Briton sets a new Gin Record in 2017

47m bottles of gin were sold in Briton in 2017.

UK gin sales have doubled in value over the last six years, and in 2017 Briton sold a record number of bottles of Gin in 1 year. With sales reaching £1.2bn in the 12 months to the end of September, according to the latest market report from the Wine and Spirit Trade Association (WSTA), an increase of 7 million bottles on the year before.

Is the market slowing down? erm... No.

With new gins being on the market every month, the nation has a job on its hands to taste all the flavour combinations. The figures were released as a YouGov poll found gin is the most popular spirit in the UK, with 29% of drinkers voting it their favourite. Gin has leapfrogged from third place, compared with the same poll a year ago, with whiskies (25%) in second place and vodka (23%) close in third.

Gin-themed gifts available are on the rise, and have become a staple of the Birthday or Christmas present. Gifts include hot water bottles, baubles, advent calendars, Christmas jumpers, fairy lights, Christmas crackers, tote bags, stationary and even gin-flavoured cheese.
