Gov. Pat McCrory has signed the distillery sales bill, which will allow local distilleries to sell one bottle of spirits on premise for off-premise consumption to an individual once a year.

Said House Majority Leader Mike Hager, R-Rutherford:

“We heard from business owner after business owner across the State about ABC provisions that were impeding company progress. HB-909 includes common-sense fixes that will quickly translate to economic growth and job creation.”

Rep. John Bell, R-Wayne, said:

“Wineries and breweries are able to sell their product on their premises, allowing distilleries to do the same is a reasonable and consistent solution. Distillery owners will now have better opportunity to grow a customer base; and thus, expand their operations and workforce exponentially.”
