We’ll be toasting the success of our long-standing relationship with the Scottish Food and Drink sector at the annual Scotland Food and Drink Conference on Thursday 29 March. A range of experts will discuss the major trends in the sector, including the building of world class brands, innovation and a host of other topics.
To celebrate our own commitment to Scottish Food and Drink, we’ve also produced, in conjunction with Scotland Food & Drink, the first in a series of four reports. The first report covers global markets and key trends in the Scottish Drinks sector.
The report highlights some interesting trends beginning to take shape across the drinks sector:
The report also shows rapid growth across the sector, both at home and abroad. Gin is the star performer, growing 18% year-on-year and is making big strides within the premium brand space.
The Scottish drinks sector is growing and building for the future. There is an unprecedented level of investment in the Scotch Whisky industry especially, with 40 new distilleries at various stages of development. Exports increased to more than £4bn in 2016 to over 128 countries globally, showing the global presence of Scotch Whisky is stronger than ever.
