Direct to Consumer Shipping

DtC legislation is tough. One size fits all doesn’t work when each state controls its own beverage alcohol rules and regulations. But, we’ve honed in on those elements that make the most sense in advancing DtC reform. We know our entire community — producers of spirits, suppliers, and consumers — must act to convince state legislators to enable distilleries to ship directly to consumers. Our customers matter. For that reason, we’ve built a DtC campaign and created assets to help you best message and advocate for legislation within your state. We have also created a postcard for your use at the distillery. Grassroots advocacy is key. Help us reach our goal of modernizing state laws and regulations to achieve parity with wine (which can ship in 46 states)!
