TTB proposed to modernize the beer, wine and spirits labeling rules in late 2018, in a sweeping 132 page document. I thought it may be useful to take one narrow provision at a time, and compare the old version to the new, proposed version. Today I will look at the long-time restriction on describing spirits as “pure.” The old version of the rule is at left, above. It’s been in place for many decades…
