TTB PROOFING VIDEO SERIES

If you are a distilled spirits plant proprietor, it is important that you know how to proof your spirits correctly. The TTB Proofing Video Series includes five short, instructional videos that guide you, step-by-step, through several frequently used proofing procedures. The videos include close-ups of techniques and processes, and explain why it is important to correctly follow all of the steps involved in proofing spirits. The videos include:

  • Introduction to Proofing
  • Proofing Spirits with a Hydrometer
  • Proofing Spirits with a Densitometer
  • Distilling Spirits for Proofing
  • Determining Proof Obscuration by Evaporation

To determine which video(s) best apply to you and the proofing process you plan to use, please watch the introductory video. We recommend you watch the videos in order.

DISASTER CLAIMS – DAMAGE DUE TO EXCESSIVE RAIN AND FLOODING IN THE SOUTHEAST U.S.

Under various circumstances, including when the President has declared a major disaster, alcohol and tobacco businesses (retailers, wholesalers, importers, export warehouse proprietors, and manufacturers of beverage alcohol and tobacco products) may file claims with TTB for the payment (refund or allowance of credit) of Federal excise taxes paid on beverage alcohol or tobacco products lost, rendered unmarketable, or condemned by a duly authorized official. Additionally, TTB may consider waiving late filing, payment, or deposit penalties if the storms directly affected your ability to timely file, pay, or deposit.

Visit When Disaster Strikes at TTB.gov/ for more information about claims, including conditions and filing information.
