After creating v1.0 and having them put into use for several weeks, some “tweaking” was both expected and needed.
In addition, I was fortunate enough to have the folks from Conquest request a larger order (fifty total) for both their internal use in their tasting room and also for retail sales.
This was great news!
To those ends, we discussed some changes and production was initiated.
Below are some pictures and a discussion of the process:
