Recent data released by Finest Call Premium Cocktail Mixes and its UK distributor Cellar Trends show the cocktail boom is set to continue into 2016 and beyond, with a number of key imbiber insights set to propel the market.

Cocktails on table

Cocktails are set to continue their upward momentum into 2016 – but what’s driving the trend?

Finest Call and Cellar Trends predict that the cocktail market will account for 10% of all spirits sales by 2020. One fifth of all on-trade accounts now serve cocktails, said Katy Carter, Cellar Trends’ research and brand manager, a figure reckoned to be growing by 2% year on year.

But as interest in creative serves filters down from high-end accounts to mainstream bars, how can businesses tap into the continued upward momentum? Where do future opportunities lie, and is there scope for growth against a backdrop of growing at home consumption?

Finest Call and Cellar Trends certainly think so, as their data presented at a recent Trends Forum shows.
