Legal Services for Liquor Distilleries

“There are only two ways to get ahead today - sell liquor, or drink it.” W.C. Fields.  Distilling has become a haven for new and exciting flavors of vodka, experimental whiskey, and American rum to name a few.  Prohibition-era door busting is long gone, but the regulators and strict requirements for reporting and managing distillation and liquor sales have not.  We are a team that you can trust to keep the moonshine flowing in any state in the Union (except perhaps Utah).  We know liquor takes time and precision and big fancy flames and boiling.  We also know you don’t have the time to figure out trademarks, deal with the TTB and still make good booze.  Call us and let us handle the tricky stuff.


Talk about a minefield.  Liquor startups face a unique set of challenges regulations, and frankly, prejudices, more so than the more mature industries of wine and beer.  We have weathered these storms and can help your distillery get off the ground.  Ask about our resources and what goes into your agreement with your partners.  Call us today.
