Found 16th Dec 2017
Britons have bought more than 47m bottles of gin this year, setting a new record, partly driven by the growth of craft and premium distillers such as Sipsmith.
UK gin sales have doubled in value over the last six years, reaching £1.2bn in the 12 months to the end of September, according to the latest market report from the Wine and Spirit Trade Association (WSTA).
Sales have also grown more than any other spirit sold in UK in the last year, the trade body said, with 47m bottles sold, compared with 40m in the previous 12 months.
