For the purpose of comparative analysis, the commissioner may direct that samples of distilled liquors, wines, and malt beverages be taken from shipments arriving in the state or from warehouse stocks within the state, and the analysis of the samples shall be made by a chemist designated by the commissioner.
In the event that the commissioner finds the analysis of samples taken from shipments or warehouse stocks are not identically comparable to the labeling thereof and for malt beverages samples of any brand originally submitted by the brand owner to the commissioner, the discrepancy is valid grounds for the seizure and confiscation of the shipments or warehouse stock and any further importation or sale of the brand or brands is prohibited within the state.
