Safety in distilleries is and should be a primary concern for any owner and manager. Not only is watching out for all your worker's well being the moral thing to do, it's also cost-effective. Maintaining an OSHA compliant distillery is essential to saving money and maintaining a safe and happy work environment for your employees.
When it comes to dealing with government regulation, liquor manufacturing catches most of the heat. We put together 5 tips for entrepreneurs looking into starting a craft distillery.
Most distilleries run on rather slim margins, and even if they are deep in the black, it isn’t like they are overflowing with personnel. The big, corporate distilleries have foreign investors throwing millions into their stock. Craft guys and gals have their dreams and lots of coffee.

If there is one negative thing that craft spirits can't help, it's a higher price tag. Not very many labels are as friendly to the consumer bank account as they'd like to be.

They don’t have acres and acres of vats and rackhouses that they can use to bring down costs on sheer scale alone. Most don’t have the national or international distribution and marketing arms that the big companies have. The other significant cost factor is quality. Genuine quality isn't cheap and not something that can be done on the same scale of the major brands.
