acdanger Posted December 22, 2010 Share Posted December 22, 2010 Howdy, I'm interested in making small-batch bitters either as a hobby and maybe as a business down the road. As I understand it, bitters are nationally classified as a food product and not regulated or taxed as spirits are. And so I'm wondering: would be it be possible to purchase wholesale amounts of a neutral spirit from a distillery if it was intended for bitters production? Anyone know of anyone doing anything similar in the country? Would that even be legally possible or make financial sense? I'm really not prepared to start my own distillery with all the associated taxes and bureaucracy just for the production of bitters. Any insights would be greatly appreciated. I'm currently based in the Virginia-DC area if that helps. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
