Residents in Virginia must go to the Virginia Department of Alcohol Control and fill out 2 permits: "Application for a Permit to Purchase Industrial Alcohol" and "Industrial Use Permitee Order and Permit for Transportation of Alcohol".

Application for a Permit to Purchase Industrial Alcohol

Industrial Use Permitee Order and Permit for Transportation of Alcohol

You must fill out both permits and send to PO Box 27491 Richmond, Virginia 23261-7491

After it is received by the Virginia Department of Alcohol Control, the Transport Alcohol Permit will be sent to the Organic Alcohol Company, where we will confirm the last half of page two on the form.

Once you have both permits back from the Virginia Department of Alcohol Control, upload the permits to your account on the Organic Alcohol Company website. Your order will then be processed.

Please note: You must then FOLLOW UP and send back a copy (or original) of the Fed-Ex packing slip to the Virginia Department of Alcohol Control at the PO box above for their records.

The process generally takes three weeks. The permit lasts one year and will need to be renewed every calendar year.

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.
