The spirits trends to watch in 2018

2nd January, 2018 by Amy Hopkins

As one year ends and another begins, The Spirits Business predicts which trends will take the spirits industry by storm in 2018.

In 2017, we saw a rise in terroir-inspired vodkas, rye experimentation in Scotch whisky and pre-batch cocktails.

Among our 2018 predictions is a growing Japanese gin category, rising consumer interest in the heritage of Tequila and mezcal and the launch of a sub-category of coconut rums.

An increased focus on terroir, provenance and heritage will push the premium trajectory on the industry as a whole, but some category-specific trends will make for interesting changes in the year ahead.
