Why is Utah DABC changing its distribution method for Rare High Demand products?
In the past few years, the Utah DABC has noticed certain products, particularly releases of rare bourbons and other whiskeys, being highly sought after by our customers. For a number of these products, the amount supplied by the manufacturer is very limited compared with the anticipated demand for the product. We have been asked by customers to establish a new method of distribution that allows the maximum number of Utahns an opportunity to purchase these products. For this reason, Utah DABC has chosen to distribute rare high-demand products through drawings.
