All importers, including manufacturers and wholesalers licensed pursuant to Minnesota Statutes, chapter 340A, are required to offer for sale to all Minnesota wholesalers and manufacturers all intoxicating liquor (except wines and malt beverages) brought into Minnesota. If the intoxicating liquor is further distilled, refined, rectified, blended, bottled, labeled, or prepared in any manner subsequent to its importation into Minnesota, such importers are required to offer for sale to all Minnesota wholesalers and manufacturers the finished product. All such offers shall be made on an equal basis to all the wholesalers and manufacturers.
No importer shall offer any intoxicating liquor for sale to any Minnesota wholesaler or manufacturer without first filing with the department and mailing an itemized list specifying the price, brand, type, container size, proof, and the age of the liquor offered, to all Minnesota manufacturers and wholesalers, on a form approved by the commissioner. These prices must be filed on the first day of the month and shall become effective on the first day of the next calendar month and shall remain in effect until changed by a subsequent price filing which shall take effect in like manner.
