do you have a bar component to your distillery?

We're looking at possibly opening a small cocktail bar next to our distillery. I'd love to hear from other folks in terms of what impact it has had on your financial picture (i.e. revenue/profit relative to your tasting room sales, etc). Of course there are a million variables that would impact results, but would just like a bit of anecdotal information if possible.

We just opened 4 weeks ago, and have been selling cocktails, merch, and bottles out of our tasting room. It's going fairly well on the weekends - we usually have a dozen or so folks stop by and they all buy something, sign up for our email list, and spread the word.

It's been a good jump start on sales and it allows us to find what consumers want.

It has been great for us. We started out with just a tasting room with bottle sales, but the full cocktail bar (our own spirits only) has anchored us as a neighborhood institution, and is useful for tour-tastings. And our experience with the cocktails, creating them and getting feedback from customers, has been important in developing and marketing our spirits.
