Division of Licensing

The licensing division runs under the direction of the distilled spirits and the malt beverage administrators. More than 11,000 new and renewal license applications are processed annually. This division must review applications for 44 different license types to ensure each applicant is in compliance before final approval is granted. The division also tracks every brand of distilled spirits, wine and malt beverage sold in Kentucky, as well as what territory these brands may be distributed.

** NEW ** Emergency regulations 804 KAR 4:400E and 804 KAR 4:015E were filed effective June 24, 2015.  Please see a sample of the new renewal form below.  This online form will adjust its data fields based upon the license type, and all required reporting and/or renewal requirements displayed will only be those related to specific license type.
