The latest figures from the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States confirm what the Aristocrat Group Corp. (OTCQB: ASCC) already knows: The distilled spirit market continues to grow. The Council announced at its annual briefing this week that distilled spirits supplier sales increased 4.1 percent in 2015, and volumes rose by 2.3 percent.
The Council estimates that overall retail sales rose to nearly $72 billion in the U.S. last year. It was the distilled spirits category’s sixth straight year of increasing its market share relative to beer.
“The industry’s momentum is being driven by market modernization, product innovation and consumer premiumization, among other factors,” said ASCC President Chris Less. “We’re working to leverage these factors to drive our company’s growth, as well.”
ASCC believes that its Ultra-Premium Handcrafted RWB Vodka brand is well-positioned to appeal to rising consumer demand for craft-style, artisanal products perfectly suited to the emerging cocktail culture favored by Millennials, in particular. RWB Vodka is made in the U.S.A. from Idaho russet potatoes and Rocky Mountain spring water using a unique four-column distillation process. The homegrown vodka brand has received high marks for quality both at home and abroad, earning well more than a dozen gold medals in international blind taste tests. It is perhaps the only American-made vodka labeled “gluten-free.”
By appealing to consumers’ changing tastes, ASCC hopes to become the next upstart spirits company to carve out a market share as demand heats up. The company is working to build a diversified portfolio of brands in order to cash in on the growth of the distilled spirits industry.
