    What not to do when marketing Tasting room?

    Rtshfd, Laws and regulations on the marketing of alcoholic beverages can vary widely from state to state, my suggestion is to contact the liquor control board for your state and ask them directly. In addition, I have also provided a link below to the TTB's advertising guidelines. https://www.ttb.gov/advertising/alcohol-beverage.shtml

    Fire Marshal

    Silatjunkie, I highly suggest that you contact the fire code consultant we used to solve our own similar fire marshal issues. He charged us $250 to fix everything and it was well worth it. Here is his contact info. Steve Dalbey Distillery Code Consulting srdalbey@gmail.com 563-299-2888

    Oxidation of spirit add ins?

    Joe, I make 20+ small batch organic liqueurs and have found over the last five years or so that an alcohol content of 16%+ ABV and a Brix of 8%+ in a liqueur will actually act as a natural preservative as long as the flavor additives are reasonable stable. If you're careful you can also add a small amount of food grade citric acid as a stabilizing agent, it's especially useful with fruit liqueurs which can also turn out really cloudy without it. You only want to use about 0.5% by volume or else the flavor of the liqueur may be affected though.

    Point Of Sale Systems

    Our square has worked fine for chipped cards, the only issue is that it we now have customers who keep forgetting their cards in the machine.

    Sourcing Roman Wormwood

    Robert, We are also working on sourcing Pontica for our absinthe, we found a company called Pacific Botanicals that is growing it, organically, in Oregon. They're reasonably priced and haven't gotten anything that wasn't top quality from them, but keep in mind Pontica is never cheap. http://www.pacificbotanicals.com/store/Wormwood1-(Petite).html

    We got inspected by the FDA

    We just came out the other end of a TTB audit, what a headache for only $300 and a few misplaced cells on a report. That being said, the inspector was really nice and when we mentioned that our friend's distillery had been inspected by the FDA , she seemed very concerned and wrote a note in her journal. I have a sneaking suspicion that the FDA is coming our way next, it would be helpful to know what they'll be looking for so we can prepare for it.

    Searching for 200ml swing top bottles

    Got approached by a company out of europe but their MOQ was around 90 pallets and they didn't seem keen on coming down off of that number.

    Labelize vodka

    Hate to say it, but someone has too. I don't think anyone here would be interested in that sort of operation; as it is generally frowned on in the distilling community where distilling is treated as an art form. But that's just my opinion on the matter.

    Gin Bitterness - Berries or sharper cuts needed?!

    Probably low quality herbs grown with pesticides, try a better supplier. Try any of these sites, we've used all four in the past supplier without any quality issues. http://www.starwest-botanicals.com https://www.mountainroseherbs.com http://sfherb.com http://www.pacificbotanicals.com

    Searching for 200ml swing top bottles

    Hi Robert, your photo didn't appear on here. Shoot us an email at Salishseaorganicliqueurs@gmail.com and we can discuss. Though, just so you're aware, we are not looking to order bottles from China.
