Amending a TTB Permit: Adding a Non-Contiguous Premises
If you operate a brewery, winery, or distillery, and are ready to expand your premises, it is important to be up to date with current Alcohol & Tobacco Tax & Trade Bureau ("TTB") regulations regarding non-contiguous premises.
In general, a brewery, winery, or distillery can add a non-contiguous location to their existing permit as an amendment (as opposed to submitting a new permit), so long as the non-contiguous location is within 10 miles from the original premises.
What's required for the permit amendment? In general, the Permits Online ("PONL") amendment process is fairly straightforward in this regard. To submit the amendment you will need:
1) a copy of the non-contiguous location lease or deed,
2) a copy of the non-contiguous location diagram and building description,
3) and updated bond (if necessary), and
4) updated environmental information (see TTB f5000.29) as well as supplemental information on water quality considerations (see TTB f5000.30).
Lastly, do not forget state and local considerations for this process, as they can vary considerably.
