More International Coverage on the Trade Tariffs

While President Trump and EU chair Junkers met to begin the process of negotiating the tariffs, Catoctin Creek received more press coverage as an unintended victim on the ongoing trade war.  Both BBC (UK) and ARD (Germany) have stories on the issue, featuring out distillery:

From the BBC article, "Now in the craft distilling industry [in the United States], we have small distillers like ourselves in all fifty states," says Scott Harris, founder of Catoctin Creek.  "If these trade negotiations go on for many months, or a year or more, then we're really going to have to re-evaluate our European strategy. and it means we may have to pull back from Europe for a while."

From the ARD article, "The difficult thing about being in the whisky business," says Mr. Harris, "is, you know, we've laid down whisky years ago in anticipation for markets for today."

Here are links to the various web, radio, and TV spots:

The BBC audio was also picked up by American Public Radio, which ran it on the Marketplace Morning Report:
