The Division of Purchasing at the DABS is tasked with evaluating and selecting the best wines, spirits, and heavy beers at competitive prices for our Utah customers.
Evaluating new products and delisting others is a crucial function of the Purchasing Division. This is essential in maintaining a diverse, exciting and desirable product selection. Less than a third of the products submitted for evaluation are “listed” and made available for sale to the public. Approximately 6,000 individual wines, spirits, and heavy beers are purchased annually from both domestic and foreign producers.
