Liqueurs, crème liqueurs and bitters are still a niche segment of alcohols in terms of market shares. Even in the key Christmas season for this category, the sales value shares of all spirits do not exceed 1% similarly to strong spirits, this group is characterised by high sales seasonality related to the Christmas time. Most transactions with liqueurs in small-format stores of up to 300 m2 are in December, just before Christmas. The second sales peak is the week before Easter, significantly influenced by the increased sales of Advocaats, the monthly sales of which in the Easter month reaches even 100%. Jägermeister (CEDC) is the leader in the liqueur sales value in small-format stores up to 300 m2 during the holiday season – about 19%. During Easter, as compared to the remaining months, Advocaats gain higher market shares, similarly to Sheridan’s liqueur which has 15% of market shares during this period.

On Friday, 24 May 2019, the 13th edition of the Vodka Tasting organized by the “Rynki Alkoholowe” monthly will take place in Toruń. Professional and independent jurors will once again assess the samples submitted in the pure vodkas as well as flavoured vodkas and spirits categories. The winners will be awarded medals. The editors of the “Rynki Alkoholowe” monthly magazine have been organising the Vodka Tasting since 2006. This is the first recurring and independent event of this kind taking place in our country. It is also the only “blind” contest of this kind, where the jury does not know what vodkas they taste. What counts is the looks, aroma and, above all, the flavour of the product. Flavoured vodkas and spirits are also being assessed here since 2014. Participation in the Vodka Tasting is a great opportunity to evaluate and confront your own products with the competition, face other brands in the market, and winning the competition is prestige and excellent promotion.

In 2017, they were jointly responsible for 75% of the sales value and volume of the category. Throughout 2017, CEDC controlled more than 40% of the sales value of pure vodkas and similar shares in the sales value of flavoured vodkas.

Germany is considered the capital of mulled wine. Every year, approx. 50 million litres of this beverage is consumed there, thus it is a very important part of the German wine market. In German-speaking countries, the consumption of mulled wine remains inextricably linked to numerous Christmas fairs. As  research shows, it is not the purchase of gifts that is the main purpose of visitors – 59% of people declare that they participate in them because of the food and drinks that they can consume there. Mulled wine is the main one.
