The Whisky Industry Is Future-Proofed By Recruiting New Whisky Lovers - So Is Your Investment

Necessity is the mother of invention, and while many of the world's inventions have arisen based on need, the same rule often applies when it comes to reinvention. And when you look around the world at some of the brands that have survived the test of time, from Mercedes to McDonald's to Madonna, reinventing yourself seems to be the key to lasting success.

This also makes itself relevant when it comes to Scotch single malt whisky. The traditional clientele of this category is aging and it is necessary to attract new followers. This means that whisky producers to a greater extent must modernize and streamline their brands, and at the same time communicate in new ways in order to also be able to attract a younger audience - a strategy that in many ways seems to bear fruit. An article by The Drinks Business describes how this transformation is well underway. Here, Maria Ropero ‐ Ortiz, senior brand manager for Glenfiddich (the world's best-selling single malt Scotch whisky), argues that “Consumer perceptions of single malt whisky have been shifting over the past few years as more people enter the category. (…) Single malt newcomers today tend to be younger, aged between 25 and 35 years old, a sign of the younger demographic becoming more attracted (…). ”.

In other words, single malt (scotch) whisky, as a category, is undergoing a transformation that, in parallel with the increase in demand for the best and rarest bottles, is also attracting new whisky lovers from a younger segment. This will help the category stay current and feed the continued success.
