S.B. 259 seeks to define a new category of ready to drink mixed liquor beverages containing no more than eight percent alcohol by volume called “mixed spirit beverages.” The bill would require all mixed spirit beverages, other than those distributed by the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board, to be distributed through a licensed wholesaler subject to franchise law and in exclusive territories and imposes a tax of sixty-eight cents ($.68) per 12 fluid ounces.
