Another task we are plugging away on is getting all the legal bits of paper needed to sell hard cider. We sent off our federal winery license application last week, and once we get that we will move on to the state paperwork, then work on local permissions. No telling how long all this will take. The federal application can now be submitted online, which is supposed to speed up the process considerably. We submit it through the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax Bureau or something along those lines (TTB for short, I don’t know where the A goes) and apparently the agents you deal with are truly helpful and really get you through the process. We will know more when we get some feedback on our application.
