In this 2017 photo provided by Golden Moon Distillery, Steve Gould poses for a photo in Golden, Colo. Before Europe retaliated against new U.S. tariffs with taxes of its own, Gould expected export revenue at his Golden Moon Distillery in Colorado to grow 15 percent to about 25 percent this year. Now he’s concerned. Golden Moon already saw an effect when then-candidate Donald Trump made trade an issue during the 2016 campaign. Gould lost one of his Mexican importers and an investor, as overseas demand for small-distiller spirits was growing. (Sounders Studios/Golden Moon Distillery via AP)
