The Ohio legislature has passed HB 674, a measure allowing the Ohio Division of Liquor Control (ODLC) to promulgate rules to allow home delivery of distilled spirits in original containers.
The bill now goes to the governor for his signature.
“The ease of home delivery — especially during a pandemic — provides added convenience for Ohio consumers and additional revenue for the state,” says David Wojnar, Distilled Spirits Council of the United States Vice President of State Government Relations. “We urge Governor DeWine to sign this measure so the Ohio Division of Liquor Control can move forward in making home delivery available to consumers.”
Home delivery is accompanied by the same safety protocols that all beverage alcohol purchases require by law, including age verification to ensure underage persons do not illegally access alcohol and prohibitions on serving intoxicated patrons.
