Understanding Moderation

Part of responsible drinking is understanding that a standard drink of beer, distilled spirits and wine each contains the same amount of alcohol. It's not what you drink, it's how much that counts.

Distilled Spirits Council Praises Florida Legislature for Passing “Take Down the Wall” Legislation

April 26, 2017 01:40 PM


The Distilled Spirits Council today praised the Florida Legislature for passing SB 106, legislation that would allow spirits sales in grocery stores.

The legislation, known as the “Take Down the Wall” bill, allows spirits to be sold alongside wine and beer in grocery stores. Currently, retailers must segregate spirits into a side store separated by a wall, inconveniencing consumers. 

“Florida consumers want a modern marketplace where they can purchase spirits, wine and beer at the same time and same place – like in most states,” said Distilled Spirits Council Vice President Jay Hibbard. “We applaud the Florida legislature for listening to its constituents and urge Governor Scott to sign this pro-consumer legislation.”

Following Governor Rick Scott’s signature, Florida will become the 28thstate to allow the sale of spirits, wine and beer in large retail locations such as grocery stores and big-box retailers.
