What is the Spirit Manufacturing Industry?

This industry purchases ingredients such as grapes, sugar and malt, then ferments and distils these to produce spirit beverages including vodka, gin, whisky and liqueurs. Industry participants also blend spirits. Operators buy glass bottles and paperboard containers to package these products. The spirits are then sold to alcoholic drink wholesalers and retailers. While the industry makes fortified spirits, it does not produce fortified wines.
