Lucky 13

Nearly 5 months after submitting the first formula for our Sac’Résine, we have finally been granted the authority to forge ahead with this vermouth. After spending more than a year developing and testing our formulation, we were pleased that only a few minor modifications were needed. What remains to be achieved before we can sell it in open commerce is the obtainment of a Certificate of Label Approval (or COLA) from the Labeling Division of that very same organization as what brought us the approval of the formula. Let us now abide by whatever superstitions govern our irrational fears, so that the label approval process might be less of a tribulation than the ordeal that finally did yield a formula approval!
