§ 58-b. Retail sale of cider by wholesale licensees. 1.
Notwithstanding any other law upon payment to the liquor authority of an
additional annual fee of one hundred twenty-five dollars, the liquor
authority may in its discretion and upon such terms and conditions as it
may prescribe, issue to a licensed cider producer upon application
therefor a certificate authorizing such producer to sell cider at retail
in sealed containers to a householder for consumption in his home, but
no sale to such householder shall be in quantities aggregating more than
fifteen gallons. Revenues received by any such licensed cider producer
from the sale of cider at retail to householders under such a
certificate during the term thereof shall not exceed five per centum of
all the revenues derived by such licensee from the sale of apples and
cider during such term.
2. No retail licensee of cider authorized by this section shall keep
or permit to be kept upon the licensed premises, any cider in any
unsealed bottle or other unsealed container, except for the purpose of
cider tasting or sampling by any person pursuant to authorization to
conduct such a sampling or tasting pursuant to subdivision two of
section fifty-eight of this article, except to those persons to whom
sales are prohibited in section sixty-five of this chapter.
