Farm distillery, California

Recommended Posts

Here is the plan:

Farm distillery. Grow fruit, and distill it there. It would happen to be the farm that I live on. Does anyone have advice on the specific legal hurtles involved with this? Is it even in the realm of possibility? Thanks for your help Californios.

We originally opened to make fruit brandy and if we hadn't started making whiskey after two years we would have gone out of business. The market isn't there for fruit brandies, and even when the fruit is free it is difficult to compete pricewise because processing the fruit takes a lot of logistics and labor. I love making it, but we do less and less each year as even just doing a couple of batches of plum or cherries a year is more than we can sell.
