Navigating the US distribution system

About the report

The United States has a very complex and highly regulated system for the distribution of alcohol, which has its roots in the time of Prohibition and its repeal.

This report, prepared by our Market Insights team, provides details of the three-tier system and different state regulations in the US for the distribution and sale of alcohol, including:

  • The three tiers for the distribution of alcohol
  • The differences in distribution mechanisms between states
  • The implications for Australian wine producers

See also the recent market bulletin: Disrupting the three-tier distribution system: new routes to the USA market which looks at alternatives to the traditional three-tier system and new solutions that are emerging in market.
