The state has two types of licenses one requires you use in-state products and the other is more expensive but allows you to use whatever you want. the idea is to use local products.but all needs to go threw the state liquor board.the craft distillery licence is 100$ a year (up to 2000gal a year?) over this and its 2,000$ . so even if you had a licence
you whould have to sell to the state then buy it back.

WAC 314-28-050 What does a craft distillery license allow? (1) A craft distillery license allows a licensee to:
(a) Produce sixty thousand proof gallons or less of spirits per calendar year. A "proof gallon" is one liquid gallon of spirits that is fifty percent alcohol at sixty degrees Fahrenheit;
(b) Sell spirits of its own production directly to a customer for off-premises consumption, provided that the sale occurs when the customer is physically present on the licensed premises. A licensee may sell no more than two liters per customer per day. A craft distiller may not sell liquor products of someone else's production;
(c) Sell spirits of its own production to the board provided that the product is "listed" by the board, or is special-ordered by an individual Washington state liquor store;
(d) Sell to out-of-state entities;
(e) Provide, free of charge, samples of spirits of its own production to persons on the distillery premises. Each sample must be one-half ounce or less, with no more than two ounces of samples provided per person per day. Samples must be unaltered, and anyone involved in the serving of such samples must have a valid Class 12 alcohol server permit. Samples must be in compliance with RCW 66.28.040;
(f) Provide, free of charge, samples of spirits of its own production to retailers. Samples must be unaltered, and in compliance with RCW 66.28.040, 66.24.310 and WAC 314-64-08001. Samples are considered sales and are subject to taxes;
(g) Contract produced spirits for holders of a distiller or manufacturer license.
(2) A craft distillery licensee may not sell directly to in-state retailers or in-state distributors.

Under regulations in part 29 of title 27, Code of Federal Regulations, TTB has the right to require manufacturers of stills to give us the name and address of each customer. If we choose to impose this requirement, we inform the manufacturer of the stills by letter.
