Florida Craft Distillery Update

by | Jul 23, 2013 | alcohol beverage law

Florida has updated its craft distillery statute. The State defines a “Craft Distillery” as a licensed distillery that produces 75,000 or fewer gallons per calendar year of distilled spirits on its premises and has notified the division in writing of its decision to qualify as a craft distillery.

Of particular interest for those distilleries offering tours, the new law allows you to “sell to consumers, at its souvenir gift shop, spirits distilled on its premises in this state in factory-sealed containers that are filled at the distillery for off-premises consumption.”

The statute requires sales only on private property “contiguous to the licensed distillery premises in this state and included on the sketch or diagram defining the licensed premises submitted with the distillery’s license application.” Please note that the statute has additional requirements.
