he top-selling brand in the world, which is also the product that added the most cases to its total volume last year, was Korea’s Jinro soju, growing 6.4% to a total of 80.9 million cases. Interestingly, Jinro sells 47 million more cases than the next-largest brand in the world, Officer’s Choice whisky, which posted 33.8 million cases last year, an increase of 5.6%. The majority of brands that top the list of fastest-growing are national or regional products, including soju, baijiu, and Indian whisky. “Though we saw a decline in beer and wine consumption last year, brands in the spirits category continue to enjoy great consumer loyalty,” said IWSR CEO Mark Meek. “It’s particularly interesting to see the growth of gin brands, the category

which experienced the largest gain in global beverage alcohol consumption in 2018.” The world’s top 9 gin brands – ranked by absolute volume growth: 1. Gordon’s Gin 2. G.S.M Blue Gin 3. San Miguel Gin 4. Tanqueray Gin 5. Bombay Gin 6. Beefeater Gin 7. Best Gin 8. Old Buck Gin 9. Hendrick’s Gin

THE TOP GLOBAL SPIRITS BRANDS Gordon’s Gin was also the top ranking global spirits brand on the IWSR Top 100 for absolute volume growth. The Diageo brand came in at No.13, which was up 27.8% year-on-year,

making it the fastest-rising global brand. Gordon’s Pink Gin recently broke the million-case barrier less than two years since its launch after selling 1.21million nine-litre cases in 2018. Kathy Parker, Diageo’s senior vice president of portfolio Scotch, Haig Club, premium core gins, Captain Morgan and Latin rum, told Spirits Business: “Pink has been a runaway success. We’ve taken just over a year to get to a million cases where it’s taken other gin brands 20 years. It’s an indication of how massive Pink has been.” Other global highlights in the top 30 were Tito’s Vodka at no.14, up 18.6%; then Aperol at No.21, up 22.6%; Jim Beam at No.24, up 9.5%; and Johnnie Walker at no.30, up 3.6%.

f there is anything we realised most from this unprecedented pandemic, it is the spirit of resilience and our capability as a business to adapt to a whole new world. Nothing could have prepared us more for the augmented pace of change we experienced at the height of COVID-19; if anything we should all give ourselves credit for the winged response we had to effect with extremely restricted alternatives available. At ILG, our priority was, is and will be the health and ongoing safety of our staff, members and stakeholders. We are very grateful to our staff for their understanding and commitment in maintaining a ‘business as usual’ approach in such times of uncertainty. Work from home arrangements could not apply to all with our ‘frontline’ teams required to be on-site to allow us to service our members’ needs and increased expectations, as well as respond to varying calls of help in support of their local communities. Evidently, the ever-growing presence of online shopping has only strengthened as it became a perfect fit to the new norm we are experiencing. ILG has had to fast track our fully integrated e-commerce solution to allow our members to compete in what is becoming a saturated online retail market and satisfy the behavioural shopping changes that are expected to increase the demand for online resources. ‘Get Digital with ILG’ launched last week with our very own The Liquor Coop Bacchus Marsh online store. We have about a dozen member stores in testing mode due to go live by the end of June. The sales team is in discussions with many more members who are being assessed for integration compatibility to ensure a seamless facilitation and activation. The ILG online platform will cater to click and collect, home delivery and offer a rewards program for continued patronage.

We are very excited about this progress and the benefits our members will realise. As a precautionary measure, most of ILG’s let’s get together events 2020 have been rescheduled for next year. Our focus for the remainder of this year will be all about recovery plans as the world faces a new reality. Our priority is to secure as much insight and monitor trade shifts and spending implications to keep our members abreast and relevant with current market developments. Our goal remains members’ longevity and helping prepare them to meet the changing needs of consumers. As we continue to ease our way back to familiar grounds, the best we can do is continue the good work and contribution we have extended the authorities in keeping each other safe.

he overall size of Liquor Barons has increased over the last twelve months, now with over 80 stores across Western Australia. The group is performing well and we are pleased to be able to say that the Liquor barons offer continues to resonate with consumers and is the banner group that outperforms the market. Our performance in like for like sales each year, has meant more and more well-run independent stores are showing interest in joining our group. The Liquor Barons brand itself is strong with consumers allowing our members to be more profitable, attaining higher margins and developing more customer loyalty. We also focus on flexibility for our members – a key point in making sure we can service the local community in a way that only a true local can. We are aware that what works in one suburb may not work in

