Registration procedures and fees

The National Liquor Authority (NLA) is a national structure that regulates
the macro manufacturing and distribution tiers of the liquor industry. As a
result it also registers and issues licenses to macro manufacturers and
distributors of liquor.

Manufacturing registration

A manufacturing license is a license granted to any liquor manufacturer
who produces volumes of liquor that are equal or exceeds the following
thresholds:
100 million liters of clear beer per year
50 million litres of sorghum beer per year
4 million litres of wine per year
2 million litres of spirits per year

Distribution registration

A distribution license is a license granted to liquor traders who distribute
liquor only to other liquor license holders like taverns, pubs and bottle
stores.
