US: US spirits volumes see slight lift in January - figures
US spirits volumes saw a rise in January across the category
US off-trade spirits volumes rose across the category in January, with Remy Cointreau seeing the biggest lift of the major producers, according to latest figures.
National Alcohol Beverage Control Association (NABCA) data published today (24 February), cited by analysts Nomura, revealed that spirits volumes in stores in the 19 US control states grew by 3.8% last month. Sales by value meanwhile rose by 6.7%.
Diageo’s volumes saw the biggest slide, down by 1.4%, while Pernod’s volumes were flat, Nomura flagged. Remy Cointreau benefitted from a 5% lift in volumes, followed by Campari (+2.9%), Beam (+2.8%) and Brown-Forman (+2.6%).
Vodka retains the biggest share of the spirits category in the US, followed by whiskies, then rum, with Brandy/Cognac, Tequila and gin having around an equal share.
NABCA figures account for around 20% of US spirits volumes.
A poll last week among US spirits wholesalers showed levels of optimism remain low over concens around on-trade softness.
