  any limitation on the volume that may be manufactured by  the  class  A,
  A-1, B, B-1 or C distillery.
    3.  A  distiller's  license of any class shall not authorize more than
  one of said activities, namely, that of a distillery, a rectifying plant
  or a fruit brandy distillery, and a separate license shall  be  required
  for  each  such  activity, except as provided in subdivision one of this
  section.
    4. Any person may apply to the  liquor  authority  for  a  distiller's
  license  as  provided  for in this section. Such application shall be in
  writing and verified and shall contain such information  as  the  liquor
  authority  shall  require.  Such  application  shall be accompanied by a
  check or draft for the amount required by this article for such license.
  If the liquor authority shall grant the application  it  shall  issue  a
  license in such form as shall be determined by its rules.
    5. No distiller shall be engaged in any other business on the licensed
  premises.  No  distiller shall sell or agree to sell any liquor, alcohol
  or spirits to any wholesaler or any retailer who is  not  duly  licensed

  retail at the time of such agreement and sale or sell or agree  to  sell
  any  liquor,  alcohol  or  spirits  to  persons outside the state except
  pursuant to the laws of the place of such sale or delivery.
