Gov. Reynolds orders removal of Russian-produced liquor from wholesale purchase list
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - Gov. Reynolds on Monday announced she has directed the Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division to remove any Russian-produced alcoholic liquor products from its wholesale purchase list.
In a Twitter post, Reynolds said the new measures further demonstrate the state’s solidarity with the brave people of Ukraine as they defend their freedom against Putin’s tyranny.
The State of Iowa is one of 17 states that can control the sales of liquor at the wholesale level. That means Iowa’s Alcoholic Beverages Division can determine the brands of liquor available for sale to retailers.
The state will list all delisted products on the ABD’s website.
