Twin Liquors, which is headquartered on Airport Boulevard just south of Koenig Lane, is under investigation by the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) for possible connections with drug-trafficking and money-laundering operations committed by the Yassine brothers (sentenced to federal prison last year).
The TABC claims that Twin Liquors was involved in the illegal operations conducted by Yassine Enterprises, and has filed suit in an attempt to revoke the Twin Liquors permits to sell alcoholic beverages. This lawsuit, if successful, would effectively close down the entire company and shutter their 20+ Austin-area stores. Twin Liquors also supplies countless Austin-area bars and restaurants.
Twin Liquors will be allowed to continue operations while defending themselves against this lawsuit.
