Infuse Me Baby! Tennessee Enacts New Infused Drink Law for Restaurants and Bars

04.19.14
Infused cocktails unexpectedly became headline news in Tennessee in the Spring of 2013.  The Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission declared infused cocktails illegal.  We blogged about it here.

Ozzy gets it:

Nobody hears the things I say
I guess that nobody cares
My head's so full of things
I set my mind free of them
I'm breaking the rules
 
Tennessee Hospitality Association attorney Matt Scanlan made it his mission in life to protect the fundamental right to infuse cocktails at bars and restaurants.  Matt's crusade reached its pinnacle this week with the passage of HB 2240, which officially legalized the long-standing practice of infusing.  The full bill is here.

We encourage license holders that infuse to learn and follow the rules in the new law.  The TABC has been issuing fines of $300 to $350 per bottle for violations, which can quickly add up.
