Compliance is a part of the business where you absolutely need a partner you can trust, and Baril Compliance Service has been JARDESCA’s partner from day one. Whether we need help with ABC-TTB, Direct to Consumer, Wholesale or other compliance services, Baril has always been attentive and reliable.
Their work is unfailingly accurate and timely. Wine compliance and regulatory paperwork is done right the first time. I can recommend Elise without hesitation.
After a couple of early mis-starts we found Elise and her company and have been with them ever since; well into our second decade. You don’t stay with someone for that long unless you are getting good service. Ours has been great service; prompt, professional and understanding. Lots of people can execute most of the time but Elise and company do it day in and day out; period.
