Spirits Delisting Policy

The Commission approved Administrative Order 2021-10 on September 16, 2021 to update the spirits delisting policy.

  • Products will be delisted monthly for the preceding, rolling 12-month period.
  • For products with shelf prices < $100, product sales must be at least 12 standard cases.
  • For products with shelf prices between $100 - $249.99, product sales must be six bottles in a year.
  • For products with shelf prices $250 and greater, product sales must be one bottle in a year.
  • Unlimited value-added products (VAPs) will be allowed and VAPS will be automatically delisted after six months.  Vendors may re-list VAPS the next available effective date after delisting.
  • All other delisted products may not be relisted for a year.

This Order is effective immediately.  However, the next delisting will be for the period of November 1, 2020-October 30, 2021, with an effective delisting date of November 28, 2021.
