We are very excited to present the American Craft Spirits Association’s 2018 Annual Report. It’s been a remarkable year for the craft spirits community, with the number of operating craft producers in the U.S. topping 1,800, as reported in our annual Craft Spirits Data Project (CSDP). We’ve included many of the highlights from the CSDP in this report, which gives you a comprehensive picture of the state of the craft spirits industry.
ACSA also stepped up its government affairs activities in 2018, particularly in the halls of Congress as we continued to fight to make FET relief permanent. To that end, we launched the ACSA-PAC early last year.
We invite you to read the 2018 Annual Report and let us know what you think. Your insight is critical as we move forward as an organization and as an industry.
