Distillery Nation Podcast #55 - Chris Swonger

 In this episode of the distillery nation podcast, we had the absolute pleasure of talking with Chris Swonger. Chris is the President and CEO of the Distilled Spirits Council of the US (DISCUS) and Responsibility.org.

We chatted about his history with distilled spirits, his current role, and responsibilities talked about the inaugural Distilled Spirits Council Conference. Hot topics like the FET expiration that will affect craft distilleries here in 2 months, and more importantly what we can do to help raise our voice. Spirits United, which is a new platform that can help and focus on raising awareness on critical craft spirit issues.

We talked about the Whiskey tariffs with the EU, and his thoughts on the influx on alcohol-related campaigns that are surfacing over the last few days.
