    I just meant that often bourbons are available in Kentucky before they are available elsewhere. Case in point, the Russel's Reserve Single Barrel was on the shelves here months before it hit most other places. So I don't believe I'd get any special treatment, just that being physically located in Kentucky would afford me the same benefits of all Kentucky liquor stores with regards to those release schedules that put things out in Kentucky first.

    You're right, the law is terrible...but I'm not willing to risk breaking it as the foundation of my proposed business venture. Just wouldn't be prudent.

    I've heard wind that TPS may not be able to do this for much longer. Nothing concrete, but it is out there.

    I know it is something the new ABC administrator wants to look at.

    There is no certainty in life gentlemen, all we can do is stock up.

    Selfishly I wouldn't mind having less outside competition. :P

    Seriously though, it should be opened to all liquor stores or none. And we sould be able to order from outside the state as well.

    Oh yeah, a small startup like FedEx is likely ignorant of the complexities of things like "shipping laws". That makes perfect sense

    they don't ship out of KY. The warehouse in Indiana is the demarcation location.

    So it's not actually transported out of Kentucky?

    Sarcasm noted.

    And that is plan B, see if Indiana is any more amenable to my business plan.
