Liquor Licenses in Florida State – Which Alcohol License do you need?

If you are hoping to become an entrepreneur in the alcohol business in Florida State, you are likely going to need a liquor license in order to legally carry out your vision. In this post we are going to go over seven of Florida’s most basic types of liquor licenses.

There are three overarching Alcohol Licenses in Florida State:

  • A Florida State Alcohol Manufacturer’s License
  • This license allows you to produce alcoholic beverages within Florida State. Breweries and distilleries are common examples of establishments that have a manufacturer’s license!
  • A Florida State Alcohol Distributor’s License
  • This license allows you to sell or distribute alcoholic beverages at wholesale (typically in large quantities at reduced prices) to alcohol vendors within Florida State.
  • A Florida State Alcohol Vendor’s License
  • This license allows you to sell alcoholic beverages at retail. Restaurants and bars are common examples of establishments that have a vendor’s license!

There are four additional general types of Alcohol Licenses in Florida State:

  • A Florida State Alcohol Broker / Sales Agent License
  • This falls under an Alcohol Distributor’s License which allows you to sell or to be involved in the selling, shipping, and invoicing of alcohol to licensed manufacturers or distributors within Florida State.
  • A Florida State Alcohol Importer’s License
  • This falls under an Alcohol Distributor’s License and is similar to the Alcohol Broker / Sales Agent License in that it allows you to sell or be involved in the selling, shipping, and invoicing of alcohol to licensed manufacturers or distributors within Florida State. The main difference is that as an importer you are bringing alcohol into Florida State from outside of the state.
  • A Florida State Bottle Club License
  • This license allows establishments to allow alcohol to be consumed within the establishment, but does not permit the establishment to sell or provide alcohol to its patrons. In other words, patrons are required to bring their own alcohol to consume on a premises with this type of license.
  • A Florida State Alcohol Exporter’s License
  • This is a type of Alcohol Distributor’s License which allows you to export alcohol to be consumed outside of Florida State. Duty free shops in airports are common examples of establishments that have an exporter’s license.

These are the seven overarching styles / categories of liquor licenses within Florida State. You can expect to see another post soon which will go over all of the liquor licenses available in Florida State!
