  1. I was hoping people would share some of their more successful events that they do within their tasting rooms to drive traffic and revenue. Hopefully, this helps others as well. Thanks in advance for sharing.
  2. Here is an update to ADI's Survey of Distillery Tasting Room Laws. If you know of any changes in state laws or corrections please email me at eric@distilling.com Cheers. 2017 Survey of Distillery Tasting Room Laws.pdf
  3. Surf City Still Works is the first distillery to operate in Huntington Beach. We have a clear vision of where we are headed and what our values are, and we are looking for a new team member who is just as excited as we are about our future. We treat everyone with respect and work continuously to cultivate a work environment where we can all grow and thrive together. Since we are a Craft Distillery and do not operate a kitchen at our current location, we are limited to serving 1.5oz per person unless it is a private event by CA law. We will be building out a kitchen in our new location wh
  4. Hello All, I am working on a 2019 update for ADI's Survey of Tasting Room Laws. I got a request to track which states expressly limit distillery tours and or tasting room access to persons who are 21 or older. Please let me know your state and if there is a age restriction for people who visit (not taste or drink in) your distillery. Thank you.
  5. Hey Guys i need your feedback from the experienced distiller on the layout of out future distillery, let me know what you think and i take all comments in consideration to avoid mistakes. Here's the video of my virtual tour of our distillery. en virtual tour feedback.avi
  6. We have a current DSP with our bonded areas marked off along with our tasting room and retail. We are located inside a mill complex and have one of the units. Recently another unit became available 10 feet down the hall from us and we are planning to expand into it. Our plan is to keep our current location and just use it for production and alcohol storage operations while moving our tasting room and retail into the new unit. Both units are located at the same address but have a different unit #. What/how do I process this change with the TTB and what is the expected turnaround time
  7. Anyone have ideas on how to reduce the noise from my still mixer/auger. Its very loud and we have a super small distillery with a tasting room at one end. I am trying to make it so I can produce and sell bottles at the same time, its difficult with the mixing blade going. I tried building a plywood box around it and it didn't help much, also tried acrylic. Its also hard to tell if it helped at all, after listening to it all day. Any ideas?

  10. The TTB permit tutorial states: Did you know that tasting rooms for Distilled Spirits Plants: Cannot be on bonded premises nor can they be on general premises. You must have an area that is completely segregated from the distillery. Any information regarding tasting rooms/retail areas should not be listed in the application information. It should be shown on the diagram so we can ensure sufficient segregation and separate entrances for that area and the distillery. I have attached a basic sketch of my proposed layout for my micro-distillery. I have a 50 gallon tower still and th
  11. Dear brothers and sisters in booze, Got a phone call today from a guy named Joe Leavy at ASCAP.

  13. Since the beginning of the year I have been collecting information on the different state laws that govern distillery tasting room laws around the country. I completed the survey and the results have been published in the Fall 2015 issue of Distiller Magazine. Since this is a very important topic I wanted to post the information from the survey here. If there are any errors in the survey please email me eric@distilling.com to let me know. ADI 2015 Survey of State Tasting Room Laws for Craft Distilleries.pdf
  14. Good afternoon folks and congrats on the success you all are having, the jobs you're creating and the fantastic products you're creating. I'm Kyle Rheiner - an insurance agent that specializes the insurance for Craft Distilleries and Breweries. I'm outside Philadelphia, PA, and I run www.craftdistillinginsurance.com I work with the majority of the distilleries and breweries in PA and NJ and have began to expand into Texas (we insure 4 here), Tennessee, NY, CT, DE, MD, and so on. Here's an interview I did regarding Liquor Liability Insurance with one of the largest insurance magazines in t
  15. Hello, ADI is collecting information so that we have an accurate picture of different state laws that govern distillery tasting rooms around the country. Once we have all the information I will compile it into a document that will be made available for any distiller or guild working to get more favorable laws passed in their state. Please follow the link and complete our survey. https://www.regonline.com/tastingroomlawsbystate_1683647
  16. Good morning! We have an opportunity to move our tasting room from a rather industrial, off-the-beaten-path location, to a high-traffic area in a very cool Main Street building. My question is, what kind of hoops do you need to jump through to make this happen at the Federal level. I don't think we'll have any problem with the state or the city. The rent is $250/month and we can be in there before Christmas. We have t-shirts, books and, of course, our vodka (soon gin and whiskey) to sell. Thank you. Cheers/ Brian
  17. ADI would like all distillers to know that you can sell any or all of the books that ADI publishes from your gift shop or tasting room. We sell the books to you at the wholesale price and then you can sell them for the suggested retail price. There is no minimum order and no requirement to buy certain titles. I have attached our current catalogue of books which contains pricing information for each title. If you have any questions or would like to place an order please contact Gail Sands by email gail@distilling.com or by phone (707) 490-2298 We are also offering distilleries with tasting ro
  18. ADI Members, Thanks again for all your support with your Marketing Myth Countdown series! It has allowed us to get to know many of you and we are grateful! We've just posted the final entry for this blog series. This week's myth is a two-headed monster: (1) "We Don't Have A Marketing Department"; AND (2) "We Have A Marketing Department." You'll just have to read this one for it to make sense … http://www.fuelevents.net/#!fuel-blog/c22sz Also, check out this week's featured distilleries: High Ridge Spirits from Alabama and Wood's High Mountain Distillery out of Colorado. Remember, Fu
  19. So we're just seeing our product on shelves locally here in NC (hooray!), and soon I'll be opening up the tasting room on Satudays. My insurance company is emphasizing the need for liquor liability insurance, which carries a minimum cost of $1,000 / year. That seems extra-ordinarily high to me, especially because it's a policy designed for bars / restaurants. Pouring a single .5 oz sample is a pretty different, and I've tried to explain this. How many tasting rooms bother with this extra insurance? I'll be open 4 days a month, serving a third of a drink. It just doesn't seem like the risk/r
  20. Hello, y'all I'm going for it, and I need y'all to try to talk me out of it. Just kidding, sort of. I've been putting together a business plan (which for me consists of staring at a computer screen for and hour and then typing one sentence) to start an artisan distillery. I am currently in the throws of making some big decisions regarding the operation, and this forum is priceless for helping me put these decisions into perspective. My first thought, being a novice business owner with little capital to invest, was to start as small as possible. I originally wanted to rent a small warehou
