History of the Distilled Spirits Council

 

In 1973, three organizations -- the Bourbon Institute, the Distilled Spirits Institute and the Licensed Beverage Industries, Inc.-- merged to form the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States (DISCUS).

Today, DISCUS is the national trade association for America's leading distillers and represents 70 percent of all distilled spirits brands sold in the U.S.

Over the years, DISCUS has served as the distillers' voice on policy and legislative issues in our nation's capital, state capitals and foreign capitals worldwide.
