USA And EU Lift Tariffs On Cognac


Share on Pinterest

Just like was done last week for single malt Scotch, tariffs have been agreed to be lifted by the USA and European Union [EU].

Like the suspensions of the tariffs on single malt, the tariffs – related to an elderly airline industry dispute involving Airbus and Boeing – will only be temporary while negotiations continue.

The 25% EU tariff on US rum, brandy and vodka has been suspended, as well as the 25% US tariff on liqueurs and cordials from Germany, Ireland, Italy and Spain, and certain cognacs and other grape brandies from France and Germany.

However, the EU and UK continue to impose a 25% tariff on American whiskey, which is due to double on 1 June 1, 2021.
