local liquor store so come by  and visit us and buy your bottle today—Timing is everything!

The good news is: Today, 9-06-2014, our tasting room is open for business—Oh thank goodness!

Vivacity Spirits traditional rum is a limited run for only $29.00.  When it’s gone it’s gone (until another batch is ready).

Through adversity character is developed.

If it was easy, anybody could do it.

When you do something you love, you will never work a day in your life.

I live at the distillery, I have never put in so much time on anything, I love what we do and I wouldn't have it any other way.
