Out-of-state Producer Application Kit (Series 02)

This non-transferrable liquor license allows an out-of-state producer, exporter, importer or rectifier to ship beer, wine and distilled spirits to an Arizona liquor-licensed wholesaler. An out-of-state producer or supplier of distilled spirits products shall not sell its products to an Arizona wholesaler at a cost higher than the lowest price at which the item was sold by the producer or supplier to any other wholesaler.

Except for as permitted in A.R.S. §4-205.04(C)(9) through (G), Internet sale of liquor is not permitted in the state of Arizona. Liquor must be delivered to an Arizona liquor-licensed wholesaler, then an Arizona liquor-licensed retailer prior to delivery to the consumer.

Owner/agents of the Out-of-State Producer license are responsible for taxes per A.R.S. §4-112(B) and (C), A.R.S. §4-201(A)(5), A.R.S. §4-205.04(E) and (F), R19-1-305.

Applicants may select the types of ownerships listed in the application instructions and dismiss any language that references a bona fide Arizona resident or in the name of a designated agent that meets the requirements of an individual licensee.

Each U.S. state has a unique Federal ATF Permit # which is requested on this application. Countries outside of the U.S. may complete this section with "n/a" (not applicable).

ADDITIONAL RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES: An out-of-state producer, exporter, importer or rectifier must comply with the provisions of Title 4(Arizona liquor law) in the same manner as an in-state licensee.
