METHODOLOGY:

This bill would allow licensed liquor manufacturers to sell and serve unlimited amounts of spirit product on their premises and at other on-premises licensed locations in the same city or town.  The Liquor  Commission reports there are currently 11 liquor manufacturers licensed in New Hampshire.  The Liquor Commission sold approximately 45,000 bottles of New Hampshire made spirits through state retail stores and roughly 6,300 bottles through on and off-premise licensees and agency stores during a twelve month period.  The Liquor Commission earns approximately $6.47 in gross profit per bottle sold.  The Liquor Commission states this bill will decrease the amount of New Hampshire made spirits it sells which would decrease liquor revenue.  However, there is no data available to estimate the impact this bill would have on liquor revenue.  Were the Liquor Commission to sell 1/3rd fewer New Hampshire made spirit bottles, then it would lose approximately $110,000 in gross profit (((45,000+6,000)/3)*$6.47 = $109,990).
