Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board Warns Customers About a Website That’s Making False Claims

Madoc

The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board is warning customers about a website that’s claiming to be affiliated with Fine Wine and Good Spirit. The website in question is onestopbourbons.com.

The PLCB in its warning clarifies that while the website OneStopBourbons.com identifies its address in the "Contact" section of its website as 5956 Centre Ave. in Pittsburgh, where a Fine Wine and Good Spirits store is located, the website is not associated with Fine Wine & Good Spirits.

“The PLCB began receiving complaints about this misrepresentation over the summer, but inquiries to the Center Avenue store about the legitimacy of the website have increased as the holiday season approaches. The PLCB also received complaints from customers who claim to have placed orders on the site and paid for product that was never delivered.”

The warning also serves to remind Pennsylvanians that only certain licensed distilleries are permitted to sell and ship liquor to Pennsylvania residents, and the PLCB is the only retailer authorized to sell liquor in Pennsylvania. Additionally, only the PLCB and holders of sacramental wine licenses, importers licenses, and direct wine shipper licenses are permitted by law to import alcohol into Pennsylvania.

Customers are also encouraged to seek out and consider reviews of websites before placing orders to help determine a website's legitimacy and reliability.

The PLCB regulates the distribution of beverage alcohol in Pennsylvania, operates about 600 wine and spirits stores statewide, and licenses 20,000 alcohol producers, retailers, and handlers.
