In the last few years, there has been an explosion of new, small distilleries in the state.
A recent law has allowed for small operations to get a $100 state permit, along with the Fed permit, to produce up to 20,000 proof gallons per year.
To sell product through the bottle shops, you have to produce enough to supply all of the shops in the state. The law does allow the sale of 1.5 Litres per person, per visit to the distillery, if you are not able to meet the statewide sales criteria. (Along with local sales to bars, through the state stores.)
Maybe one step closer to home distilling?
It is the very things that we think we know, that keep us from learning what we should know.
