Brothers Vilgalys Spirits Posted February 13, 2012 Share Posted February 13, 2012 So we've reached the point where we're just trying to raise seed money, and of course the biggest cost there is the facility itself. We've flirted with the idea of contract manufacturing, but I haven't come across any facilities nearby that would be a good fit. However there are several commercial kitchens in the area that lease time and space for very good prices, which would drastically cut down the amount of money we'd need to raise to get underway. My product is a spiced honey liqueur, and I'll be blending it with bulk NGS anyway (adding a still when we can afford one), so there's no "practical" reason why a kitchen wouldn't work. Does anybody know how much of a quagmire it would be to lease time and space in a commercial kitchen? My understanding is that the kitchen would have to apply for the DSP, while I would need a wholesalers permit to warehouse the spirits. Does that mean that whatever space is used for spirits couldn't be used for regular kitchen stuff? Would they also need to partition off a section? I'm imagining that this would be very difficult to make work, but it would save me a ton of money. Any thoughts are appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
