... non-whiskey revenue streams ...
[/QUOTE] When I read that, I immediately pictured you running your licensed still, along with a token warehouse, in a theme park, such as Knott's Berry Farm (in the L.A. area), where your operation would be a good fit with the funnel cake shop, the mine train, the log ride, the dance hall, etc.
Perhaps a more adult-oriented attraction would be more suitable. I'm not a Las Vegas buff, but maybe they have something that would be a good fit.
The downside of such an approach is that someone else would have a say in your operation, perhaps to the detriment of the whiskey.
