HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania’s state-run liquor system is rationing sales of a few dozen products in response to what it describes as supply shortages beyond its control.

The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board notified license holders on Thursday that two-bottles-per-day purchase limits for customers at state stores as well as well for bars, restaurants and other license holders goes into effect Friday and will remain in place indefinitely.

The PLCB says “sustained supply chain disruptions and product shortages” are prompting the restrictions on certain types of alcohol. The 43 items on the list of restricted products also will not be available through store-to-store transfers starting Friday.

The list of rationed booze contains specific types of champagne, bourbon, tequila, cognac and whiskey.
