Here is an update to ADI's Survey of Distillery Tasting Room Laws. If you know of any changes in state laws or corrections please email me at email@example.com Cheers. 2017 Survey of Distillery Tasting Room Laws.pdf
Hello, ADI is collecting information so that we have an accurate picture of different state laws that govern distillery tasting rooms around the country. Once we have all the information I will compile it into a document that will be made available for any distiller or guild working to get more favorable laws passed in their state. Please follow the link and complete our survey. https://www.regonline.com/tastingroomlawsbystate_1683647
Evening folks. Just received word that a bill to allow NC DSP holders in certain counties (those that have established a local ABC Board) to sell one bottle of product to tour goers on a one-bottle-per-year basis. Here's a link to the bill, which was presented to the governor today: http://www.ncleg.net/Sessions/2015/Bills/House/PDF/H909v5.pdf Of concern is the POS language that would require distillers who sell bottles directly to consumers to keep a database that would maintain various data points about the customers for 12 months. My main concern is privacy liability, as maintaining drivers license numbers and DOBs for customers is ripe for identity theft. On the plus side is building a marketing database and selling product -albeit on a limited scale - direct to consumers. Take a look at the proposed bill and let me know what you think. Just curious to hear some thoughts on it. Main question - is selling one bottle per 12 months per customer worth the infrastructure, in your opinion?
Is anyone familiar with where California stands today on being able to sell and ship spirits via online? The idea follows the same business model as the wineries wine clubs; allowing visitors to browse, buy, send gifts and sign up for regular shipments right to their door long after they've returned home from vacation. With California finally allowing distilleries to sell tastings at their tasting rooms, I'm sure we are a bit behind the curve on the "wine club" model. Cheers!
