Hand written proof

We were told that we couldn't hand write the proof on our labels. Has anybody else had this problem in the past? if we have to print labels for each bottling of "Cask strength" whiskey it's going to be costly. 

any thoughts?

This can definitely be done. We do it on multiple products and specifically told the TTB during COLA we would be doing this according to the range specified in our formula. They do need you to put an ABV on the label when you submit so they can see what it could look like and it's size but the ABV can be hand-written.

There are several pieces of information on your COLA approved label that can be changed without re submitting your label (e.g. age statement,  proof). Submit your label with a specific proof (e.g 61 % ABV, 122 Proof) for approval but change to blanks when you submit to your printer so you can handwrite your actual proof on your label.

As Huffy said,  Proof can be changed without submitting new label approval.  The only thing to consider here is that all you proofs fall within the allowable limit,  IE you cant bottle whiskey at 60 proof and still call it whiskey,  It has to fall within the allowable limits for that type of spirt but  80 proof on one bottle and 81.5 on the next one is allowable.  You will have to keep this I'm  mind when calculating your Taxes.
