Distilling on Tribal Lands makes for a Stronger Economy

In 1834 a federal law was enacted under Andrew Jackson, making it illegal for anyone to set up a distillery on a tribal land. This law was put into place as a peace making effort, and it remained active until December 2018 when Congress and the president finally repealed it. Squashing this obstacle, which prevented Native Americans from distilling, created freedom, equality, as well as a better economy. In the past, Native American populations had struggled with high unemployment, but the craft spirits industry has increased job opportunities by nearly 50 percent recently. In the past two years, more than 14,000 jobs were created by breweries, wineries, and distilleries, making a stronger economy across the nation, including on tribal lands. Source:...

Canned Wine Sweeping over the Nation

The canned wine category has taken off in recent years, and has blown up similarly to craft beer.  Nielson reported that in 2018 canned wine sales were up a whopping 69 percent and the volumes were up 47 percent. Cans give wine the opportunity to enter brand new markets, which brings in a variety of new wine consumers to the market. Attendees of music festivals, beach goers, hikers, and more would rather grab a can of wine than a corkscrew and glass bottle because of its simplicity and ease. The big question is: does wine taste different in a can? Blind canned wine tastings will have to come into place to answer that. Source: Wine & Spirits Daily, January...

Can Beer Learn to Adapt to New Wellness Trends?

The 16th annual Beer Summit of San Diego has reported that low sugar, general health and, superb wellness trends are not only one of the largest themes of modern day society, but are also seriously affecting the beer market. Beer, which has been in history the most popular beverage of the alcohol category, has suddenly dipped in growth. Beer needs to step up it’s game in health and wellness, as consumers have the idea it is the complete opposite of such. Currently, about 60 percent of 21-34 year olds reported trying to drink less and 15 percent of that age group drink non-alcoholic products when out. In fact, the younger people are, the less they drink because of this obsession of low sugar, and general health and wellness. Source: Beer Business Daily, January,...

England Now Has More Distilleries than Scotland for the First Time in History

A craft gin boom in England drove an increase in spirit crafters, making England beat Scotland in the number of distilleries count. Scotland has always had the lead when it comes to distilleries because of their booming whisky industry, but now with England’s rise in gin, Scotland has some major competition. In the past year the UK recorded a total of 361 distilleries – of which 166 are in England compared to 160 distilleries based in Scotland. Most of the UK’s entrepreneurial craft spirit makers who have launched recently started by making and selling gin and many of them are now beginning to include other types of spirits. Source:...

The Supreme Court May Change the Wine Industry

Our modern society has access to almost everything via the web. We can order clothing, food, electronics, and more, from anywhere to anywhere. All we have to do is click a button and track shipments from door to door. It is an easy luxury, but unfortunately not for retail wine shops. An average consumer has been forbidden to order wine from an out-of-state source in 36 states. But, this may soon change for the better. The case, Tennessee Wine and Spirits Retailers Association v. Blair has been taken to the United States Supreme Court to focus on granting many states access to ordering wine from wherever they desire via the world-wide-web. This could definitely change the way wine is bought moving forward. Source: https://www.nytimes.com January,...
