Obama Wants To Roll Back Tax Break For Flavored Vodka, Pig Farmers Squeal

President Obama wants to tax your Stoli Razberi.

Distilled spirits currently get a tax break if they include flavors, but the president’s budget proposal does away with that. Spirits are taxed at $13.50 per proof-gallon (a gallon of 100-proof liquor), but if distillers add flavorings, they can roll back some of that tax.

The new rule would be good for Jack Daniel’s, bad for bacon lovers.
