Euromonitor’s Spiros Malandrakis identifies eight key spirits trends for 2014

The recent report, by Spiros Malandrakis, senior alcoholic drinks analyst at Euromonitor, highlights key trends for the whisky, rum, Tequila, Cognac and liqueurs categories, among others.

As a turbulent spirits market made waves in 2013, producers have been forecast to adopt a number of tactics to adjust to the global changes to the market.

While whisky’s verification schemes and billion pound investments will allow the category to retain the spotlight in the months to come, Tequila will venture on new territory in China and vodka will have to seek innovation following its flavoured fall-out in the States.

Cognac has also been forecast to continue to battle its decline in China, while rum will maintain a “healthy trajectory” around the world and gin will endeavour to sustain its hipster appeal.
