Reference: Sections 32151, 32152, 32201, and 32220, Revenue and Taxation Code.

The Federal Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) has authorized the bottling of wine and distilled spirits in standard metric sizes. Reports of California licensees must be in wine gallons. To convert liters to wine gallons for reporting purposes, licensees shall use the standards established by the TTB.

(b) For distilled spirits, to convert liters to wine gallons on any record or report, the quantity in liters shall be multiplied by 0.264172 to determine the equivalent quantity in wine gallons. The resulting figure shall be rounded to the nearest one-hundredth of a gallon.
