Father's Day is Prime Time for Whiskey, Finds Technomic

imageCHICAGO, June 5, 2014 -- With Father's Day around the corner, whiskey could easily top the list as consumers search for the perfect gift for Dad.  Technomic is tracking ongoing growth in whiskey – particularly American and Irish selections – and whiskey continues to significantly outperform not only the spirits industry, but also the wine and beer industries in 2014. The popularity of the spirit as part of Father's Day traditions will undoubtedly add to its upward sales and volume trajectory.

"Consumers are clamoring for whiskey, and Father's Day will likely see some people toasting dear old Dad with whiskey at a dinner out or poolside barbecue, while others will present him with a gift of the quintessential American spirit," says Donna Hood Crecca, Senior Director at Technomic. "Product innovation in whiskey is ongoing, and Father's Day is an excellent opportunity to introduce Dads around the country to a new brand or a new expression of a long-time favorite."

This infographic, based on Technomic research detailed below, provides specific data points on the growth of whiskey – including trends in American, Canadian, Irish and Scotch whiskey – plus some new products and a look at how whiskey is being used in drinks at restaurants around the country.
