Our man in Japan
In this employment market? DP World will have scabs lined up around the block for the chance to enter the Thunderdome and fight to the death for a chance to do the job for half the pay. And then the government will send out the army to protect the work zone from the picketing wharfies.The Wharfies/Dockers have always had a good unionised workforce, I would be surprised if anyone steps up to unload it... though in Oz style, they'll bring in overseas workers to do it.
I'm pretty sure there's plenty of money on it and less tax. But nowhere near as much prestige.Giving it away is cool.
A distiller south of Sydney is selling 250ml for $15. It's made using barley so I don't think there's much profit in it compared to the gin but it's certainly extra sales.
No way...it's total bespoke artisan gin. Always.A lot of those places buy in 250l drums of 94% food grade ethanol and water it down, then add to their gin base, for under $50/l.
