This month, tastings of spirituous liquor in state liquor agency stores will become a reality. This is an exciting opportunity, regardless of whether you are an on-premises or off-premises permit holder.

To be clear, starting on March 22, you cannot as a state agent simply open a bottle and begin letting people sample the product. There are several requirements that must be followed, and notifying the Division of Liquor Control prior to beginning the tastings is one of them.
