just-drinks, in association with The IWSR, presents this seven-part review of the Scotch whisky category. In part four, we turn our attention to the major Scotch brands.
Much as all looks rosy in the UK, the gin sector has struggled in the US in recent years. What is the segment doing wrong, in a spirits market that offers generous bounty? Richard Woodard investigates.
For the multinational spirits companies, the US is a market of vital importance. As well as being the world's largest market for spirits in value terms, the country also offers relative reliability, in terms of its economy, its regulatory environment and its consumption trends. Most importantly, the US offers growth.
Scotch whisky producers may be agonising over whether flavoured variants offer an effective means of recruiting new consumers and driving growth, but their counterparts on the other side of the Atlantic have no such qualms. Indeed, it is the success that flavoured US whiskey brands and spiced rums have had that has prompted Scotch companies to try the flavoured route, even though they are not permitted to call such products 'Scotch whisky'.
In the second part of just-drinks' interview with Beam Suntory's Europe, Middle East & Africa head, Albert Baladi talks about the company's gin presence, the Africa opportunity and the Travel Retail landscape.
Formed just under a year ago, Beam Suntory is a “global whisk(e)y powerhouse,” in the words of Albert Baladi, the unit's Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) head. But, how have things progressed since Suntory's $16bn takeover of Beam Inc? What brands and regions are shining bright and where are the emerging opportunities? Here, just-drinks catches up with Baladi for his take on the present and the future for Beam Suntory.
