Cheers to beers

It's a good time to be in the booze business. Nielsen figures show that the total off-trade BWS market was up 3.8% in the year to December 29, 2018.

Top-notch tipples

Christmas is crucial to the beers, wines and spirits (BWS) category and the week leading up to December 25 is the most important time, when 38% of December alcohol sales occur (Nielsen data).

Getting engaged

The alcohol market is arguably undergoing one of the most innovative and interesting times in its history with both big brands and smaller local producers bringing out new products at a rate of knots; and categories fragmenting into myriad niches that allow consumers to make new discoveries. An over-arching trend is a move towards drinking less volume but better quality, supported by off-trade stats from Nielsen, which show total take-home sales in 2017 were ahead by 4% in value, to just under £16.5bn, in a year when volume consumption actually fell by 1%.
