UK spirits market has never been stronger, say suppliers
The UK market for spirits has never looked in better shape, according to suppliers polled in OLN’s annual Spirits Report.
The report questioned a wide range of spirits suppliers and producers – including some of the UK’s biggest players in the sector such as Pernod Ricard, William Grant and Diageo – about all aspects of the UK spirits market, and all reported that their sales had increased in the past year.
Neil Boyd, commercial director of malts at Ian Macleod Distillers, reports a similar story. “Our single malt whiskies, the recently launched Tamdhu and upgraded Glengoyne, and premium gin brand Edinburgh Gin, in particular, have seen sales increase,” he said.
