Top 10 spirits trends for 2015

13th January, 2015 by Amy Hopkins



Cocktails at home

“With more consumers enjoying cocktails containing premium spirits, the growing trend of recreating premium drinks from the on-trade in an ‘at home environment’ will grow.

“Cellar Trends has found that 73% of people now drink cocktails at home and serving pitchers of cocktails is proving a popular alternative to wine and beer, as this allows consumers to batch produce cocktails to impress their friends at dinner parties.

“Consumers are continuing to spend more on premium spirits, opting for quality over quantity. This is a trend which is predicted to grow in 2015 as consumers are becoming increasingly sophisticated in their choice of spirits and liqueurs.

“Further experimentation with flavour extensions will be the next step for premium spirits moving forward.”

    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. 🙁
