Report description

Cachaça is the ninth-largest global spirits category at 82.67m nine-litre cases, deriving the vast majority of this volume from the domestic market, selling some 81.8m cases in Brazil in 2011. It has been widely tipped as the next big international spirits category. Much of that enthusiasm is based on potential, rather than actual, international performance to date. With Brazil scheduled to host both the Football World Cup in 2014 and the Summer Olympics in Rio in 2016, there has possibly never been a better time to build global awareness around the national spirit.


Campari managing director, South America Paolo Perego says: “We have been hearing for a number of years that cachaça is going to be the next hot category. There are some interesting things happening in export markets, although it is very difficult to forecast an explosion. Today we are operating in the reality that 98% of the volumes are consumed in Brazil. Maybe exports will eventually grow to 3%, 4% or 5% of total volume, but that is in the future. Today it is about Brazil.”

Leblon’s Luttmann sees parallels between cachaça and other rapidly internationalising categories. “Right now, cachaça is where Tequila was 15-20 years ago, and rum nearly 50 years ago. It's exotic, Latin, and a versatile white spirit. Like Tequila's margarita, there is a signature cocktail, the caipirinha, and most importantly, there is an aspirational culture and destination behind the spirit."

The question is why has cachaça made such little headway in export markets? More importantly, are the conditions for international success present and is cachaça finally poised for an international breakthrough?

This latest edition of just-drinks' and IWSR's unique review of the category aims to answer these questions and more, containing latest 2011-actual market consumption volumes by brand, domestic and export data and forecasted consumption.

Including analysis by The IWSR and interviews with the leading players, this report is the only complete research available for this fascinating spirits category with potentially huge international growth.
