Product Listing

Quick List

The ISLD product mix is continuously evaluated to ensure success in serving our patrons. Listing and delisting procedures are used to maintain an optimal assortment for the consumer by bringing new items to market and removing non performing items. The final decision regarding items offered by the ISLD rests with the Director.

The Director reserves the right to approve or disapprove any additions to ISLD product line.

To ensure your product is considered, please consider the following as you submit for the Quick List:

  • Ensure the cost per ounce relationship between the size presented and the parent 750ml follows the ISLD pricing guidelines.
  • In addition, if a 50ml size is available, a price quote for the 50 ml size is needed. Both sizes may be on same standard quote form in the appropriate designated columns. Please include # of bottles per sleeve and # of sleeves per case on the quote for the 50ml size.
  • Use our Idaho Price Calculator for calculations.
  • All item packets should include a standard price quote for both a single bottle pick and a full case pick FOB for the item presented.
  • For questions regarding the pricing guidelines, contact ISLD’s pricing coordinator.
  • Prepare a written withdrawal or exit strategy should the product fail to achieve the supplier 9L case forecast or the ISLD dollar volume benchmarks. See product delisting within 15 months (new items).
  • For any additional questions, please contact quick.list@liquor.idaho.gov.

Critical points to consider when presenting new items include, but are not limited to:

Consumer Demands Consisting of:

  • Consumers or Licensees request.
  • Consumers or Licensees request for new varieties, packages or sizes of existing items.
  • Suppliers’ demonstration of consumer interest in new items.
  • Items are well established name brands, with strong consumer item awareness.

Item “Fit” With ISLD Product Line:

  • The current product line has limited price choices for similar items.
  • Consumers request for more item alternatives or additional pricing levels.
  • The category has too few items to meet consumer needs.
  • The number of items currently offered matches the sales demand of the respective category.

Special Orders

An item can be added to the Special Order product line upon request supported by an identified retail consumer or liquor–by–the drink licensees.

***No “speculative” Special Orders will be considered or allowed***

To be listed as a Special Order item, supplier must provide a Single Bottle Pick standard price quote form and a high resolution bottle image (.jpg) must be included in the email to Special Orders.

All Special Order item price quotes must be submitted as a single pick item. Use our Idaho Price Calculator for calculations. All special order item packets should include a form for both a single bottle pick and a full case pick FOB for the item presented. This will ensure ISLD can make the best decision without delays of reaching back out to the supplier for a different quote.
