The Voyant Saga

Here is Bacmar’s use-up approval for Voyant Liqueur. It almost single-handedly proves it is not a good idea to print labels prior to TTB label approval. It looks painful and seems to have consumed a good part of Mr. Back’s spring and summer, from the April 2009 date of application until approval in July of the same year. The approval in all its fullness and glory, is here.

In decades past, it was relatively easy to get “use-ups” (aka temporary approvals). But it seems to be getting harder and harder. In the 1990s it was a simple matter of asking, face to face. Now it can easily take more time, money and resources than the forlorn product is worth. The Voyant approval probably shows how hard it can be. On the other extreme, this Skyy approval tends to show how quickly it can go, and then Jumbie is somewhere in the middle.

TTB’s main use-up policy is here. We like to think we’ve helped many companies avoid a Back-breaking struggle with TTB. In some situations, though, it can be difficult to avoid.

Advocaat

This fine product has eggs on the label, and in the bottle, so it comes equipped with an allergen qualification, on the approval. The above qualification says:

The disclosure of allergens used in this product is voluntary, pending final rulemaking (See Notice No. 62, 71 FR 42329). However; any reference made to allergens must declare all allergens used in the production of this product, including fining or processing agents.

And it is a harbinger of the allergen fun that is soon to commence. Soon, allergen disclosures will be mandatory on beer, wine and spirits. There is not much on the web or in the rules to explain how Advocaat should be made and where the name comes from, but the Bak’s label does a pretty good job. It explains that Bak’s Advocaat is made with potato spirits, egg yolk, sugar, vanilla and a bit of brandy.

Intoxicating Candy: Part Two

candy

In the last post we showed a couple of bubble gum flavored spirits products. Today we have a handful of other candy-related alcohol beverage products, showing that there is no shortage of candy-themed adult beverages.

Bols has Candy Cane Liqueur.

Ferrin’s has Candy Apple wine.

BPNC has a cotton candy cocktail.

Baileys has a caramel liqueur.

And Crater Lake has “Candy in a Bottle” wine.

If the adults, ID, Warning and taste don’t stop the juveniles, maybe the over $10 price will.

Allergens, Nuts and Such

Click for O'Riley's COLA

.

There is a lot going on at TTB, so it would be easy to lose track of allergens. Way back in 2005 TTB proposed to require allergens (such as nuts and milk) to be disclosed on all alcohol beverage labels. This would follow the 2004 law change for foods more generally. The final rule is due out someday soon, according to TTB’s Agenda. In the meantime, TTB is qualifying some approvals with the following language as on the above approvals:

The disclosure of allergens used in this product is voluntary, pending final rulemaking (See Notice No. 62, 71 FR 42329). However; any reference made to allergens must declare all allergens used in the production of this product, including fining or processing agents.

For those eager to get started, the 16-page proposal is here. O’Riley’s Cream Liqueur (link above) has milk products and a detailed ingredient list. DoReMi Cream Liqueur has about the same, plus nuts.
