Hypothetical Labeling Question

Recommended Posts

Hi all - Great forum...

Does anybody know how the TTB handles odd formulations of spirits that don't fit neatly into pre-existing categories? For instance what if someone wanted to mix vodka and rum (or whiskey) together and sell it? How would the TTB handle something like that?

Not saying I wanted to, but hypothetically I am wondering. Thanks.

There are several classes of "distilled spirits specialty" that cover these sorts of products. I suggest you download the Beverage Alcohol Manual for spirits and study it thoroughly. The complete answer to your question is in chapter four.

Cheers,

Bevlaw.com is a great resource once you move forward with your labeling project. Robert Lehrman (sp?) can assist you in getting almost any formula approved. He is the party responsible for getting the TTB to approve the first absinthe in the US. We have used him for all of our label approvals. He is both efficient, quick, and inexpensive.

If it doesn't fall under a specific category you can go with a fanciful name. The fanciful name is submitted on your formula approval. I had to submit a few different fanciful names, but now have a category of my own.
