Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Australia imports the majority of the spirits it consumes. As a result, the Spirit Manufacturing industry supplies less than 40% of domestic demand. For some products, a degree of transformation occurs domestically, particularly in the case of ready-to-drink (RTD) beverages, which compose the majority of industry revenue.

What is the Spirit Manufacturing Industry?

This industry purchases ingredients such as grapes, sugar and malt, which are fermented and distilled 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.
