“This is a tremendous accomplishment for the most seasoned of spirit producers and placing with all 3 products unthinkable for our first competition!  We did exceptionally well!”

 

The Chinese demand for imported spirits is booming and the industry consensus is that China will be the largest spirits market in the worldTraditionally, China has been a brandy market, but in recent years whisk(e)ys made huge inroads. As the market is maturing, new products including rum, tequila, bitters, vodka and the whole range of white and brown spirits are now seeing huge growth numbers.
