Bourbon continues to grow in the market. Drizzy has released its BevAlc Insights’ 2023 Bourbon Forecast.

“Bourbon has been on an upward growth trajectory and continued to grow year-on-year in both volume and value terms even during the pandemic,” says Brandy Rand, the chief strategy officer at IWSR Drinks Market Analysis. “The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for bourbon in the U.S. between 2016 and 2021 was plus eight percent in volume terms and plus 11 percent in value as more premium offerings gain share. The continued rise of cocktail culture has helped broaden the category’s appeal to more consumers as well.”

“In recent years, bourbon has been one of the liquor subcategories most impacted by premiumization,” says Liz Paquette, Drizly’s head of consumer insights. “The average unit price continues to grow year-over-year. Additionally, all the price ranges from $50 and above have gained share year-over-year over the lower price ranges.”
