(Interestingly, Jinro sells 47m more cases than the next-largest brand in the world, Officer’s Choice whisky, which posted 33.8m cases last year, an increase of 5.6%.) The majority of brands that top the list of fastest-growing are national or regional products, including soju, baijiu,and Indian whisky.

“Though we saw a decline in beer and wine consumption last year, brands in the spirits category continue to enjoy great consumer loyalty,” says Mark Meek, the IWSR’s CEO. “It’s particularly interesting to see the growth of gin brands, the category which experienced the largest gain in global beverage alcohol consumption in 2018.”
