    The Party Source to Build a Distillery

    And it sounds like a sizable investment:

    Very interesting. How long does it usually take for a start up distillery to actually bottle a decent product? Would they start bottling after aging for two years just to get the product on the shelves while they age other inventory?

    Looks like a nice project.

    PS is cutting out the middleman. This will be a nice tidy profit center for them once it gets rolling.

    Didn't they invest in a microbrewery a while back? What happened there?

    Smart.

    So many of these micro-distilleries are woefully under-capitalized, especially for producing whiskey. The implication is that they have enough money to do it right.

    This looks like a scale similar to Steve Nally's distillery in Wyoming, which makes about 20 barrels (53 gallon) a week. Roughly speaking, that gives you about 20,000 cases a year to sell, not a bad little brand.

    It could take anywhere from 6 to 18 months to get everything built, installed, and broken-in, and because of the ambitious building I'm guessing it will be closer to 18. Ideally, they should shoot for a five-year-old product as a starting point (we've had enough 'white whiskey,' thank you very much), so assuming they are close to starting the clock, that means late 2017 to early 2018 before there is anything to drink.
