The Irish whisky segment will increase by 4m cases from the 6.3m cases sold in 2013. The report states that the “huge and diverse” non-Scotch whisky category has become “one of the drinks industry’s major growth drivers” over the past few years, and that “future growth looks assured” for all segments, apart from Canadian whisky. The Tennessee whiskey business continues to grow, with flavored whiskies attracting new-to-category consumers.
