Fresh Market Insights for Craft Spirits Owners

Are you ready to shake up the spirits game with fresh market insights that could redefine how you strategize your on-premise presence and ambassador programs strategy?

Sunday Day Drinking Opportunities

What if I told you Sundays could be your best sales day? Sunday sales are booming, up 19% from last year. It’s prime time for brunch cocktails. For craft spirits owners, this means designing specific cocktail programs and training ambassadors to push your brand as the perfect Sunday brunch companion.

Capitalizing on Daytime Popularity

Who’s ready to make daylight the new happy hour? As daytime drinking rises, especially from 11 AM to 6 PM, there’s a golden opportunity to position your spirits for lunch and afternoon sips. This shift means adjusting your pitch to on-premise accounts to highlight the attractiveness of your products during these hours.

Early Evening Sales Spike

Ever thought about the power of happy hour for your brand? The early evening is now the hottest time for cocktails. This is a call to craft spirits owners to create targeted happy hour promotions and ensure brand ambassadors are primed to recommend your products during these peak times.

Premium Ingredients and Signature Serves

How do premium ingredients turn into premium profits? With over half of consumers willing to pay more for branded ingredients and signature cocktails, there’s a clear signal to use high-quality components and unique recipes that set your brand apart. Educate your ambassadors to communicate this premium quality effectively.

Leveraging Bartender Influence

Imagine your brand recommended by every bartender… Since 73% of consumers take recommendations from bar staff, training your ambassadors to build strong relationships with bartenders is crucial. Equip them with the knowledge and stories that make your spirits irresistible.

Maximizing Menu Visibility

Is your spirit getting the spotlight it deserves on menu boards? Given that 89% of cocktail drinkers peruse the menu first, your marketing must focus on prominent menu placement. Work with on-premise partners to ensure your spirits are not only listed but featured in a way that catches the eye.

Conclusion
