I received word today that S. 236, which would reduce federal excise taxes on spirits from $13.50 to $2.70 for the first 100,000 proof gallons, and a rate of $13.34 for the next 22,130,000 proof gallons, has been introduced in the US Senate. The bill has been referred to the senate finance committee. Obviously, we've been trying to get this through for a while, and we need people to call their senators and let them know how important this bill is to us. Let them know what you'd do with the money if you weren't using it to pay high and unfair excise tax rates. Maybe you'd buy new equipment. Maybe you'd hire someone or expand your building. Whatever it is, call your senators today (both of them) and let them know your thoughts. And remember: calls are more impactful than emails.
Hi folks, Our newly-formalized Minnesota Distillers' Guild is headed back to the statehouse, trying again to get laws passed to allow bottle sales from distilleries and hospitality rooms/cocktail sales. We're trying to put together a compelling case about the economic and social impact of such legislation. Given the successful campaigns in other states, I'm guessing folks have put together such information for fact sheets and the like - overall impact of bottle sales from distilleries, how sales from craft distilleries affect liquor retailers, how cocktail service at craft distilleries affects restaurants and bars, etc. Does anyone have such information? If no, does anyone have any data on impact in their own individual state? Thanks much! Joel Vikre Vikre Distillery, Duluth, MN
