The U.S. Craft Spirits Industry Continues Its Stellar Growth

Source: Barron’s

Craft distilling in the United States is no longer a niche industry. It’s a multi-billion juggernaut with nearly 2,000 operating distilleries across the country. Total sales and revenue, market share, investment, and employment are all rapidly on the rise and forecasts are that the trend continues in the years ahead.

For the past several years, the American Craft Spirits Association (ACSA) has released an annual report called the Craft Spirits Data Project, putting the industry’s size, growth, and breadth into context. The last report, released in fall of 2018, showed a total of 1,835 active craft distilleries as of last August, up 15.5% from 2017. In the same time span, producers saw a 23.7% growth in retail cases sold, up to 7.2 million, and a 29.9% rise in sales, up to $3.7 billion.

It’s not just craft distillers experiencing growth; large producers are also shining, and it’s part of an overall spirituous American imbibing shift. Think not only of the distilleries you may have in your local region, but to a much larger degree, the staggering number of craft cocktail bars, and consumers’ thirst for premium, limited-edition spirits releases.

It’s Almost Ready

Fermented Adventure The Podcast

It’s been almost 3 years in the making. We have visited over 100+ Distilleries in 12 states. There were long drives, planes and rental cars. There were times that we got to the distillery to find they were closed for the day for a private party (Note: Yes, we have to call first). Rain, snow, thunderstorms and even skipping meals didn’t keep us from the opportunity to check out some amazing craft distilled spirits. We have met some of the nicest and most genuine down to earth people. Dedicated and inspired. Scientist and geniuses with a still.

It started with the idea for a Facebook site to document our “adventures”. Then came the Instagram page. A few months ago we decided that we wanted to share the stories of the people that we get to meet along the way. The first interview is tomorrow at Liquid Alchemy Beverages or the LAB. You will find the podcast up and running with a week on Anchor and I Tunes and wherever else we can put it. We hope that you enjoy the podcast and it becomes one of your favorites in 2019. Cheers!
