We reveal the world’s top 10 fastest-growing spirits brands

If there was ever any doubt about the world whisk(e)y contingency’s ability to disrupt the global spirit scene, it’s been well and truly dispelled. Half of the fastest growing brands in the world fall into the category, almost double that of it’s closest competitor, vodka.

Observant readers may note that Beam Suntory’s Kakubin has lost its place at the top spot. This is due to a discrepancy in the original figures – a statement from the firm is available here.

However vodka’s strong showing also comes as something of a surprise, given its woes over the past year. Roust trio Soplica, Żytniówka – last year’s growth champion – and Żubrówka demonstrate the durability underpinning the sector, with Pernod Ricard’s Wyborowa family and Marie Brizard Wine & Spirits’ Krupnik also telling a tale of triumph over market adversity.

Cognac too is another category on the rebound, as evidenced by both Rémy Martin and Martell. After three years of uncertainty Cognac is finally emerging, not entirely unscathed but ready to flourish once more.

Click through the following pages to discover the world’s top 10 fastest-growing spirits brands, listed in order of rising percentage.
