Distillery relocation

Good day all. As snug as we are in our current facility for variouse reasons we are looking to relocate our distillery, still within our community. I believe some of you have already done so. Do any members have insight on what the best avenue through TTB would be. Timeline? Pitfalls? Advice?

Thanks for your help.

We did this. Before I signed a lease I had our local TTB guy visit the new space to ensure it was going to be doable. Security is their main concern.

We were out of production for about 3 months, but had built up quite a bit of stock (3 months worth) which our distributor took in before we suspended our permit for the old location.

After I received an informal review of our plan from our TTB field specialist I signed the lease and we began buildout (which took about 5 months total). We then worked with our TTB contact in Cincinnati who made sure we knew what had to be updated, and once updated kept a lookout for our applications. You will need to update your permits, bonds and all supporting info. Relatively painless with some planning ahead but it did take some time- they won't put you at the top of their stack, you'll have to wait just like you did for your initial permit.

Good luck!

Amazing! this is a topic that is very much on my mind as well. Grehorst was very helpful in describing the process and time factors in re locating. I think you've saved me a bunch of problems. Any other insights or other folks experiences will be much appreciated.
