My family and I are in the process of opening a distillery in Brookshire, TX just west of Houston passed Katy, TX. We are planning to start of making vodka and moonshine while aging whiskeys in barrels for future sales. We have gotten our premise approval from Texas Alcohol Beverage Commission (TABC) and city of Brookshire. Both our state and federal licenses have been submitted and we are 35 days in to our Federal which currently takes 130 days and 44 days into our state which normally takes 60. We are really excited about this and being part of such a great community of distillers. We are currently searching out some equipment, ie labeler, heat shrinker for pvc, pumps, hoses, etc... I am looking at going with either a corson system or a system from affordable distilling which seems to make more sense. however I have been in talks with DYE through a Chinese purchasing friend. Anyone have any experience with DYE , sure seems you get a lot for your buck with them.
Anyway, look forward to communicating here, have already met many good folks on the sale site peer to peer
