The spirits sector is entering a new golden era. Consumers are embracing the cocktail scene, where combinations are endless and a new exciting mixture is just a sip away.

Lead

We lead by formulating policies underscored by evidence-based science; supporting efforts to further reduce underage drinking and drunk driving; and encouraging moderate and responsible consumption among adults who choose to drink.

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).
