The Resurgence of Brandy

The Resurgence of Brandy

Brandy is exploding in the American market. It may not get the popular-press attention and cultural buzz that other spirits do, but the numbers don’t lie.

It made up 5.7 percent of the U.S. spirits market in 2015 - more than gin, scotch and blended whiskey. Between 2002 and 2015, super premium bottlings rocketed up by 226.9%, and premium by a mind-boggling 340.5%, according to the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States (DISCUS).
