Sugar limits for flavored spirits

Recommended Posts

What is the limit on the amount of sugar/sweetener allowed to be added to a flavored class of spirits? Doing some R&D recently on flavored rums and vodkas and been looking through the regulations. I know unflavored vodka has a limit of 2 g/l. Do flavored rums and vodkas have a limit also, at what point does it become a liqueur? or is the class just based on what I designate it during formula approval / Cola approval? If you have any insight or can point me in a direction. Thank you in advance!

According to the BAM, you may exceed 2-1/2%.  How much you exceed it by is up to you.  Take a look at Chapter 7, Flavored Rum and Flavored Vodka are on Page 7-7.
