Kansas auctioning off hundreds of bottles of booze

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The state of Kansas is selling hundreds of bottles of liquor accumulated by regulators on an online auction.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the selection on the online auction site includes 72 bottles of brandy, 22 jugs of vodka and 13 flasks of rum.

The liquor was collected by the Alcoholic Beverage Control from the owners of newly acquired restaurants who can’t legally sell alcohol that was left behind by the previous business owners.

The bidding isn’t open to anyone looking to stock their liquor cabinets, only holders of state retail or wholesale liquor licenses.

Kansas Department of Revenue spokeswoman Jeannine Koranda says proceeds from the auction will be deposited into the state’s general treasury.

The auction closes Sept. 28.
