The latest edition of the Beverage Information Group’s Handbook contains some very good news for the Aristocrat Group Corp. (OTCQB:ASCC). Distilled spirits sales volume outpaced the growth of overall consumer package goods last year—it even outpaced the growth of beer.
According to the Beverage Information Group’s Handbook Advance 2016, distilled spirits grew in volume for the 19th consecutive year in 2015. All spirits categories saw growth except for rum, and U.S. spirits exports have now more than doubled over the last 10 years.
The growth in 2015 was led by premium products as cocktail culture continues to drive consumer buying habits.
“Consumer loyalty declined once again in 2015, and changing consumer tastes are always welcome to an upstart spirits company such as ASCC,” said company president Chris Less. “We are well-positioned to capitalize on the shift toward premium products with the expanding distribution of Ultra-Premium Handcrafted RWB Vodka.”
RWB Vodka, a gluten-free spirit distilled in the U.S.A. from Idaho russet potatoes and mountain spring water, is the first of many products that ASCC plans to deliver to the growing marketplace. The company plans to launch Big Box Vodka, a premium bag-in-box spirit, this year, and continues to work toward the potential acquisition of many other brands.
