The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) must evaluate the ingredients and additives of certain wines, distilled spirits, and beers before the product can be made or imported, and before the importer or bottler may apply for a Certificate of Label Approval (COLA). The TTB formula review process can be a bit lengthy and complex, failing to obtain TTB formula approval when required can result in significant delays in the manufacturing and distribution of your alcoholic beverage.
Not all Alcoholic Beverages require TTB approval. For example, beverages with less than seven percent alcohol volume may not based on their packaging and bottle or can size. We take the confusion out of the TTB process for our clients.
