Sorry if its off-top here, I want to make some vodkas by my uncle's recipies, and would like to sell some , in order to research the market. I estimatye no more than 100 bottles to start with. I am located in Virginia, possibly will move to Tennessee later, what kind of paperwork do I need, and how much does it cost? Can Isell it WITHIN the state at least?How to understand new supreme court decision- can I ship it now or not? Any advise will be very appreciated, thank you

I'd suggest starting at your local state government site, and then check federal regs. Distillation without the proper licenses is illegal so you'll need your paperwork in order before you start.
