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 nonperforming 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.
Idaho Liquor Supplier Representatives may submit items for consideration to the “Quick List Committee” by the 15th of the month prior to the meeting month. The Quick List meetings allow for prompt consideration of new items presented to Idaho. Quick List meetings are held in: January, February, March, May, July, August, and September.
Permanent Ready To Drink Submissions (RTD-Category 58) and Non-Alcoholic items (Category 07) will only be considered during April Quick List; Submissions and samples are due March 15th

Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day themed items may only be submitted by October 15th to be considered in a November Quick List meeting.

- 3. Items may be denied with no further action taken.
- 4. ISLD, at its sole discretion, may reconsider items at any time, including those that were not selected.

Each item may only be presented twice during a rolling twelve month calendar year for a new item listing. Non-approved new item listings may re-present one additional time during a rolling twelve-month calendar year; excluding back to back listing months.
The Supplier certifies the consumer safety of any item delivered to an ISLD distribution center. The Supplier agrees to provide ISLD a copy of product test results upon request.
Size extensions are considered in the listing process along with other new items. To qualify to present a size extension for consideration, the existing brand sizes each need to be meeting a minimum of $72,000 in sales. No sample required. The ISLD may consider a 700ml if a 750ml is not available. If both sizes are available, ISLD will only consider the 750ml.

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.
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 through a local liquor store inquiry system.
***No “speculative” Special Orders will be considered or allowed***
Upon request, the supplier must provide a Full Case Pick standard price quote form, product description and a high resolution bottle image (.jpg) must be included in the email to Special Orders. Use our Idaho Price Calculator to determine the FOB Boise.

- Your calculated Case Cost will be displayed.
National Chain mandates and Special-Order Menu items must be submitted to email@example.com with a letter from the Supplier, Broker, On-Premises Account(s), or National Account Manager via letterhead with chain account mandate details.
