New York Alcoholic Beverage Control Law requires that alcohol be served from its original container, unadulterated. Thus, infusing spirits at the bar is not a legal practice in New York. The spirit must come infused from the manufacturer.
This presents a great opportunity for a bar or restaurant to partner with a craft distillery for a private label custom spirit. Not only will you have a signature drink that can’t be found at your competitor, you’ll have a great time developing the perfect recipe for your signature spirit, and then, the perfect recipe for your signature cocktail.
Interested? Call or stop in at a local craft distillery. Start up a conversation and a great collaboration. You’ll have a memorable experience and be glad you did.
