    In Ohio, it's an hours thing. Especially back when the state stores were truly state stores and run by the state, they were basically open 9-5 six days a week. If you wanted whiskey and missed that window, you went to Krogers and bought the diluted stuff.

    The genuine benefit of the Ohio system, which is really the most sensible way to do it, it that low proof distilled spirits products, such as liqueurs like Baileys, and RTDs of all sorts, could be sold in the same places, and during the same hours, as the products (beer, wine) against which they naturally compete. If every state followed Ohio's lead, we wouldn't have flavored malt beverages like Smirnoff Ice.

    Seriously, add a squeeze of lemon and some ice and you've got one tasty margarita!

    A new stop for your next trip to KY Chuck ?
    That's an office. Marketing, probably. Perhaps sales. HH has a marketing office in the Louisville suburbs too. But it's enough of a facility to anchor the DBA.

    Does "Private Stock" have any legal meaning? Does this imply that all alcohol is from Saz vs some other producer (GNS)? Or is it just a throw away marketing term that is not governed by the label regs?

    It's not defined in the regs. Just a throw away.

    If you can market it, someone will drink it.
