Greetings Everyone!!!

I'm currently doing business planning and analysis in hopes of launching a new craft distillery just north of Seattle sometime in the near future. I feel a bit overwhelmed with the details. There's much to learn and I'll be grateful for all your wisdom and experience posted in these forums.

Hi Chris, I don't know much about the distilling side specifics, but I can help you out with your Commercial Insurance and TTB bonding. With a short chat on the phone, I can give you an idea of insurance & bond costs. I currently work with several Small Craft Distilleries here in Washington and up and down the coast so I do have a bit more experience doing this in comparison to some of the other agents. Let me know if I can help out. Rob Knode, Balcos Insurance, 800-292-3456 PH, rknode@balcosinsurance.com
