In terms of the Western Cape Liquor Act which commenced on the 1st of
April holders of liquor licences for liquor stores, wineries, wine shops
and supermarkets may not sell more than 150 liters of liquor to a
member of the public in one day.
To do so is an offence for which a fine of up to R100 000 or imprisonment for up to 6 months may be imposed.
According to Danie Cronje, the Director of Liquor Law services at Cluver Markotter Incorporated a member of the public who wishes to purchase more than 150 litres of liquor in a day must obtain written permission from the Chairman of the Liquor Board prior to the purchase.
Only if the purchaser is able to provide the required permission may a liquor store, supermarket, wine shop or winery sell to him/her.
