“On behalf of the members of the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States, we are deeply saddened by the passing of TTB Administrator John Manfreda. He has been a friend and colleague to so many of us in the spirits industry and he will be sorely missed. John exemplified the best in public service and will be remembered as a great steward of TTB. He always had an open door to discuss industry concerns; made customer service a top priority; and implemented the Bureau’s mission with innovative solutions. DISCUS and its members remain grateful for John’s dedication, service and support of our industry over the decades.”
