Top 10 spirits trends for 2015

13th January, 2015 by Amy Hopkins

Vodka

Vodka-trendsCraft domination

“Vodka has come along way from the flashy packaging and unsubstantiated claims of the 80s. The 90s also saw a huge rise in this as well as every flavour imaginable being added to vodka .

“In 2015 vodka will find its dignity, with a few craft producers like myself focusing on quality and ingredients. We at Vestal go a little further by offering unfiltered vintages and aged varieties that have captured the imagination of the on- and off-trade.

“Finally vodka has a real chance to recapture the trust of those who have fallen out of love with it. Let’s hope the big four don’t crash this party and ruin it for everyone.”

– Will Borrell, founder, Vestal Vodka

Back to basics

“The huge variety of flavours that were introduced to the market over such a short period, such as bubblegum, may demonstrate that growth in this category was very much a trend.

“As with all trends, they have a finite lifespan and what we can see is that consumers are returning to natural ingredients, locally sourced products, and are going back to basics.”

– Grey Goose spokesperson

    Hi guys,
    can you please furnish us with details as to the Seattle distilleries releasing Islay cask aged gins this year? I have searched on summerfruitcup.com and the Washington distillers association pages without luck. 🙁

    Slainte Mhath,
