Internet Sales & Residential Shipping

Without exception, five (5) types of Arizona liquor licenses are permitted to take orders via Internet and ship liquor to a private residence or non-liquor licensed business in Arizona. Of these five types, annual production determines this privilege. The five license types are:

  1. In-state Farm Winery (series 13) that produces less than 20,000 gallons of wine annually;
  2. Out-of-state Farm Winery (series 2W) that produces less than 20,000 gallons of wine annually;
  3. Out-of-state Craft Distiller (series 2D) that produces less than 1,189 gallons of spirits annually;
  4. In-state Craft Distiller (series 18) that produces less than 1,189 gallons of spirits annually.
  5. Direct Shipment (series 17W) that sells and ships no more than the allowable number of nine-liter cases of wine that is produced by the licensee.

Wine and distilled spirits are the two types of spiritous liquor that may be shipped into or within Arizona via Internet order. If you are shipping/receiving spiritous liquor from a business other than one of the five (5) licenses listed above, it is unlawful.

An in-state or out-of-state farm winery that produces less than 20,000 gallons of product per calendar year may take orders from Arizona residents in person, by internet, by telephone, mail or catalog for personal consumption, not for resale. The consumer placing the order, and the resident receiving the order must be age twenty-one or older.

An in-state or out-of-state craft distiller that produces less than 1,189 gallons of product per calendar year may take orders from Arizona residents in person, by internet, by telephone, mail, or catalog for personal consumption, not for resale. The consumer placing the order, and the resident receiving the order must be age twenty-one or older.

A direct shipment license that sells and ships no more than the allowable number of nine-liter cases of wine that is produced by the licensee may take orders from Arizona residents in person, by internet, by telephone, mail, or catalog for personal consumption, not for resale. The consumer placing the order, and the resident receiving the order must be age twenty-one or older.

All other liquor orders made by individuals for personal consumption (not resale) must be made through an Arizona-licensed retail business. The retail licensee will then fulfill the order using the "three tier system of liquor distribution"; the marketing structure in which alcoholic beverages are sold from producer to wholesaler, from wholesaler to retailer, and from retailer to the consumer.
