Moreover, in the mature market consumer preference towards drinking less but better alcohol usually with higher barely and malt contents increases the demand for premium alcohols. As per the beverage Information and Insights Group, the straight American whiskey category grew 5.3% in 2018 reaching 23.29 million 9-liter cases in the US. While the Rose Category grew about 48% in the US and the Wine witnessed an overall growth of 3%. Further, the Indian Spirit sector including whiskey, brandy, rum and vodka was estimated to expand 25% to USD 41 trillion by 2022. Although, the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected the market bringing a sharp decline in the sales of the premium alcohols across the globe. Amidst the pandemic with the nationwide lockdowns across the infected countries the bars have been closed which has brought a steep decline in the sales of premium alcohols. Moreover, the US on-premise sales channel sells USD 10 billion of alcohol which after the COVID-19 and an expected ban on sit-down dining of 2 months is predicted to amount to a loss of USD 15-20 billion in alcohol alone. Moreover, the departmental stores in Japan have reported a year-on-year decline of 18% in sales in February. Further, along with the declining sales the disruption in the Logistics sector has also negatively impacted the premium alcohol market. As per company sources, this disruption in the supply chains and sapped consumer demand caused a blow of USD 285 million in sales at Anheuser-Busch InBev, a global alcohol brewer. Also, it brought a potential hit of USD 222 million in operating profits at Smirnoff Vodka maker Diageo. Hence, amidst the Pandemic the Premium Alcohol sector has suffered a major blow and would grow slightly post Pandemic.
