I became a customer of 'Your Shout' in 1996 when I was given a still for my birthday. It didn't take me long to discover what a fabulous hobby home distilling can be. Gone were the days of wondering how I could afford to replace that empty bourbon bottle my mates had left me with and the tide was going out in my wife's Baileys bottle. It cost me around $9 to fill the bourbon bottle and about $15 to keep the missus happy. How wonderful to have a hobby that I was proud to share with friends and family and to be able to make something that everyone enjoyed. It certainly helped cut the cost of hosting a party and took the guesswork out of many Christmas presents, I now knew for certain what people liked.
In October 2002 I was fortunate to be able to combine hobby and career when I purchased 'Your Shout, Linwood', ( which is now regarded by many as the best beer brewing, wine making and distilling supply store with friendly, helpful service and the biggest range of products in NZ )
Since then I have discovered that home brewed beer really does taste good and the varieties available are amazing. Suffice it to say that it will be a long while before I will be able to say with certainty just which beer is my favourite. Although at a cost of around 50c per pint, I have a feeling that I'll like them all.
Winemaking is another activity I have recently got into. Using the wine kits from Winexpert in Canada, I havefound that it is easy to produce a bottle of red wine (of the quality that you would happily pay $25 at the liquor store) for only $5 and a fabulous white for only $3.50 per bottle.
Well, that's enough prattling on from me, have a wander round this website and see if there is anything that tickles your fancy. If you are from out of town, give me a ring, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will discuss mailing your order to you. If you are in the Eastgate, Christchurch area sometime, feel free to pop in and have a bit of a chat. Hope to see you soon.
