Connecticut DCP News: Delivery Extension for Oct./Nov. 2022

By September 12, 2022Connecticut, Top News, Legal Matters

September 12, 2022

From the Office of M. Caitlin S. Anderson
Liquor Control Division Director

RE: Delivery Extension Approved for October 2022 and November 2022

The Department received a written request filed by the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of Connecticut, Inc. requesting permission to deliver alcohol beverage products ordered in October 2022 through November 4, 2022 and alcohol beverage products ordered in November 2022 through December 2, 2022.

The Department reviewed this request, which highlights: (1) the unique nature of the calendar, (2) the supply chain issues
presently impacting the timely receipt of consumer goods, including alcohol beverage products, and (3) the general increase
in costs due to the rising price of fuel and source material. Specifically, October and November offer “buy-in” months before
the holiday season, which is itself a period of high demand.

Because October ends on a Monday and November ends on a Wednesday, it will make completion of the increased deliveries by the end of each month more difficult. Following review, the Department has approved the request and extends it to all Connecticut wholesalers.

Please note that this approval pertains to extension of delivery only and not to the placing of orders. All orders must still be
placed by October 31, 2022 and November 30, 2022, respectively.

If you have any questions regarding this extension or any liquor-related matter, please email us at dcp.liquorcontrol@ct.gov.
