DOEN ZHUMIR Distributor my Big MISTAKE

I am writing this in order to prevent another distiller in committing my mistake.  When I was doing a Background information on this NY distributor nothing came out.  I asked input from several of the liquor stores but they were neutral in answering the questions.  So in my short experience with them I had to let them go. 
        So I will write here the lessons that I have learned from the experience.  The first reason for letting them go was nonpayment.  As a small distillery, you need that money to pay taxes and to reinvest in your distillery.  The second, was that they failed to service their accounts.  They promised to do certain things and didn't follow through. The third, they are predominantly importers of Value products from Latin America, their knowledge base on American Whiskey and the Craft Distillery Movement was limited. Please do your research on the Distributors beforehand. 
            Have everything in writing before hand.  If you can negotiate in receiving payment ahead of time do so.  Take time to educate their sales staff.  Have an Exit Strategy. As of now we went back to self distribution.  Will keep you posted.
