Liquor Bulletin

This bulletin is to advise all liquor manufacturers and agencies of important amendments to the Liquor Manufacturer Handbook (LMH).

For the next annual worldwide production (AWP) declarations in March 2023, contract volumes shall be reported in the AWP of the contractee only and not the contractor. Sections 3.1 and 6.2 of the LMH have been amended accordingly to reflect this change.

The amended LMH may be accessed on AGLC’s website at Additional information regarding AGLC’s commitment to a modern regulatory environment that supports consumer choice, innovation and economic growth can be found on AGLC’s website at
