February 6, 2014 By: Nightclub & Bar


Distilled Spirits CouncilAmerican distilled spirits exports broke new records in 2013 crossing the $1.5 billion threshold, driven by premium Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey which exceeded the $1 billion mark for the first time, the Distilled Spirits Council (DISCUS) reported today at its annual briefing for Wall Street analysts. 

“Eighty years after Prohibition Repeal, this global whiskey Renaissance is a trend that is benefiting producers, large and small, in the U.S. and around the world,” Council CEO Peter H. Cressy said.  “These export records are driven by industry innovation, a very positive perception of American distilled spirits quality and heritage, and market-opening trade agreements.”
