Importer & Wholesaler Relationships (For Vinous & Spirituous Liquor)

LED Bulletin 17-02

The Colorado Liquor Enforcement Division (LED) has recently received questions concerning the Colorado licensed importer of vinous/spirituous liquor (“importer”) and how this license interacts with a Colorado licensed vinous and spirituous wholesaler (“wholesaler”) and an out of state supplier of vinous and spirituous liquor (“supplier”). Therefore, the LED is issuing this bulletin to provide guidance to Colorado vinous/spirituous importers and wholesalers, specifically concerning invoicing/payments and maintaining stock. This bulletin does not address the relationship between importers, wholesalers and suppliers of malt liquor or fermented malt beverage where the laws and rules are different.

The Colorado Liquor Enforcement Division was asked to provide guidance concerning allowed business practices for a licensee who obtains additional retail liquor store licenses pursuant to provisions of SB16-197 codified at § 12-47-407(4)(b), C.R.S.
