How do I get my excise tax back from the TTB? (What is excise tax drawback?)
However, when a manufacturer uses that tax-paid alcohol in a non-beverage way, then a claim for the return of most of the excise tax (known as drawback) can occur. The Nonbeverage Products Laboratory will determine if something is "unfit for beverage purposes" after a review of the recipe and formula. Certain "for example" non-beverage use cases include:
- food products including baked goods and glazes
- flavor extracts