12|drinks guide

another. Our model allows for this resulting in a better ranged liquor store for the local community and generally a better offer. At our group conference last year, we outlined our Vision 2020 plan, which incorporated upscaling our IT infrastructure, leveraging our 110,000 members in the loyalty program, and working on our data offer through a secondary dashboard, called “Board”. Our loyalty program is pretty-exciting too, which we’re renaming “Barons Locals”. It’s aligned with a new phone based app for members and a new website, which you’ll see in market in September. Adding to that is an ultra-convenient delivery model for those stores that want it. Again, flexibility is essential for our locally run stores, as we develop the integration of our customers, stores, head office, suppliers and wholesale partner, into a single database.

When it comes to the liquor game, Lou has it wrapped up tighter than a Cuban cigar. Whether you come in for a bottle of wine or to have chat & cappuccino, Lou will look after you. On a Thursday afternoon the annoying drone of a hipster talking shit about wine rings out through the shop. A man whose top-knot appears to be trying to communicate with his home planet of Wanktopia is at the tastings table. “Oh ma gawd darling, refrigerated Sav Blanc? Should be far warmer, I would know, I’ve been to France twice” The pretentious gourmand is an unfortunate casualty of gentrification, an ever creeping presence in suburban bottle shops. Lou signals for a manager to talk to him, “please educate our friend over there, a Sauvignon Blanc is a wine best served cold”.

A few hours pass and a FIFO worker blows in like a Pilbara cyclone. He has the undeniable thirst of a man eager to throw a handful of pineapples into the blender of hedonism and get juiced up. The man is loudly serenading the store with an ode to his own spending power, “does this $200 one go orright with coke or nah? Moiggght just go the Makers Mark ay”. Like Natalie Imbruglia with one ply toilet paper he is torn. How one man can sound like an entire wetmess at an end of child maintenance payments party is a mystery. Nevertheless, the noise is interfering with a meeting Lou is having. He gestures for his manager to approach, “this man has no respect, I want you to make him an offer that he cannot refuse”.

A dramatic pause falls over the meeting room. The manager nods, “yes, sir”. He knows what must be done. The manager approaches man, “I see you’re looking at that Glenfiddich 21 year, fantastic Scotch, best served neat. Although, I’ve been instructed to make you an offer. Buy both bottles and we’ll throw in this Jim Beam promotional cool bag?” Ah, alcohol related paraphernalia is the kryptonite of the bogan. The man appears hypnotised by the free bag and as predicted by Lou, he is unable to refuse the offer. “DEAL mate”. Peace falls over the store, Lou has restored balance. @belltowertimes

020 is one for the history books, that’s for sure. With our on-premise venues forced to close their doors across the country, Bottle shops have played an essential role in sustaining a level of normality in our local communities. As a business, we have been doing everything in our power to support our members and customers by maintaining our best practice service standard, rapidly respond to the schizophrenic shopping behaviour and adapt to the turbulent trading environment. The impact of COVID-19 on the retail side of our business has been enormous. We saw customers buying less per shop but spending more and shopping more often. Looking at March through to May, our sales grew +21%, transactions +6% and average spend +14% like for like. Rewards Members played a key part in driving businesses by shopping 38% more frequently this year compared to year ago. Currently we have over 567,000 rewards members and recruiting +10,500 each month. The agility within the business to react and adapt, reflects our positive growth. Our mission is to ensure we are providing industry leading solutions to our members in this unpredictable market. This includes accelerating the launch of our digital commerce strategy. Within 4 weeks, we have successfully onboarded 40 outlets nationally to our platform and continue to work down the line-up as quickly as we can. We have designed an intense National Digital Strategy utilising local area marketing technology, tailored to amplify

