New York Alcohol Distributor Bond

How much will my bond cost?

If you act as a distributor of alcoholic beverages within the State of New York, you are required to post a surety bond. Distributor acts include:

  • importing beer or wine
  • storing beer or wine in a warehouse within NY and purchasing warehouse receipts
  • brewing, producing, distilling or manufacturing beer or wine

This specific bond type has a varying bond amount. This means that your bond amount is determined by the amount of alcohol you import, store or produce. To find out the bond amount you are mandated to post, contact the Department of Taxation and Finance.

Prior to contacting a surety expert, be sure to know your given bond amount. Providing this information can help speed up your bonding process and might lower your premium.

If your given bond amount is $10,000 or less, can issue your bond instantly. No credit check is required.

Bond amounts that exceed $10,000 are subject to underwriting, meaning that the premium of your bond is determined by the financial credentials of your credit report.
