    Hello,
    My name is Dan. I have a friend who works at a liquor company. Currently he is in charge of mixing and making the alcohol. He has been showing a lot of interest in his job and I would like to get some info to relay to him.

    So here are my questions:

    1) How does one become a liquor manufacturer in the state of N.J.?
    2) What licences and permits are required?
    3) What steps should be taken?

    I appreciate any advice given. If this is the wrong type of forum or place for this I apologize. Thank you for your time and knowledge!

    Have a great day!

    -Dan

    Hi Dan, I'm in Ireland and unfortunately I don't have an insight into the relevant laws and obligations for your business in N.J.

    My suggestions would be to spend some time on the phone to find out what the relevant obligations are. For example you could try phoning;

    • Food and drug administration
    • Police authority
    • Local / municipal authority
    • Health board / authority
    • Alcohol industry association
    • Better Business Bureau
    • Your solicitor / lawyer
    • Free legal / citizens advice centre
    • Government business support agencies
    • An accountant.

    Many of these organisations will not be able to give you the info you need. However, ask them if they could suggest anyone who would deal with that issue, then phone them and ask them the same questions.

    Does that type of approach sound like it might help you?
