Monthly Pulse – June 2017

In Monthly Pulse by John Temple

In our monthly Pulse you can find and download the trends in category sales across beer, wine, and spirits from the transactions of Drizly’s leading-indicator audience.

Highlights for June 2017: Wine and spirits are continuing to steal share from beer. Compared to June 2016, wine’s share is up 5%, liquor’s share is up 5%, and beer’s share is down 14%.

Tequila (up 6% in liquor share vs. last June) and brandy (up 27%) saw strong growth at the expense of gin, which normally perform well in the summer. Rosé has experienced tremendous growth (up 38% in wine share vs. last June) as specialty beer grows as well (up 5%).
