Top 10 spirits trends for 2015

13th January, 2015 by Amy Hopkins



Cocktail recognition

“While Tequila will stay very much in favour in 2015, all eyes will also be on mezcal this year.

“Mezcal will increasingly find its way onto cocktails menus in house cocktails as well as replacing gin, vodka, rum and whisky in classic cocktails.”

–Jesse Estes, co-founder, Ocho Tequila

Wild agave varieties

“This category will continue growing, however the numbers will still be very small. Wild agave mezcals have a lot of potential at the top end of the markets, in the gastronomic scene and with connoisseurs. I predict mezcal cocktails will become very popular among the best cocktail bars in the UK.”
– Eduardo Gomez, founder Tequila & Mezcal Fest

    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 and the Washington distillers association pages without luck. 🙁
