The craft spirit market is the domestic production of liquor. Liquor is produced through the process of distillation and fermentation. Craft spirits are produced in a specific production volume, which is usually below 750,000 gallons. To produce craft spirits, one must have a distiller’s license, specifying the production volume and independent operation, with operational control from an alcoholic beverage industry player. In the U.S., approved label by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) is required to get certified to produce craft spirits. 

The global market of craft spirits is segregated into three distiller sizes; large, medium, and small. Out of these three, the large distillers dominate the global craft spirits industry. The production volume of large distilleries varies from 100,001 to 750,000 gallons, while for the medium distilleries, production volume lies between 10,001 to 100,000 gallons. On the other hand, the small distilleries operate and distribute their products locally; and are growing at a sluggish rate due to the intense competition faced by the large distilleries.  

Furthermore, craft spirits are of different types and include Vodka, Whiskey, Rum, Gin, Brandy, and others. Whiskey, among all, is the most consumed variety of craft spirits. It is followed by gin, vodka, and rum. The U.S. is the largest market for this product, followed by Europe over the past few years. While the economically developing nations are likely to gain traction over the forecast period because these countries are not explored properly and thus, offer huge growth prospects for the players in this market.

  • The COVID-19 outbreak has affected the craft spirits market globally.
  • The lockdown situation has shut all the industries due to which the production is affected.
  • All the bars, restaurants, pubs, liquor stores, in almost all the countries have been shut, disrupting the sales volume and frequency of the craft spirits.
