Irish gin is expected to go global this year, with exports set to rise significantly, according to Alcohol Beverage Federation of Ireland (ABFI), which released its outlook for 2018 today.
The group which represents drinks manufacturers and suppliers in Ireland, has forecasted that 2018 is set to see Irish gin going global, 'with exports expected to grow significantly in the US, Canadian, UK and German markets'.
The ABFI highlighted that in Ireland, the growing demand for gin has been matched by an explosion in the number of Irish gin producers, with over 30 Irish gin brands now on the market.
Many of these producers are also exporting, with exports of Irish gin more than trebling during 2017.
