2018 Trends in the Liquor and Wine Industries - TABS Analytics

In June 2018, TABS Analytics conducted a comprehensive survey to figure out shopping patterns and opinions within the wine and liquor ("BevAlc") categories. Specifically, TABS sought to uncover 2018 wine trends and liquor trends that would be helpful to manufacturers, distributors and retailers in the BevAlc industry.

For the 2018 BevAlc study, we looked at consumer purchasing trends in the wine industry and liquor categories, including:

  • Purchasing Insights on wine and liquor types
  • Preferred purchase locations
  • Consumer attitudes on wine, liquor, and even cannabis

In addition, we've partnered with Nielsen to bring you BevAlc (Beer, Wine & Spirits) category data that you can analyze with the QuickTABS Connect™ platform. This is invaluable for BevAlc professionals in sales, marketing and general management positions.

So, for a brief overview of the state of the wine and liquor market, just read on.
