AN  ACT  to amend the alcoholic beverage control law and the agriculture
  and markets law, in relation to the creation of a farm cidery  license
  and  to amend the tax law, in relation to farm cidery sales tax infor-
  mation return filing requirements

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Subdivision  7-b  of  section 3 of the alcoholic beverage
control law, as amended by chapter 578 of the laws of 1978,  is  amended
to read as follows:
  7-b.  (A)  "Cider"  means  the  partially  or fully fermented juice of
fresh, whole apples OR OTHER POME FRUITS, containing more than three and
two-tenths per centum but not more than [seven] EIGHT AND  ONE-HALF  per
centum alcohol by volume[, when used for beverage purposes, and]: (I) to
which  nothing has been added to increase the alcoholic content produced
by natural fermentation; AND (II) WITH THE USUAL CELLAR  TREATMENTS  AND
NECESSARY ADDITIONS TO CORRECT DEFECTS DUE TO CLIMATE, SACCHARINE LEVELS
AND SEASONAL CONDITIONS.  Nothing contained in this subdivision shall be
deemed to preclude the use of such methods or materials as may be neces-
sary  to encourage a normal alcoholic fermentation and to make a product
that is free of microbiological activity at the time of sale. Cider  may
be  sweetened  OR  FLAVORED after fermentation with [apple] FRUIT juice,
[apple] FRUIT juice concentrate, [or] sugar, MAPLE SYRUP, HONEY,  SPICES
OR  OTHER AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS, separately or in combination. Cider may
contain retained or added carbon dioxide.
  (B) IN THE EVENT THAT AN ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE MEETS  THE  DEFINITION  OF
BOTH  A CIDER, AS DEFINED IN THIS SUBDIVISION, AND A WINE, AS DEFINED IN
SUBDIVISION THIRTY-SIX OF THIS SECTION, THE BRAND OR  TRADE  NAME  LABEL
OWNER  OF SUCH ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE SHALL DESIGNATE WHETHER SUCH ALCOHOLIC
