The Whiskey and Bourbon Distilleries industry's growth over the past five years has largely been the result of major premiumization. Consumers have experienced increasing disposable income since 2009, and as a result, many have sought out costlier whiskey brands that are perceived as being higher quality or have a greater level of social cachet. Whiskey distillers are expected to continue steady growth over the five years to 2019. Growth will be supported by continued preferences among consumers for premium whiskeys and whiskey-based cocktails; as a result, these sales will translate into much higher profit margins for industry distillers.
This industry consists of establishments that distill grains and manufacture them into whiskey. The distillation process varies and can lead to many different forms of whiskey, including bourbon, rye, malt and other styles and blends. These whiskeys are bottled and sold to liquor wholesalers, bars, casinos, restaurants, hotels and other retail stores.
