Athens, Georgia, Release: July 13. For Immediate Release
The equipment layout for your distillery is a crucial, yet often overlooked, success factor. It isn’t just a matter of compliance and regulations; how you structure your equipment can lead to better production yields. And that means more distribution opportunities, more brand believers, and more profits.
Few industries have as complicated a relationship with the distribution side of business as distillers. In many states, a distillery isn't allowed to sell directly to the customer. Regulations forcing distilleries to only offer samples about the size of one shot, and only one per customer, are not uncommon.
Starting any new business is a daunting task, and hats off to the brave souls that do. Every industry or business has its own set of challenges to overcome when starting up, but craft distilleries have a few unique hurdles all their own. Most of these come down to one thing - money.
