Are licensed distributors or other suppliers of spirits and wine allowed to provide discounts to on-premises or off-premises retail licensees based on a commitment from the retailer to purchase a particular percentage of the spirits back-bar, well-drinks, wine by the glass, or any combination of these?

(1) It is unlawful for a distributor or other supplier of spirits or wine to offer a lower price to an on-premises or off-premises retailer if the retailer is required to purchase a specific portion of some or all of its wine or spirits from that distributor or supplier in order to qualify for the lower price. Such requirements include, but are not necessarily limited to, agreeing to devote certain percentage of the spirits back-bar, well-drinks, wine by the glass, or any combination of these or other types of purchases to products sold by that distributor or supplier.
(2) Such exclusive discounts are prohibited under RCW 66.28.170 and federal law 27 C.F.R. 6.72.
