The terms ""tasting"" and ""sampling"" are often used interchangeably within the liquor industry, and often incorrectly when it comes to compliance with the Ohio liquor laws. While engaging in tasting and sampling activities can assist in the education and promotion of alcoholic beverages, it is important that all permit holders understand how to accomplish this within the framework of Ohio's liquor laws and rules.
