The Distilled Spirits Council of the US (Discus) showed in the American Spirits Export Report that US spirits exports totalled US$2.2 billion in 2023, up 8% from the previous year.

American whiskey accounted for 63% of all US spirits exports.

“This latest report shows that US exports are continuing to rebuild after plummeting from the devastating retaliatory import tariffs on American spirits imposed by the EU and UK,” Rob Maron, Discus vice president of international trade, said.

“The import tariffs imposed from 2018-2021 as part of two separate disputes between the US, EU and UK have since been suspended or removed, presenting US spirits producers with an opportunity to recapture lost market share in some of the US’ largest export markets.”