14|drinks guide

our online platform & support our outlets with best practice YouTube, Facebook and Instagram advertising, Search Engine Optimisation, and real time analytics. This is an omni channel approach which will not only enhance our bricks and mortar retail stores but also increase our online presence and amplify the Liquor Legends brand in its entirety. Each campaign is created by the Liquor Legends team with the support of our preferred suppliers, which will be designed to reach thousands of potential customers around our store’s location to deliver meaningful results for their business. Continuing on our mission to provide value to our outlets business, our new marketing tool will help activate the valuable audience in close proximity to our stores. The tool will raise awareness of our brand & current catalogue offers, to keep our stores top-ofmind and provide a new channel to drive sales. All campaigns will be launched from the national Liquor Legends Facebook and Instagram page each month aligned with our new financial year promotional program. Our strategy is only in its infancy and I warn you… It’s about to get crazy! Watch this space. Our business is emerging from lockdown stronger than ever with new facets of our business being realised which never existed before. Building on the success we have had with our new digital marketing tool; we have also tailored a one-stop shop on-premise reopening package for any venue to take advantage of. The package

includes a 4-week intense digital strategy using social media, search engine marketing & EDM communications tailored to the specific venues to re-engage and encourage foot traffic back through their doors. The launch and exposure of our new shoppable platform has also managed to secure new business with Sun Hotel & McGuire’s group joining our legendary family. We are extremely proud of the results thus far and are pleased to be able to offer profitable solutions to our members retail business. Safe to say our new financial year goals are bigger than ever but with a clear and controlled strategy! We have pressed our thumbs on the green button which means there is no turning back.

s the director of the Champagne Bureau I am fortunate to have a mission to communicate my passion and knowledge of Champagne to Australian wine professionals, students and media on behalf of Comité Champagne which is the trade organisation that represents the 16 000 growers, 140 co-operatives and 360 Houses of Champagne. Our main objective for the Champagne Bureau in 2020 is to provide a comprehensive range of high-quality Champagne education solutions for professionals working in our

market. The foundation of our strategy this year is the launch of an online platform created by a specialist wine education department within Comité Champagne based in Epernay. The Champagne-MOOC or Massive Open Online Course [www.champagne-mooc. com] is an online series of video tutorials and webinars about Champagne that are easily accessible from any video playing device including a smart-phone. The course is in itself a ‘virtual tour’ of the Champagne region and modules include a seasonal and year-long review of the work that goes on in

the vineyard and the cellars of Champagne as well as the history, economy and business of region. Each of the tutorials is presented by key players from the Champagne industry and a certificate is available for download on completion of the premium course. To support the online Champagne education, we are also scheduling a national series of Champagne workshops aimed at industry professionals for them to taste and explore the diversity of Champagne wines. These workshops have proved to be very popular and after the lockdown crisis of 2020 we look forward to presenting Champagne in a safe environment with an interesting format that will showcase an exciting selection of Champagne styles and cuvees. Finally, we have developed a structured Champagne education session tailored to suit many types of Australian business, from retail and online wine sales teams to hotels, restaurants and bars. These sessions are for smaller groups, both experienced and inexperienced, and present an introduction to the Champagne AOC, explaining unique Champagne terminology to show the best practices for young hospitality and wine trade workers how to successfully sell Champagne to their customers. Australia is a dynamic and important market for Champagne, and all of our activities are structured to assist professionals in our market approach Champagne sales with confidence. Contact Champagne Bureau directly for dates and locations of the Champagne workshops as places are limited and strictly RSVP only - info@champagne.com.au

t has been a year of positive transformation for Accolade Wines, with a new CEO at the helm in Robert Foye - formerly of Treasury Wines Estates and an experienced veteran of the FMCG sector – and the arrival of Andrew Clarke from Diageo to oversee the company’s operations in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific. At a strategic level, we have continued on our growth pathways of expansion in selected markets such as Asia (particularly in China), leveraging our eight key ‘global’ brands with renewed ambition for growth and market share in Australia, the UK, and North America. We took this a step further this year with the rollout of a new Purpose, Vision and Strategy, which captures a number of behaviours we are looking at all staff to embrace, including a greater focus on driving innovation and results at speed. Those behaviours also include our strategic push to drive engagement and growth, and to listen and be a partner of choice to our customers. In line with those ambitions, we recently launched the “Your Venue, Our Shout” initiative to the On-Premise trade in Australia. The package is accessible to both existing and new customers, and is available until August 31 2020 across our extended portfolio of quality wines, including brands such as Grant Burge, Croser, Stonier, Hardys, Petaluma and House of Arras. In addition to the stock replacement offer in the first month of re-opening, the “Your Venue, Our Shout” package offers On-Premise venues increased discounts on Accolade Wines’ most recent wholesale list price for the first 6 months after re-opening. To further assist customers, we also kept up our promotional frequency and had our field force act as a telesales team whilst working from home. With the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, we were able to put the field force back out in the trade from May 18 across the country, enabling

