And I mean that literally: we’ve looked at three possible locations for the distillery and they each have a lot going for them.
The spaces are very different in shape and configuration, but they would all be great with a little (or, in some cases, a lot) of work. The thing is, I anticipate doing a good portion of sales out of the distillery for the first little while and I hope to use the location to help build local awareness, so in some ways, it comes down to which is in the best spot. Where will there be the highest visibility? The best foot traffic? The best surrounding demographics?
I have my own ideas on each of them, but if you’re familiar with Seattle, I have this question for you: without knowing the other facts of the locations (size, configuration, cost, etc.), in which part of town would you put a distillery/tasting room?
