Cannings Butchers sells Wines and Beer under a “Minor Business Exemption” – a liquor licence exemption under Victorian State Law that applies to a small handful of business types (florists, hairdressers, butchers) where the sale of liquor is only supplementary to the primary source of income for the business.

According to the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation, to qualify, a butcher must have “as its primary function the retail sale of raw meat or fish for human consumption, but does not include where meat is sold for consumption on the premises.” Cannings Butchers upholds the following criteria:

  • Liquor must be packaged in sealed containers and supplied for off-premises consumption
  • Liquor supplied has to be wine from a single, specific wine region or any type of beer
  • Liquor must not be supplied to a minor
  • The volume of liquor supplied to a person must not exceed 1.5 litres per day.

The above criteria also apply to the selling of liquor on the Cannings Butchers online store. Any delivery orders containing alcohol require the recipient to be over 18 years of age. Please note, the same ‘ONLINE STORE AND DELIVERY TERMS AND CONDITIONS’ and ‘UNSUCCESSFUL DELIVERY ATTEMPT’ terms and conditions listed supra also apply.