16|drinks guide

them to meet customers face-to-face for the first time since the lockdown began. For Off-Premise customers, we also made sure that we increased production safety stocks to cater for the increased demand in cask and sub-$10 wines in glass during this time.

BRAND AND CATEGORY NEWS At a brand level, Hardys has undergone a full packaging refresh and we have already witnessed our VR and Stamp range gaining greater shelf stand-out and presence thanks to the updated brand identity. Tintara, Hardys flagship range, has made great inroads into the $15-$20 segment, achieving key share gains with 44% growth (*IRI – Retail sales value - MAT To 10/05/2020) and plans for further extension into new varietals (Tempranillo, Grenache-Shiraz-Mataro). After a tough end to 2019, Petaluma, like several other Adelaide Hills wineries, sustained significant damage to vineyards and outbuildings after bushfires ripped through the region just before Christmas. Stables that stored vineyard, winery and cellar door equipment were also destroyed. Thankfully, all Petaluma staff were unharmed, and the cellar door facility was spared from the flames. The team at Petaluma was appreciative of the support from the local community and the broader wine industry, and is relieved to be shifting its focus back to what it does best – producing top wines for its legion of loyal fans. Our House of Arras brand, meanwhile, continued its partnership with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, this year collaborating to deliver a prestigious Sparkling & Symphony event at the Sydney Opera House. Late Disgorged 04 took out best Sparkling and 99 points in the Halliday wine companion, while Brut Elite won best Australian Sparkling trophy at the 2019 Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships. Grant Burge PNC Rosé was launched in 2019 to a positive response from both trade and

consumers, leveraging the strong heritage of its sparkling white counterpart, Grant Burge Pinot Noir Chardonnay. Within the $20-$35 segment, Sparkling Rosé is growing at 25.4% value and is one of the strongest growth segments within sparkling wine, alongside Prosecco. Grant Burge PNC Rosé has been one of the strongest Sparkling Rosé launches within the Australian Market, showing the 2nd highest level growth for any brand within the segment. Overall, the impact of COVID-19, while still being assessed, has impacted wine drinkers’ spending patterns in an unprecedented way. We have seen shoppers reverting to strong legacy brands such as Hardys, Houghton & Banrock Station as they provide great value, quality and confidence.

his year started very similar to previous years with high levels of excitement and optimism, and within our business, we were looking forward to another superb year of growth while also developing a more entrenched relationship with our customer base. Unfortunately, as we all know, our world was turned upside down when Covid-19 started materialising and the environment that we operated in changed dramatically. To say that it has been a challenging time is an understatement and we, like many businesses, have had to revisit our operating business model and determine what is the best way forward for our customers, our people and our businesses. The impact on the on-premise trade has been devastating with so many people directly affected who either work in the hospitality industry or have invested in venues. The closing of venues has a huge direct and indirect impact on our communities. The ‘local’ plays an important role in bringing people together to socialise, celebrate, commiserate and simply just to enjoy the pleasures of everyday life. With ‘locals’ closed and socialisation not permitted at home, the drinks industry has taken a significant hit. The changes occurred with such rapid speed over the past few months that we have had to respond quickly with a sharp focus on assisting our partners who have been most affected. Over the past weeks, many operators have been looking to find creative ways to maximise revenue and keep staff engaged after their traditional business suddenly fell away. Whilst this new, physically distant reality may last into the future in some form, many consumers are trying to create an experience at home. Venues are supporting this through selling what they used to serve to in-house guests by putting it in a box or a growler, and offering it for takeaway or delivery. It is this flexibility and creativity that will serve our industry well into the unknown future.

