British Gin exports show record high

Tags:


Exports of British gin have broken records, reaching £279m during the first half of 2018.

The Wine and Spirit Trade Association (WSTA), representing over 300 companies producing, importing, transporting and selling wine and spirits, estimates that this will be the year that exports achieve £600m for the first time.

Last year exports of gin broke the half a billion-pound mark for the first time.
There has been a surge in popularity of British gin, which has been dubbed the ‘ginaissance’. UK gin exports were worth more in the first six months of 2018 than sales for the whole of 2008, when sales overseas were worth £258m.

Britain exports around the world than it does beef, says the WSTA and exports of the spirit have increased 19% by value in the last six months.
