The global category figures may not look that encouraging but a new joint-report from just-drinks and The IWSR points to better fortunes for the gin market.
Boston Beer Company’s CEO resisted getting carried away after his group’s first-quarter figures a few weeks ago. Though the firm reported a rise in profits and sales, the US’ leading craft brewer is aware of the growing competition in the segments it operates in - which include cider and flavoured tea, as well as the beer market.
After a stellar set of full-year results driven by outstanding growth for Jack Daniel's, Brown-Forman CEO Paul Varga channelled his inner John Lennon. Flavoured whiskies in the US, Varga said, will be “larger than Scotch”.
Ray Rowlands of Drinksinfo Ltd takes a trip down memory lane to look at an iconic juice drinks brand of the 1990s - Sunny Delight. He charts its progress up to the present day, including its latest venture into the energy drinks arena.
Keith Villa is the founder and head brewmaster of MillerCoors-owned Blue Moon Brewing Company, creator of the Belgium-style Blue Moon beer. During his visit to London last week, just-drinks sat down with the doctor of brewing to discuss quality issues in craft beer and what motivates him to experiment with bacon, peanut butter and chocolate. Villa also made clear why he considers Blue Moon a craft beer despite its corporate owners.

During last week's full-year results conference call, Remy Cointreau chairman & interim CEO François Hériard Dubreuil said he expected a new face to be sitting alongside him for the next call.
Keith Villa, the founder of MillerCoors's Blue Moon beer and a real-life doctor of brewing, is as close as the beer industry gets to a Michelin-starred chef.
