About Us

The Distilled Spirits Council of the United States (DISCUS) is the leading voice and advocate for distilled spirits in the United States:

DISCUS’ Cheers! Spirits from the U.S.A. campaign, supported by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Market Access Program (MAP) & Agricultural Trade Promotion (ATP) program, aims to educate the hospitality industry, adult consumers, and media in key spirits export markets on the taste, heritage, and style of American distilled spirits. DISCUS’ initiatives focus on the range of American spirits, but with a particular focus on the unique qualities of American Whiskeys, including Bourbon, Tennessee Whiskey, American Rye Whiskey, and American Single Malt Whiskey, which account for most U.S. spirits exports worldwide.
