Clark County, Nev., Expands Sale of RtD Products

Spirits-based ready-to-drink products can no be sold at one-premise establishments that are licensed to sell beer and wine.

By allowing spirits-based RtDs to be sold where beer and wine are sold, Clark County has increased consumer convenience, supported local businesses and boosted state tax revenue,” said Adam Smith, Distilled Spirits Council of the United States Vice President of State Government Relations.

“Clark County, which includes the popular tourist destination Las Vegas, is setting an example for the rest of the state by passing this ordinance and allowing businesses to serve their customers a genuine spirits-based drink, instead of a beer or wine product that imitates a real cocktail. Alcohol is alcohol, and there is no good reason products with similar alcohol content should not be sold in the same places. We encourage the Nevada Legislature to take action on expanding spirits RTD access statewide.”
