The wine rectifier’s liquor license is one in very limited use. Presently, there are no active Type 08 licenses. A rectifier’s license (Type 07) includes wine rectification privileges in addition to allowing distilled spirits rectification privileges. A wine blender’s license allows most of the same privileges as the wine rectifier’s license. A wine rectifier may only deal in “tax-paid” wine, unlike a wine blender who may process “in-bond” (non-tax paid) wine. A wine rectifier’s license authorizes the person to whom issued to cut, blend, mix, flavor, or color wine upon which excise tax has been paid, and whether so cut, blended, rectified, mixed, flavored, or colored by him, or any other person, to package, label, export, and sell the products to persons holding licenses authorizing the sale of wine (Section 23372).
