India gin25.8 million litres

A move away from local brands and growing demand for premium international spirits in the emerging markets means that India comes in 5th place on our list of the world’s largest gin markets.

Almost 25.8 million litres of the spirit were purchased in 2012 and while it is an old favourite among the British colonial set, it is increasingly available in top hotels and restaurants, such as Arola in Mumbai.

Furthermore, figures released by the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India in 2012 revealed that the sale of imported spirits in India was expected to grow 25% a year until 2015, reaching 55 million litres. Gin could therefore experience further growth in India over the next two years.
