Residents in Pennsylvania need to apply for a "License to Purchase Alcohol" through the Pennsylvania licensing department. This "License to Purchase Alcohol" needs to be renewed every four years. 2020 is the current renewal period, the next renewal will take place in 2024, regardless of the date your permit was issued.

Once you have the license, you will need to apply for a "Bulk Purchase Order."

For non-tax paying, nonprofit customers or companies, an "AE" permit may be obtained instead of a bulk purchase order form. For more information contact the Pennsylvania Licensing Department.

For all other customers, a paper form for "Bulk Purchase Order" can be requested by calling (717) 772-6943, or an online request can be found here.

Once approved, this "Bulk Purchase Order" will be good for 30 days, but can be extended if needed by calling.


You may place your order after you upload copies of your "License to Purchase Alcohol" and your "Bulk Purchase Order" to the Organic Alcohol Company website. Your order may then be processed.

Some states require licensing or permitting to purchase industrial alcohol.

Our organic 190-proof alcohol is both food and pharmaceutical grade, which can require permits from either the state revenue department, the alcoholic beverage control in your state, or sometimes both (dependent on state classification).

Some states will require a simple one-page approval letter, while others may require an application that is a little more in-depth. To remain compliant for our customers and ourselves, we try to provide our customers with as up-to-date information as possible for their state. Due to frequent changes in state permitting laws and procedures, we can't guarantee that our information is 100% up to date. Please review your state information and apply for all permitting needed. Once customers have appropriate permitting, we require copies to be sent to us with each order.

This state-by-state information is for permits for purchasing our alcohol for industrial use. If you intend to use our alcohol for beverage uses, alternate or additional permitting may apply. Please contact your state for further information.
Please note that orders may be processed, but will not be shipped until proper permitting is submitted. If you have questions feel free to contact us in the office at (541) 201-1050.
At Organic Alcohol Company, we do everything we can to be aware of and to educate our customers on state and federal requirements for the legal purchase of our products. However, it is ultimately your responsibility to be in compliance with state and federal laws and regulations.
