New York Alcoholic Beverage Control Law

Sec. § 58-B
Retail Sale of Cider by Wholesale Licensees


Notwithstanding any other law upon payment to the liquor authority of an additional annual fee of one hundred twenty-five dollars, the liquor authority may in its discretion and upon such terms and conditions as it may prescribe, issue to a licensed cider producer upon application therefor a certificate authorizing such producer to sell cider at retail in sealed containers to a householder for consumption in his home, but no sale to such householder shall be in quantities aggregating more than fifteen gallons. Revenues received by any such licensed cider producer from the sale of cider at retail to householders under such a certificate during the term thereof shall not exceed five per centum of all the revenues derived by such licensee from the sale of apples and cider during such term.


No retail licensee of cider authorized by this section shall keep or permit to be kept upon the licensed premises, any cider in any unsealed bottle or other unsealed container, except for the purpose of cider tasting or sampling by any person pursuant to authorization to conduct such a sampling or tasting pursuant to subdivision two of section fifty-eight of this article, except to those persons to whom sales are prohibited in section sixty-five of this chapter.
