Trade Groups Toast End to Retaliatory Tariffs

By June 20, 2022Top News

The Distilled Spirits Council of the U.S. (DISCUS) and the Scotch Whisky Association (SWA) joined to “toast the end of retaliatory tariffs” on American whiskey and Scotch whisky in trade disputes unrelated to the distilling sector. American whiskey and Scotch whisky are deeply interconnected through bilateral trade, investment flows and shared production practices. In a statement to media, the trade groups said: “Securing the return to zero-for-zero tariffs would not have been possible without the dedication and strong leadership of UK Secretary of State for International Trade, Rt. Hon Anne-Marie Trevelyan MP and her predecessor Rt. Hon Liz Truss MP, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo and Ambassador Katherine Tai. We thank them and their teams for their determination to end tariffs on our sectors. Now that the crippling tariffs have ended, we stand ready to help reset and strengthen the crucial trans-Atlantic trade relationship.”
