A new law signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo last week, will allow licensed farm distilleries to sell liquor at the state fair, county fairs and not-for-profit farmers’ markets.

This new law will help local farms to grow by providing the same access to marketing opportunities currently allowed to licensed wineries, farm wineries and farm breweries.

Also, this new law will allow farm distilleries to hold liquor tastings and to sell their New York State-labeled products at off-premise locations such as the New York State Fair, recognized county fairs and local not for profit farmers’ markets.

This law will go into effect in 6 months.