18|drinks guide

Throughout the pandemic, we have maintained regular connection with our customers and implemented initiatives such as offering credits for unopened kegs and bag-inbox post mix, and proactively discussing credit and account management to help customers manage cash flow. We also have a specialist beer team who have assisted our on-premise customers with services relating to beer reticulation and post mix equipment, focussing on servicing, cleaning and maintenance whilst the venues are closed to the public. Additionally, we have continued to provide our ‘Third Space’ platform services such as social media advice, consulting on training (online) and opportunities to assist with planning for any renovations that venues may undertake during the shutdown. We have also engaged with customers around new business models that venues may wish to explore such as online trivia or comedy nights that we are supporting. Our focus has shifted to how we can assist our partners evolve to a future state of operating, the recovery phase. The easing of restrictions will present new challenges with on-premise venues and this will differ by state. We will support all venues with their plans to re-engage with consumers to drive increased foot traffic into venues and bottle-shops whilst implementing a new operating model to ensure social distancing is maintained and enhanced cleaning regimes are employed. It is imperative that we quickly adapt to what will be the ‘new normal’. The safety of staff and patrons will be paramount and will be the key to further easing of restrictions in the future. The complexity of deciding how to emerge from the pandemic will be a new challenge that operators will have to navigate. The pandemic will irrevocably change guests’ relationship with drinking and eating out, and venues need to be ready for this and will have to reconsider what being a bar/pub/club/restaurant means to their guests and what experience patrons are looking for.

The retail drinks market has had a ‘rollercoaster’ ride since the Covid-19 impacts started to be felt. From the panic buying in March through to the lull in trade over the Easter period, it has been difficult to predict the true impact this pandemic is having on the retail drinks sector. Through the initial stages of lockdown restrictions, the usual at home drinking occasions reduced with limits placed on the number of guests allowed in the home and the lack of ‘events’ that consumers could celebrate. As the restrictions are eased, we expect for the retail market to trade strongly, especially whilst there are still on-premise limitations. At APB, we are committed to supporting our retail partners in maximising this opportunity and to help create new areas for growth. We anticipate that eating and drinking out will not return to previous levels of expenditure for the immediate future and this is what’s driving us to help all our customers (on and off premise) to be the best at what they do. Our focus will be to make it easy for customers to do business with Asahi Premium Beverages and we will be there to help our customers get back on their feet quickly. It is not going to be easy but rest assured APB is sharpening our focus to be well positioned to be a true industry partner for the new future.

BUSINESS AT THIS POINT IN TIME Like many industry participants and partners the past few months of 2020 have been unpredictable. That said, Brown Forman’s full strength spirits have performed strongly, and more recently our RTD business has seen increased performance as on-premise restrictions ease and RTD occasions become more prevalent once again. Our brands that are popular in the on-premise, particularly our tequila brands, have naturally suffered, but we look forward to continuing to partner with our many friends within the on-premise, as bars, pubs, clubs and restaurants reopen. We are seeing greater demand for ‘better for you’ and bolder flavour options, as well as a growth in premium spirits as consumers look to ‘reward themselves’. The Jack Daniel’s portfolio is well set up to capitalize on these trends.

SUPPORTING THE TRADE We have been disappointed to witness the recent closures of many of our customers and business partners due to the Covid-19 shutdowns, and the devastating impact these closures have had on so many of our friends and partners. In response, locally we have supported on-premise industry charitable


causes including HelpOutHospo, which has also been endorsed by key players in the industry including Matt Moran, renowned chef and restaurateur. This not-for-profit organisation has set up a portal through which consumers can pay a donation to watch videos showcasing chefs and bartenders teaching the public how to put together their signature dishes and drinks, with the money going into a fund that will assist hospitality workers. We sent Friends of Jack packs to bartenders and our trade community with personal notes to get them through the shutdown period, as well as continued bartender training online with live modules and webinars. All of this came after a heartbreaking summer, as so many communities battled the very worst of bushfires and floods. With so many consumers unable to enjoy the outdoors during that period, as well as not being able to get-together in groups to celebrate, our RTDs were impacted whilst our full strength portfolio continued to deliver a solid business performance.

