  1. Just getting ready to put together our TTB DSP application. I have read many of your horror stories on how long it takes to get the operating permit. I know there are several firms that assist folks like me on crafting and submitting the application. Has anyone used a service like this? Is it worth the money? We're talking $2500 to $3000. But if they can save months of downtime while I'm still having to pay a lease....might be worth it. How daunting is the whole application process? Feedback would be greatly appreciated.
  2. So this may sound like an odd question, but we received our federal permit, and have not received our State yet (Ohio). The state has been submitted, but still in process. So this the question: Can we make small batches for Research purposes without the intent to sell? If so, just pay the federal tax on it? Please let me know your thoughts if you have any ideas. Many thanks, Curt
  3. Does anyone have any knowledge of a specific part of the DSP application process that is specifically related to GNS or NGS? One of our owners spoke with a gentlemen during a distillery tour and he mentioned something about a specific permit from the feds when using GNS. I talked with a rep from the TTB today, and she didn't seem to be aware of this, and mentioned that if using GNS as well as mashing from scratch (we plan to use both techniques at different stages), that we may have to apply for the permit as both a beverage and an industrial permit? Does that sound right? Does anyone have an answer for this or some insight? It doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense that we would need to apply as an for an industrial permit if we are simply purchasing GNS and then making GIN by running it through our stills with the additives. Any help would be much appreciated. Cheers, Curt
  4. In the process of putting together initial application for DSP. We are 4 partners that have an LLC and in the TTB application there are required documents for each owner/officer. One of these is a Source of Funds SOF. They require a current bank statement and the previous 3 months of bank statements from each partner. I realize we are all going into business together, however, we may not all want each other to see our bank statements. My question - is there a way to provide the info without compromising all this financial data to the other partners? Or has anyone else dealt with this and found a way to keep this private but still meet the TTB requirements? Thanks in advance.
  5. TTB Permit Questions

    Just started our DSP application and have come up with a couple questions. Have people had good success contacting them through the phone number they provide? Below are my questions: 1) Do they need owner/officer information for all investors or just managers? Our investors are all silent and own anywhere from 5-10%, but none of it is voting stock. 2) What do they require for source of funds? Do they want our bank statements showing us getting funds from investors? Or do they want our investor bank statements showing where they got their funds? 3) Do they require serial numbers for all the equipment (fermenters, mash tank, etc.) or just the still? 4) Do I need to upload my lease? I see nothing prompting this?
  6. Distilling/Contracting Hybrid

    I'm located in NC, recently graduated college, and eventually want to move towards opening my own distillery. I've developed one or two formulas for spirits through significant experimentation while developing a brand that I believe will serve a specific niche. However, I do lack significant capital and distilling experience. For this reason I'm aiming to begin by contracting with a local distillery and hope to be as hands on as possible to gain experience (I do have enough savings for this, including a limited marketing budget). I have created an LLC and submitted my application for a wholesaler's basic permit with the TTB. I'm familiar with most contracting agreements with distilleries where the DSP holds the formula and COLA for a firm, and a firm grants permission for a DSP to use it's name, logos, trademarks, etc. for production purposes, the wholesaler then buys the bottles from the DSP, then sells to . My specific questions: 1. Can my company hold the formula and COLA? The TTB asks for the basic permit # in the submissions for formula and COLA, and I understand that the DSP generally holds this. I'd like to hold formula/COLA as the formula does have something (I consider to be ) unique I'd rather not share, for ease in case I need to change which DSP I contract out to, and for ease when we eventually build our own DSP. As I understand a DSP almost always submits and holds formula/COLA, but I want to know if a wholesaler can do this. 2. How hands on can I be in producing the product? I have some familiarity with tied house laws and understand the three tier system. As a wholesaler contracting to a DSP, can I physically be in the DSP producing/bottling the product? I would buy the product from the DSP as a wholesaler (or brokerage in NC), which would then be sold to the NC ABC system. 3. What are the laws (or where can I be pointed) regarding a wholesaler storing product? I understand bonded warehouses for a DSP or even an importer, however, I can't seem to find much information about storing bottled spirits after they have left the DSP and all taxes have been paid. Just to bring this all together so everyone knows how everything will flow, this is what I would like to do: I will get my TTB wholesaler basic permit, after basic obtained apply for NC brokerage permit, after basic obtained submit and get formula approval, after formula obtained submit and get COLA, contract with local DSP and order supplies, assist DSP in production and bottling of first order, I buy bottles from the DSP, fed excise taxes are paid and bottles are removed from bond, bottles are stored at a different location not under bond, bottles are sold to the NC ABC system (go to central warehouse and then to retail locations). Of course there is a lot of hard work and marketing going on, but that's just what I'm envisioning as my legal procedure. I apologize for any of my ignorance regarding this topic, thank you for any and all help!

