Good news for fans of local booze: Atelier Vie, one of the two new distilleries getting ready to open up in town, has been cleared to begin operations. President Jedd Haas is calling the distillery, located inside the ArtEgg building near the corner of Broad and Earhart Blvd, a "liquor studio," which suggests output will be small and super crafty.

Atelier Vie's first product will be the Toulouse Red absinthe, which, as the Red Streetcar writes, is "a traditional red absinthe, which derives its distinctive flavor and color from hibiscus flowers." That's also the name of Atelier Vie's (fictional?) spokesperson, who shows up in the press release announcing the fact that the distillery is now fully licensed. Haas says it'll be a couple of months before Toulouse Red is ready to sell, as he'll have to go through formula and label approvals with the Federal government.

June 28, 2012 – New Orleans, LA
New Orleans’ newest distillery, Atelier Vie, LLC, announced today that the company has received all necessary permits to begin distilling.

“This is a huge milestone,” Atelier Vie’s Jedd Haas noted. “Our main still is fully operational, and we look forward to starting production. There are still a few more regulatory hurdles ahead of us; once past them, we look forward to introducing New Orleans to our products.”

Atelier Vie was founded in 2011 to address the need for a greater variety of locally produced distilled spirits. “There’s plenty of interest in alcoholic beverages here in New Orleans, but we noticed that very little is actually produced here. Atelier Vie fulfills that desire to produce new styles of indigenous liquor,” Haas continued.

Brand spokeswoman Toulouse Red was also piqued by the news. “Toulouse Red is everywhere,” she noted self-referentially. “But soon, I’ll be street legal; and will be meeting the absinthe lovers all over town.” Toulouse Red was last seen heading towards the French Quarter on her Vespa.

At the distillery, supplies are arriving and the distilling krewe is busy with their custom-fabricated stainless and copper still.

Artemis, you should pay them a visit, so they can kiss the papal ring.
Stroller
Looks like they may have already kissed the ring.
Père Ubu
I meant the one on the Pope's finger. :)
I did lure them out there, but besdies the usual pleasantries, nothing happened.
Stroller
I'd like to see more photos of the still.

Only the redeemed are worthy of the Blingdom of God.

Are those milk cans?
Père Ubu
Is the tall skinny top a way for heavier stuff to drop back down, and increase the size/quality of the heart? Would that perform the same job as Oxy's big wet (rectifying) balls?
I've noticed in old drawings, a tall and thin tube rising from the pot and arcing at a high point before turning dowards to the condesnser, does that accomplish the same thing?
thegreenimp
Lemme know if Swizzle Rouge comes back.
Artemis
I don't see any milk cans or a still on that page, but the arcing tube on the old stills is a col de cygne (swan neck). It connects the head of the still to the condenser.
Kirk
I was talking about the "boiler" looks like a milker.
Maybe Ubu is referring to the " alcohol filter" laying on a bench, looks like they may be off to a bad start.
Tibro
Can't say that it looks like a reason to visit NOLA.

I like Red Absinthe, 'specially when it's green and based on a Nimes recipe.

I though the boiler was an odd looking thing, but then I'm not that familiar with pot stills.

alcohol filter? Ok, I only went as far as Chem 102, and Wikipidea don't help. what the heck is it?

As for the swan necks, I guess they meant for some heavier compounds to drop out of the vapor, and back into the pot, similar in purpose to a rectifying ball. Then again, my previously mentioned (lack of) education might steer me wrong. I did pass Thermo 2 (eventually).
Tibro
Every good Red knows a thing or three about pulling off good greens.

Ironic, inn't?

Inneresting that you could find a shot with that filter in the up-right position.

Ha!

Brings back memories but she was cuter with the potato chip bag on her head.

Thanks for bringing back long suppressed (nightmarish) memories form the 1980s. Or my wife's current nightmare.

That's nothing. The Lounge isn't like WS.

I didn't see any pictures of any distilling equipment at all on that page. There was a label and that's about it. It might have to do with my script blocker, although I enabled a few, and 40 others asked to run, something that generally lets me know I've found a crap website upon which I don't want to linger anyway.

Thanks, I had not seen that page at all.

The thing on the bench captioned "alcohol filter" - I don't know what that thing is, but I wouldn't put too much faith in captions. I once wrote a feature article about archers, and provided a picture I had taken of a man drawing a bow that had a stabilizer on it. The editor wrote a caption for the picture that described the archer as practicing with a "dummy arrow" (the stabilizer), and it was published that way ...
Père Ubu
Kinda look like a condenser to me, but I haven't seen one of those since Dr. G's Steamlab at the University of LSU rejects in Lafayette, LA.
L'Assommoir

It looks like it could be a brewery filter.

Since the captions reads partially " ..on its journey to the distillery" could he be fermenting his own base spirit?
Kirk
I'm sure Kyle Brainsfarter would be able to explain that one to us better than anyone.
Bruno Rygseck
Those things should go under export control. Or, in this case, import control.
R3al Caravano
Wow, someone actually is using electric immersion coils commercially. The electrical inspector on the other hand is probably pretty slack there. I'll agree with Arty (having looked again in the last few days) the "filter" looks like what now is the condenser. That's a big neck on that beast, but that's a tiny head space; it will probably work out though; there are many ways to skin a cat.
