The world’s best-selling gin brands

Gin is in – you only have to look at the rising value of exports from the UK to recognise the world’s growing taste for the juniper-based spirit.

Gin exports from the UK are expected to hit £500m this year, according to the WSTA

In 2016, it was revealed that the UK exported £474 million worth of gin, smashing last year’s record, with the Wine and Spirits Trade Association (WSTA) estimating that exports will hit the £500m mark before the end of 2017.

The latest HMRC figures show £474m worth of British gin was sold abroad in 2016 – up 12%, worth £53 million more than the previous year – with 139 countries now bulk buying British gin.

Since 2012, the value of British gin exports have increased by 32%, adding the equivalent value of £227m in just five years, while volume sales have also risen by 36%. In total, 44 new distilleries opened in 2016, with 100 new licences issued in the last two years.

Solidifying the resurgence of gin, this year the rising popularity of the spirit saw it added to the Office of National Statistic’s (ONS) inflation basket for the first time in 13 years, signalling its status as a shopping basket staple among Brits.

But it’s not just the UK that is jumping on the gin bandwagon. While the UK now produces more than 500 gins, around 6,000 are produced worldwide, with the vast majority of gin producers reporting substantial growth in the past year.

With that in mind, we have rounded up the world’s best-selling international gin brands.
