  1. So obviously there is a lot of documentation and paperwork involved with running your own distillery due to heavy regulation.. Are there currently any programs to help track this information? Is it all done just in your own personal spreadsheet?
  2. Hi everyone. I've been reading through the forum and I have received a few private messages from people so I guess I should introduce myself. My name's Jason, I'm located in Centreville, VA. I have a big interest in botanical spirits such as Gin and Absinthe but mainly absinthe as I've just recently started trying different gins. I have a few ideas I'd like to see come to fruition starting with a contract brand, followed by a distillery and finally a restaurant. I'm here to gather as much knowledge as I can so that I can plan and then plan some more before implementing. I consider myself an information fiend. Thanks to everyone in advance for any advice or ideas you may offer with regards to the numerous questions i'm sure will pop up in this extremely confusing maze of government regulations and paperwork. Best regards, Jason
  3. Virginia requires a non-bonded warehouse permit for storage of distilled spirits in the state. What are the TTB requirements for warehousing? This is strictly for storage of spirits that have already been bottled and labeled.
  4. Hello everyone, I've been in the brainstorming stages recently trying to figure out what path I should take. I've always enjoyed a good absinthe. As I read about cost of startup plus time of licensing I have come to the conclusion that I should probably start out with some contract distilling to at least get started and then eventually start my own distillery in the future. Through all the reading im doing, I see a lot of people who started with contracts with foreign distilleries for their absinthe. Are there any domestic distilleries who do contract distilling? I can't seem to find them. I did contact one foreign distillery and they weren't even interested and didn't even give me the time of day. I think maybe they didn't understand my intentions. Anyway, a quick glimpse of what I'd like to do: Start an absinthe label of my own - start a distillery of my own - incorporate that into a restaurant/bar any help with contract distillers would be great. I can find artisan distillers in my area but most are all doing whiskey and gin and I don't even know where to begin finding a domestic contract. Thanks a lot! Jason
