Tennessee ABC Sings New Tune About Sanctions against Distilleries and Wineries for Sales to Minors

03.04.15
We are pleased to report that the TABC promptly responded to industry comment about suspending manufacturing privileges for sales to minors.  We broke the news here.

The new guidance says that sales to minors may lead to a suspension of rights to sample and sell spirits at the retail store, but sales to minors will not lead to a suspension of the right to manufacture.  We applaud the ABC for revisiting its policy based on industry feedback.

Brings to mind a classic by George and Ira Gershwin, "Changing My Tune:"

Wanted a permit to make me a hermit
To grumble and glare at the moon
But I'm arranging from now
To be changing my tune


Although some have grumbled that the TABC changes rules too often, we think that revising a rule based on industry comment is a good thing.  There is nothing wrong with the TABC proposing a rule and later revising the rule to better serve the alcoholic beverage industry.
