Part of production of many kinds of liquor is an extended aging
process where it sits in a
and gains a lot of flavor. Some of the alcohol evaporates
through the wood, filling the room in which these barrels are kept
with alcoholic fumes. A visit to one of these rooms can be a
highlight of a brewery or distillery tour, as you can get a mild buzz
just from breathing the air.
What if you built a restaurant that served dual purpose as a storage
area for aging barrels? You could lease the barrels so you wouldn't
have to invest lots by buying them. My vague understanding of alcohol
law is that it pertains to drinks, not vapor, so I don't think there
are currently regulations here.
