Global market review of world whiskies Available through bharatbook
07/20/2010 announces inclusion of latest market report on "Global market review of world whiskies" which gives a complete review of the major global markets for world whiskies.

Online PR News – 20-July-2010 – – The non-Scotch whisk(e)y market – chiefly comprising Irish, American, Canadian, Indian and Japanese whiskies – is one of the largest growth areas of the global wine and spirits industry. The performance of the three most international non-Scotch whisk(e)y categories – US, Canadian and Irish – has been more varied. Irish whiskey is currently the most rapidly rising of the three, accelerating at an impressive rate and rising by 8% CAGR between 2003 and 2008 to reach 4.46m cases. ( )

The real reason for optimism in Irish whiskey is the development of the US market where sales surpassed 1m cases for the first time in 2008. Irish whiskey remained among the fastest growing categories in 2009 despite the economic crisis. Much of this has been driven by Jameson, which has a premium price positioning in the US. There is a sense that both the brand and category is at the beginning of what could be explosive long-term growth in this lucrative market. Diageo is also very strong in the US and it is only a matter of time before it uses that distribution clout to establish Bushmills to a greater extent.

The significantly larger US whiskey category is also enjoying a period of steady growth, with volumes rising by 2% CAGR between 2003 and 2008 to reach 29.4m cases. Non-Scotch whiskies tend to be more mixable than Scotch because they are unpeated. Bourbon, in particular, has a sweeter product profile and tends to mix well with cola. This is an important consideration at a time when cocktail consumption is growing around the world.

With over 70 data tables providing brand consumption volumes across all major markets, plus interviews with the leading brand owners, this report is essential reading for anyone involved in this developing sector of the international spirits industry.
