A: In Florida, storing alcohol for resale involves adhering to specific regulations governed by the Florida Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco (ABT). The foremost requirement is obtaining the appropriate license based on your business type, such as a retailer, distributor, or manufacturer. Beyond licensing, considerations include zoning compliance, secure storage practices to prevent unauthorized access and theft, temperature control for certain alcohol types, meticulous inventory tracking, and adherence to responsible beverage service training for employees. Maintaining compliance with both state and local laws is paramount to avoid potential penalties, including fines, license suspensions, or revocations.
