I’d like to invest but can you give an update in construction.

Thanks, Chad! We just posted an update. Plumbing and electrical is in progress, and we expect the kitchen and bar to be completed within the next few weeks.

Hey there, I invested some money in this business because this is something that I personally believe in. With that said, I do work for a flavoring powerhouse and would like to partner with 619 to see its continued success. Is there a way to get in t ...

Hi, just one last question - I'm in and considering doing more. I'm confused about what the relationship will be between the vodka sales and the brisks-and-mortar location. I see that the outside vodka sales are not part of this offering, which is ...

Hi Alan. Thanks so much for investing, and for the great questions. First of all, of course you can give your tickets and membership to your daughter! We can't wait to meet her! And I apologize for the confusion about the sales. I can see h ...

Just wondering, what's included with the 10-person private party?

Hi Terence. Thanks for your interest in our campaign. The 10-person party is a three-hour event that includes the following: A distillery tour and product tasting for roughly the first 30-60 minutes, including passed appetizers and cocktails.

Regarding the individually sold cocktails you mention; will this note be repaid off of the units sold at this location only, does it tie to other revenue streams as well (online, external venues, catering, whatever)?

William, thanks for the question. Unfortunately, we can't sell directly online, but we can conduct presales online for pickup at the distillery, etc. As for the note, it will be paid off by the revenue generated by anything produced at this location, ...

I did my usual "Google Earth drive" around the location and was wondering how bad parking is in the neighborhood.

ISSUER
Thanks for the interest, Andrew. The street parking in North Park isn't the greatest, but it's made up for by a giant parking structure on North Park Way between 29th and 30th Streets, which is just two blocks away from the new Distillery.

Can you tell me something about the 619 branding? As a designer of 20 years (working with small businesses to Fortune 500), I find it a bit lacking. I suspect the colors fit within what is acceptable in a place like San Diego (bright, vibrant, etc.). ...

Hey Daniel. Sorry for the delayed reply. The branding is something we've struggled with for some time, and the points you've made have been expressed by others in the past. The short story is that we started on a shoestring budget and that 619 bottle ...

Hi again, quick follow-up. But first I want you to know that my daughter, who lives in San Diego, has told me that that area is absolutely "perfect" for a distillery tasting room. She's very excited to go to the launch! I did see the projections b ...

Hey Alan, that's a great question! Yes, we believe that a higher raise will actually help mitigate the repayment time, and it actually has to do with the ready-to-drink cocktails you mentioned. Let me explain. This location is licensed under the n ...

Sorry, one more: Is the revenue percent the same no matter if you raise 100k or 300k. I'm not too concerned because there is a maturity date, but are you confident that revenues will cover payments whether you have to pay back 165K or 495k.
619 Distillery & Tasting Room
ISSUER
No worries! Yes. Please see our disclosure statement for the projections. In there, we highlight the revenues and margin that would allow for this repayment.
Alan
Hi, this looks like a nice opportunity. Congratulations on your success so far. Two questions: 1. In the unlikely event that the tasting room fails will the loans here still be supported by continuing vodka sales? 2. Exactly what needs to be done ...

This is a great question, Alan. I'd also like to know. Thank you.

Thanks for the kind words, Alan. The vodka sales are held under a separate entity that is not connected to this offering, and we're building 619 Distillery & Taproom as a new business. There's a very unique and distinct opportunity here, so this will ...

Where are the sales numbers since the 2012 launch? I am interested in how well the vodka has sold in the past 5 years. I would like to see those financial statements.

Hi Lance, thank you for the question. Unfortunately, we cannot disclose financials from the other business. We have a different set of investors and stakeholders in that entity, and we are not able to share those statements. To provide some high-leve ...

I appreciate the reply. Unfortunately, I cannot invest in a business without understanding the sales history of its main product. Best of luck to y'all.
