Connecticut DCP News: Delivery Extension for August 2022

July 6, 2022

From the Office of M. Caitlin S. Anderson

Liquor Control Division Director

RE: Delivery Extension Approved for August 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 August 2022 through September 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, August is expected to be a “buy-in” month due to anticipated cost increases for September. August ends on a Wednesday, which will make completion of the increased deliveries by the end of the month 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 August 31, 2022.

If you have any questions regarding this extension or any liquor-related matter, please email us at

The Department of Consumer Protection, through the Liquor Control Commission, oversees all sales of alcoholic beverages in the State of Connecticut.
