The measure would limit the percentage of alcohol in ice cream to not more than 5 percent of alcohol by volume, and would require the same product labeling and warning statements similar to confectionary that contain wine, beer or cider.
"The craft beverage industry has experienced explosive growth in New York and with that comes a responsibility to advance regulations that help ensure long term viability, protect consumers and provide farmers with opportunities to increase their business," Governor Cuomo said. ■
