The launch of the smart phone version of LiquorandWineOutlets.com expands the commission's Internet and social media offerings, which also include an email newsletter, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
"Holiday shopping brings an increase in traffic to our website, and we are now poised to provide product info, store info and great savings to the palms of our customers' hands," said New Hampshire Liquor Commisison Chairman Joseph W. Mollica.

132 counterfeit sites seized in Web blitz
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. and European authorities seized 132 domain names in a counterfeit goods crackdown linked to Cyber Monday, the online bargain day, the head of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said.
ICE agents seized 101 domain names in the United States and 31 were taken over by officers in Britain, Romania, Belgium, France and Denmark and by Europol, the European Police Office, ICE Director John Morton said.
The sites, many linked to organized crime, were selling fake goods that ranged from National Football League jerseys and Nike Inc. shoes to Adobe Systems Inc. software, he said.
Investigations are ongoing and more sites will be seized in coming days.
In the United States, 41 rights owners' merchandise was being sold on the seized sites, Morton said during a conference call. ICE said in a statement that one U.S. arrest had been made.
