What does the decision of the Council of Ministers say?
Home-brew distillation is now allowed in Belarus. Of course, not everyone, but still the list of those who are allowed to do this has grown significantly. Now, home-brew is allowed to distil in farm stays.
The Council of Ministers passed the decision about the realization of the law of 15 July 2021 On State Regulation of Production and Circulation of Alcoholic, Non-Food and Alcohol-Containing Products and Non-Food Ethanol.
The Council of Ministers makes the following rulings in this document:
Approve the Regulations on the conditions and procedure for inclusion in the list of legal entities producing original alcoholic beverages in cultural and ethnographic centers, national parks and reserves, other objects of the Republic of Belarus in order to recreate the fullness of Belarusian national traditions.
A legal entity of the Republic of Belarus has the right to be included in the list, provided that it has carried out activities for at least one year aimed at recreating the fullness of Belarusian national traditions in a cultural and ethnographic center, a national park or reserve, another object of the Republic of Belarus.
Only 14 producers from the number of ethnographical complexes could produce home-brew earlier: Strochitsy, Dudutki, Sula, etc.
The regulation comes into force after its publication, and some of its specific paragraphs are only from July 25.
