The Distilled Spirits Council – United States (DISCUS)

The Distilled Spirits Council is the national trade association representing the leading producers and marketers of distilled spirits in the United States. Since the repeal of Prohibition, DISCUS and its predecessor organizations have advocated on legislative, regulatory and public affairs issues that impact the industry, its consumers, and its business partners in the hospitality industry. The Council protects the industry from higher taxes and works diligently to reduce trade barriers across the globe, while supporting policies that increase adult market access for spirits products, provide greater convenience and choices for adult consumers, and encourage responsible consumption.
