Spirits in the UK

Our spirits industry already spans the length and breadth of the UK, with a new micro or craft distillery opening up every week.

The number of gin distilleries in the UK has more than doubled in the last five years and the future is bright, with spirits and cocktails now the drink of choice for women and people aged 18-24. And this success isn't just limited to the UK - spirits make up more than 20 per cent of UK food and drink exports.
