Accommodation Sales

An accommodation sale permit allows an individual or business to sell a private collection of wine or spirits to another individual or business.  A permit may be issued by the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB) to allow the sale of a private collection to a licensee, but may not be issued to a licensee to sell to a private individual or business.  Both the seller and buyer must be located in Washington State.  (RCW 66.20.010 (16))
