KDA Wants Proposed Wine Shipping Bill Extended To Bourbon

Posted at 5:05 AM, Feb 27, 2019

FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18)– Kentucky bourbon producers say they want in on a bill that would allow wineries to ship online and electronic orders straight to the customer’s door.

Leaders at the Kentucky Distiller’s Association say the language in Senate Bill 99 does not allow bourbon producers to do the same thing.

In its current form, SB 99 would allow for each person to receive up to 24 cases of wine from a seller annually, but bourbon is excluded.

The bill passed the Senate earlier this month and has headed to the House of Representatives.
