We looked through the lists of tariffs Mexico, Canada and the European Union are imposing on the United States in response to the 25 percent steel and 10 percent aluminum tariffs. And we found some commonalities: orange juice, whiskey, motor boats and kitchenware among them. So why these products? We talked with Wendy Cutler, vice president of the Asia Society Policy Institute and a former acting deputy U.S. trade representative, and Renee Bower, economic professor at the University of San Diego, to find out. Zeroing in on the whiskey business, we asked Matt Hofmann, co-founder of Westland Distillery in Seattle, to give us a sense of what it’s like for a business producing one of these products that will eventually get hit with tariffs.