  8. Distillery Opportunity in Hawaii

    Distillery Opportunity in Hawaii Property + Natural Water Source + Beverage MFG SUP, Hilo, Hawaii PROPERTY OVERVIEW The Vision: In 1993, the owner secured a special use permit (SUP), allowing the development of a distillery, brewery, or specialty (non- alcoholic) manufacturing and bottling company on just under 7 acres. The Hawaiian property takes advantage of an existing natural artesian water source flowing from the slopes of Mauna Loa, pumped to the property from an existing well. This permit set the wheels in motion for the vision: a Micro Distillery or Micro Brewery with product blended with pristine Hawaiian water. The vision is complete with a visitor center, beer garden and tasting room to capitalize on the exploding local and visitor population. In 2012, HB1925 was signed into law as ACT 302. In summary: Allows holders of Class 1 manufacturer liquor licenses to sell beer, wine, or other specified liquor manufactured or distilled on the licensee's premises from fruit or other products grown in the State, in any quantity to wholesalers in original packages or for private use and consumption. (HB1925 CD1) This allows for direct sale of alcohol on the manufacturer’s premises. The alcohol must use any quantity of locally grown product. See: http://www.capitol.h...billnumber=1925 Today, you can realize this vision. Strategically located, abundant, and fertile Hawaiian land Access to natural Hawaiian artisanal water source Special Use Permit Friendly business climate for direct sales for private consumption, and sale to wholesaler Unique opportunity for “Made In Hawaii” branding INVESTMENT HIGHLIGHTS Special Use Permit: Special Permit 842 (Docket No 93-000003) and subsequent amendments allow the expanded development of a brewery, distillery, soft drink bottling facility and related improvements. Due to a non-compete agreement with Hawaiian Springs Water Co., the bottling of pure drinking water is not a permitted use. However, soda or flavored water and beverages remain as permitted uses. Strategic location: The Property is located just 8 miles from Hilo International Airport and The Port of Hilo just off of Highway 11 which serves as the main roadway connecting Hilo with Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and its estimated 1.35 million visitors per year. Tourism Appeal: According to the National Park Service, visitors spent in 2010 an estimated $122 million at the National Parks and the surrounding communities on the Big Island - $88.26 million came from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Made in Hawaii: Hawaii is world-renown with products distributed throughout the US mainland and Asia. Some of the many products from Hawaii that have enjoyed the "Made in Hawaii" success include Kona coffee, Deep-Sea Bottled Water, Natural Artesian Bottled Water, chocolate covered macadamia nuts, and the growing number of micro-brews and distilleries in the State. Large level lots: The design of sub-divided lots promote building design efficiencies. Taxes: General Excise taxes are lower on the island of Hawaii when compared to Oahu. Freight costs: Island-to-island shipping companies currently offer reduced rates for shipping back empty containers such as kegs and other reusable containers. PROPERTY DESCRIPTION Location: Kea'au, Hawaii (Border of Hilo & Kea'au) Area: Lot 9722-A - 2.410 acres, Lot 9722-B - 2.995 acres Zoning: FA-2a, Family Agriculture Special use permit: BREWERY, DISTILLERY, WATER AND SOFT DRINK BOTTLING FACILITIES AND RELATED IMPROVEMENTS Building height allowance: 45 feet, commercial building allowing for tall column stills, fermentation tanks and so on.
