British gin exports skyrocket

Tags: ,


The rest of the world has developed a bigger taste for British gin than ever before. New figures show global exports have risen 166 per cent by value since 2000.

According to the Wine and Spirit Trade Association, exports since 2010 have risen 44 per cent by volume and 46 per cent by value. The value of exports across to the USA has risen by a staggering 553 per cent in the last decade.

British spirits exports are dominated by whisky but gin now accounts for 11 per cent of the £4.9bn spirits trade.
“The exporting of British gin is increasingly important to UK exports,” said Miles Beale, chief executive of the Wine and Spirit Trade Association.

“Where others are experiencing a dip in trade, gin continues to increase in sales year on year.”
