Global whisky market: Increasing demand for Irish whiskey and American bourbon
Irish whiskey is the fastest growing category of alcohol across the globe. The increasing demand for Irish whiskey and American bourbon is expected to boost the global whiskey market in 2017. Irish whiskey held a relatively small share of the global whiskey market in 2017, however, the demand for this spirit is increasing rapidly. The smooth, sweet taste, competitive pricing and increasing popularity among women and millennials is leading to the growth of this segment.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on alcoholic beverages, “The increasing demand for American bourbon has led players in the market to increase their production capacities and set up new distilleries. For instance, the number of distilleries has increased significantly in Kentucky, US, which is the production hub of bourbon whiskey.”
