Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Liquor Control Act of 1934. Sets forth additional duties of the Illinois Liquor Control Commission concerning direct wine shipments. Provides for a direct wine shipper's license. Deletes provisions (i) permitting first-class and second-class wine-maker licensees to sell wine directly to retailers and (ii) prohibiting the issuance of more than one first-class or second-class wine-maker's license to any person, firm, partnership, corporation, or other legal entity. Changes the description of a second-class wine-maker's license to allow the manufacture of between 50,000 and 150,000 gallons of wine per year (now, 50,000 to 100,000 gallons). Provides that a wine-maker's premises license shall allow a licensee who concurrently holds a second-class wine-maker's license to sell and offer for sale at retail in the premises specified in such license up to 150,000 gallons (now, 100,000 gallons) of the second-class wine-maker's wine that is made at the second-class wine-maker's licensed premises per year for use or consumption, but not for resale in any form. Requires wine-maker premises licensees and limited wine manufacturer licensees to secure liquor liability insurance. Provides that a direct wine shipper licensee may ship, for personal use and not for resale, not more than 12 cases of wine per year to any resident of this State who is 21 years of age or older, such sale to be considered a sale in this State. Requires that a shipping container used in such shipment be clearly labeled with specific language, the label being designed or approved by the State Commission. Prohibits the shipment of any alcoholic beverage to any person in Illinois not licensed as a distributor, importing distributor, foreign importer, manufacturer, or non-resident dealer or not shipped pursuant to the provisions of this Act. Makes other changes. Effective July 1, 2007.
