Can I Purchase My Own Liquor?

Absolutely. You can always buy your own liquor. This actually allows you to save money on your bartender service. You can return any unused product for a full refund. Or, you can simply keep it for use for future parties!

 

To return to the liquor to the LCBO store, the product must be in salable condition (bottled sealed and label intact). You would need the original receipt when you do so. Aim for returns within 30 days of purchase. To return alcohol purchased at a store for a permit party, you must show the permit and a copy of the sales receipt.

 

You get cash refunds for Beer Store returns only for Special Occasion Permit (SOP returns). The product must be sealed and still in its case (if applicable).

How Much Should I Budget For Liquor?

Do you need wine and beer only? Or a signature drink as well? Do you want the frills of a full drinks menu for your guests? How many guests are you expecting? How long will the party last? What kind of party are you planning?

 

These are all questions that our party consultant will ask you before arriving at your liquor budget. Having said that, it’s impossible to predict the exact proportions of distilled alcohol, wine, and beer your guests will have at your party.

 

The next step is to plan the liquor budget for your private party based on the maximum guests will consume.

 

You can assume each guest will consume one standard distilled alcohol drink (43 ml or 1.5 oz) per hour per guest. Why base your budget on distilled alcohol you ask? Distilled alcohol is more expensive than a standard drink of beer (341 ml or 12 oz) or wine (142 ml or 5 oz).

Which Types Of Liquor Do I Need And How Much Liquor Should I Order?

We create a liquor order estimate for your planned party beverage menu. This takes out the guesswork from your end! You don’t have to worry how much liquor to order from the different types of drinks you are planning to serve.

Here’s what we consider before creating your estimate:

  • Your theme
  • Preferences
  • Budget
  • Food pairings

We will provide you with recommended bottles to execute your beverage menu. This is based on your requirements. We will guide you on how to place your liquor order.

How Do I Secure A Liquor License For My Party?

We will provide guidance on the type of permit you require, and how to secure your liquor permit (if required).

You don’t need a liquor permit for a non-public party in a non-public place with no liquor sales. But you need one if alcohol is offered for sale, or served anywhere other than in a licensed establishment or a non-public place.

 

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) defines a non-public place and a non-public party as:

  •     A non-public party is where only invited guests will attend. These cannot be advertised. There should be no intent to gain or profit from the sale of alcohol at the party.
  •     A non-public place is an indoor area not usually accessible to the public, and not accessible to the public during the party (e.g. a residence, boardroom or office).

We got you covered! Insurance coverage when liquor is involved is often an afterthought when planning a party. Why create unnecessary risk for you or your guests at your party? We are fully insured with a $5 million commercial general liability policy. This includes liquor liability coverage.
