bluestar Posted May 24, 2011 Share Posted May 24, 2011 I am looking for feedback and experience from any other small distillery that has set up operation in two states. In particular, we are looking at state licensing code in each state (Michigan and Illinois, in this case) that prohibits owners of one distillery from having financial interest in another. Either, the law only pertains within the state (not likely), or the owners would own a single company that would have two DSPs, one in each state. If the latter, should one presume a license is issued to the distillery for operation of the DSP within each state, respectively? If so, do the restrictions of the state license hold only for each DSP, or for the total? As an example, in Michigan I can produce 60000 gallons under their license, in Illinois I can produce 5000 gallons under their license. So, can each DSP produce each amount, respectively? Or can the company only produce a total that is the lesser of the two licenses? We are looking for precedence, since this situation has never happened with a distillery in either Illinois or Michigan, to either state's knowledge. And my lawyers are flummoxed.
