Our first episode is all about the Federal Excise Tax, which was just lowered from $13.50 to $2.70 this year. At the time of recording, the legislation had not been passed. This is an incredible opportunity for craft distillers, but it will expire in two years if we don’t do something to make it permanent. If you’re a craft distiller or member of this industry, show your support by attending the American Craft Spirits Association and Distilled Spirit Council’s Public Policy Conference in Washington D.C., on May 14-16, 2018. If you can’t make the conference, contact your senator and voice your interest in extending this legislation.
