As liquor delivery apps face increasing regulatory hurdles, Colonial Spirits Delivers continues to offer reliable liquor delivery to Boston and beyond. The latest liquor delivery app to have a run-in with a local alcohol regulatory agency is Ultra, a national outfit with a branch in Washington D.C. Just over two weeks ago, the D.C. Alcohol Beverage Control Board suddenly handed Ultra a “cease and desist” order.
In their coverage of the matter, Reason.com wrote:
“Although Ultra partners with a licensed booze purveyor to fulfill orders of wine, beer and spirits and deliver them to D.C households, the board found Ultra was ‘soliciting orders for sale’ and processing customer payments, necessitating a license. The board’s reasoning was laid out in a March advisory opinion rendered for another start-up, BeerRightNow.com.”
