About the New Hampshire Liquor Commission

New Hampshire is one of 17 states where the government directly controls the distribution and regulation of alcoholic beverages.

The New Hampshire Liquor Commission welcomes more than 12 million customers to its NH Liquor & Wine Outlet locations each year and works with thousands of on and off-premise licensees, brokers, suppliers, and business partners in its role to regulate the sale of alcohol in the State of New Hampshire.

New Hampshire has twice been named the nation’s top control state and is often cited as being one of the most progressive, customer-focused, and profitable. In addition, New Hampshire is regularly ranked among the country’s top ten retailers, beating out large national retailers.

The New York Times, Forbes, Wine Enthusiast, Whiskey Advocate, VinePair, and numerous other media outlets have recognized NHLC for its retail excellence, unique product offerings, innovative sales practices, and industry expertise.

Since the first NH Liquor & Wine Outlet opened in 1934, more than $4 billion in net profits has been raised to support critical state services including, education, health and social services, transportation, natural resource protection, addiction treatment, and prevention programs.
