Recently, the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) announced their “victory” against the illegal online sale of liquor in Tennessee.

Five online liquor stores have agreed to pay more than $50,000 in penalties for allegedly selling and shipping liquor to Tennessee residents without valid licenses.  TABC’s undercover agents purchased distilled spirits through each of the defendants. The online businesses continued to sell liquor to residents despite warnings stating that they were violating Tennessee law.
