Poles usually buy one bottle of wine per transaction and spend about PLN 20 on it. These are mostly standard volumes of 750 ml or 1000 ml, which together account for over 97% of the wine sales volume.

Vodka is one of the most frequently chosen alcohol by Poles, ranking second on the podium, right behind the beer. On average, every fourth alcohol purchaser in a small-format store up to 300 m2 puts vodka in the basket. As a result, the category generates more than 8% of the turnover of such stores. A customer can choose from an average of almost 90 variants in a small format store. Vodkas in the smallest volumes are most often purchased. Almost half of the customers of small-format stores decide to buy 90/100 ml bottles and approx. 30% of customers buy 200 ml. In total, small bottles generate approx. 45% of the sales volume. The most popular variants of vodka in small bottles belong to such brands as: Żubrówka Biała, Żytniówka Czysta, Żubr Strong or Cytrynówka Lubelska. In the case of larger volumes, 0.5-litre bottles are most often bought by about 1/5 of customers going to small format shops for this product. The most popular larger bottle variant among Poles is Żubrówka Biała 500 ml, responsible for as much as approx. 14% of the category’s sales volume.

The category of whisky and bourbon in small-format stores up to 300 m2 accounts for about 0.3% of all alcohol sales by volume. Due to fairly high average prices for packaging (compared to, for example, vodka), it generates approx. 3% of the sales value. The best seller is invariably the 700 ml packaging (about 50% of whisky transactions). The 200-ml packaging has also been gaining in importance since 2018. The largest share by value in the sale of whisky and bourbon is recorded by Pernod Ricard. The most important of its brands, Ballantine’s, is also the best-selling brand among whisky and bourbons both in terms of sales value and number of transactions. The second most purchased brand is Jack Daniel’s from Brown-Forman. Pernod Ricard also leads the competition with the widest range of products – in the first half of 2020, they offered about 3.5 variants per store, other manufacturers offer about 2 variants.

In the absence of a favourite brand, consumers usually purchase another with a similar flavour (51% of indications). One third of the respondents willingly buy another brand at a similar price. On the other hand, respondents less frequently decide to move to another store to buy their favourite brand of alcohol (14%), wait for delivery (11%), buy a cheaper brand (8%) or buy another type of  alcohol (4%).
