WHY CRAFT GINS ARE KICKING ARSE AND TAKING NAMES: BBC REPORT

BBC Breakfast recently did a special on the UK's booming gin market, taking viewers and the program's hosts through several distinct brands: Caorunn (Scotland), Warner Edwards (Northampton and voted the UK's Favourite Gin), Few Spirits Barrel-Aged Gin (US) and Sipsmith (London). Frankly, we just think it was an excuse for the anchors to drink at 9:00 in the morning. Not a bad job if you can get it!

Highlights:

  • Craft gin sales are up 49% in the past two years
  • Craft gins now claim 28% of the UK gin market
  • Premium gins are driving premium tonic sales
