BOARD OF EQUALIZATION

Provides clarification of the definition of a "distilled spirit" in Regulation 2558 (Cal. Code of Regs., title 18, section 2558): "Effective October 1, 2008, any alcoholic beverage, except wine as defined by Business and Professions Code section 23007, which contains 0.5 percent or more alcohol by volume from flavors or other ingredients containing alcohol obtained from the distillation of fermented agricultural products, is a distilled spirit." Adds Regulation 2559 (Cal. Code Regs., title 18, section 2559) that contains the following presumption: "Effective October 1, 2008, any alcoholic beverage, except wine as defined by Business and Professions Code section 23007, is presumed to contain 0.5 percent or more alcohol by volume derived from flavors or other ingredients containing alcohol obtained from the distillation of fermented agricultural products, unless this presumption is rebutted pursuant to Regulation 2559.1." Specifies in Regulation 2559.1 (Cal. Code Regs., title 18, section 2559.1): "On or after July 10, 2008, the presumption in Regulation 2559 may be rebutted by the manufacturer of the alcoholic beverage filing a report, under penalty of perjury, with the Board stating that the alcoholic beverage contains less than 0.5 percent alcohol by volume derived from flavors or other ingredients containing alcohol obtained from the distillation of fermented agricultural products and specifying the sources of the alcohol content of the alcoholic beverage, including the alcohol by volume derived from flavors or other ingredients containing alcohol obtained by distillation."
