Abstract

The goal of our project was to provide the owner of Amherst Farm Winery with an operable distillery design within a tight budget. A growing craft spirits market influenced the owner to pursue a new revenue stream by starting Amherst Farm Distillery, LLC, a locally sourced micro-distillery located in western Massachusetts. Through numerous distillery tours, a hands-on workshop, research, and communication with the owner and numerous vendors, we were able to design a process that will work for the owner and fits her needs. Throughout this project, we gained valuable experience by working with a client and a vendor, and gained practical knowledge associated with creating an operable design.
