Default Whiskey gin vodka or rum?

Our application for a variance to build a distillery at Tavern 27 was approved. Please take a moment and complete this poll to help us better anticipate the alcohol preference around the lake.

Well I suppose that Bourbon technically is a Whiskey however many other lessor spirits fall into that category. Hence I will withhold my vote

I am a bourbon person myself but given the 4 choices I will always opt for any whiskey over vodka, gin or rum.

Many are doing Bourbon Bars. I would vote for the Vodka. You do more with it behind the bar. You can still carry high end bourbons

Vodka on the rocks. Assuming the rocks haven't become slushy and sunk.

It would seem to me that you would want to carry at least a minimum of each so that you would never have to say "We don't have that" when a patron orders a drink.

Or, was this thread started as means of free publicity for the restaurant?

Although I am a Kentucky sipín whiskey (bourbon) guy, based on the choices Iíd go with rum but more specifically a smooth toasted coconut rum.

Tavern 27 has a full liquor license and does and will continue to maintain one of the largest selections for spirits around that lake. The addition of a distilling operation will enable us to make our own spirits. Each of the four spirit categories listed require a different procedure and different equipment. I've turned to this form to survey our immediate market and attempt to both better serve the market and establish our strategy from this point forward.

I applied for the trademark behind this idea nearly 3 years ago and yes I was aware at that time that when the cat got out of the bag it would generate free publicity. I've already had various traditional media outlets contact me with a request for an interview. I've denied all request to this point because I'm not ready for free publicity.

If you look back this was a continuance of his permit request to the city from another thread. As Baygo states and as he has mentioned through conversation in many other threads he has been serving liquor at his restaurant inside and outside. This imo is a welcomed addition and he was just surveying what type of liquor he should distill since he received his permit. To me this isnít advertising

Thank you Rusty. It will be interesting to see how our local market aligns with this report.

Default Whisky

I voted for whiskey since whisky was not on the list, nor is it on the statistics provided by Rusty. Thank you Rusty. Good info.
I would think that time to market would be a major consideration. If you have to age something for years before you can sell it, that requires a whole different set up and timeline plus another layer of overhead. I'd guess what you sell at your present bar is a good indicator, but, of course, good marketing can sell almost anything. Premium vodka is my second choice. When I take the tours, I politely always drink the free sample(s). Looking forward to sampling your success.

I vote for whiskey. My wife would vote gin but she says sheís not a big drinker so doesnít think her vote should count as much. My daughter votes whiskey but she lives in Ohio and only visits occasionally so maybe a quarter vote for her.

You will eventually stop drinking alcohol.
The question is, will you still have a heartbeat when you do.YES, it is that serious.

I was asked in another thread for a progress report. I thought it best to answer it here.

I have ordered and paid for the still. Itís scheduled to be delivered on September 21. There is another key piece of equipment that is scheduled to be delivered sometime in the next 24 hours.

When I received the variance from the city I stated I was a year to a year and a half away. I am currently way ahead of schedule however I am not ready to change any target dates. I have red tape in front of me and have no idea how long thatíll take to deal with.

I already have a name and would like to put the label design out into the publics hand as a contest however the label has to be approved by the Tax and Trade Bureau. Therefore any contest would be pending their approval.
