I'm a Newb, working on a new distillery project in CO. In reading through the other threads in this section I noticed that no one addressed the largest distribution channel out there...The Internet!
So a few Questions:
Are there TTB regs against this?
Can a Distiller in a "direct to retail" state sell direct to consumers in another state via the Internet?
Having seen a couple of "Scotch" online sales pages; Is the Internet a viable channel for international sales?
Just interested to know the thinking.
Thanks in advance.

If you ship to a minor, your TTB permits are at risk. On top of that, you may find your insurance company won't permit online sales either, as they don't want to have the increased liability. Our insurance company told us this in advance as a condition of the coverage.
The alternative is to sell to a distributor that does the online sales, as they would assume the liability.
Also, I think that there are a couple threads already that address this topic.

The postmistress in our little country post office can hardly move behind her counter sometimes because of all the boxes of wine.

Yes. As mentioned above, if you sell to a minor, your TTB permits are at risk. The source of this information is my local TTB investigator.

BlueStar, when you refer to your state, are you talking IL or MI? Thank you!

I think it's a good question to ask your distributor. Usually they have a way of dealing with this. In IL Binny's does a large online ship business that they hold all the liability for. I am aware of several other states that also have a vendor like this. Once you are distributed, it's a good question that your distributor should answer.
So to pre-empt that question from Bluestar
You guys should be lit up on Binny's.com next month. Brett Has been very busy with the ADI conference and the like. It is something I will bring to him after Denver.
