Minnesota Alcohol Distillery Bond

Some distilleries operating out of Minnesota must abide by new surety bond requirements that were recently put in place. The new law is titled HB 1326 and requires micro-distilleries of premium distilled spirits to acquire a $2,000 surety bond if they are manufacturers/wholesalers of less than 20,000 gallons of 95% alcohol per year. Manufacturers/wholesalers of less than 40,000 gallons of 95% alcohol per year must obtain a $3,000 bond.