OUR BUSINESS IN 2020 In 2020 Brown Forman celebrates its 150th anniversary. This is a year in which we celebrate

and share the company’s achievements, commemorate its legacy and look toward future success. This period, facing a global pandemic after a summer of bushfires is not the first time our company has faced adversity and has risen to the challenge. For Brown-Forman, Prohibition in the United States coincided with its 50th Anniversary in 1920. It’s the resilience of our company and the spirit of our people that has made us successful through the tough times and is the key ingredient to our success in 2020. We very much value our business partners and friends, and look forward to supporting them in the reopening and reinvigoration of their businesses over the year ahead. This will require all of us to capitalise on opportunities and engage in creative thinking, as we have done so over the past few months, did in 1920 during Prohibition in the US, and will do again. • NSW Team - LSA NSW ‘Supplier of the Year’ award • Michael Lawson - ILG ‘Manager of the Year’ PRIDE ERG • Australian HR Institute Michael Kirby Award for LGBT+ Inclusion ALIA Awards • Dark RTD/RTS, Winner – Jack Daniel’s Double Jack Australian Drink Awards • Award: Most Distinctive Brand of the Year RTD (Dark): Jack Daniel’s & Lemonade (Brown-Forman) • Award: Fan Favourite of the Year Spirits (Dark): Jack Daniel’s (Brown-Forman)

rom the devastating bushfire season through to a global pandemic, there’s no hiding from the fact that this is one of the most challenging years to hit our industry in a lifetime. But what this time has shown me is just how resilient and inspiring the people behind our industry of bars, venues, kitchens and dining rooms are – never giving up hope. While the Bottle shops around Australia have remained open, flexed to cope with changes in demand and worked hard to ensure they comply with Government legislation and keep their customers and suppliers safe at all times. We’ve seen this firsthand through the launch of industry support platform #ShakenNotBroken which we backed through a $500,000 in-kind donation that helped neighbourhood venues keep pouring drinks via a contactless cocktail delivery platform. Today, more than 200 venues across states and territories are on board and we hope it’s providing some form of revenue that can go towards ensuring these businesses can remain open and connected to their customers.

GROWTH AND REFLECTION As we map our way forward, it’s important to take stock of what we achieved through the hard work and dedication of our Camparistas. We were fortunate to come off the back of another strong year of brand growth and continued consumer love for our portfolio. This includes the success of purpose-led brand and social responsibility initiatives, such as the Wild Turkey and Matthew McConaughey campaign that gave back to the support of the great volunteers of the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife. This was a key example of how, in partnership with our key retailer partners, we can positively shift the perception of a category, such as bourbon, in the minds of new consumers 24|drinks guide

while continuing to stay authentic to our existing customers. Our aperitivo range continued to be embraced with gusto by so many Australians, which can be credited in part to the 100year consistency and quality of Campari and Aperol. While in whisky, Glen Grant cemented its place as an easy-drinking, yet highly regarded, Malt Whisky, with its 18-year-old receiving global recognition. As a business, I’m proud we embraced diversity and inclusion by holding ourselves accountable through the development of a blueprint for success, while championing change within the industry through participation in industry initiatives, such as the Embrace Difference Council, International Women’s Day and The Inclusive Leadership Program.

LOOKING AHEAD WITH OPTIMISM While many of our industries have been disrupted, it’s important we look to face the future with positivity, pragmatism and agility, which we’ve already seen with countless venues flexing their business model to survive. This includes investing in eCommerce, digital and social media platforms, which is critical to future growth in remaining the trusted and customercentric brand that we know customers expect in the age of Uber and Netflix. We’ll also strive to continue to build closer relationships with our on and off premise partners, to ensure we learn and adapt to others’ changing tastes and preferences together, such as the rise of wellbeing, health and wellness trends and the explosion of organic and sustainable ingredients. As we look to the year ahead, the future for our industry is beginning to emerge – it will be different, there will be challenges but with great adversity comes great opportunity and innovation.

he start of the new decade has certainly presented us all with unique and unexpected challenges and every business has had to adapt in the best possible way they can. As we enter the second half of 2020, while there is a long road ahead I hope to see stability and a gradual return to normality for Australia’s liquor industry. At the beginning of the year Australia was in the midst of the tragic bushfires and over the last few months we have faced an unprecedented pandemic. As I reflect on this year’s vintage, one of the highlights for me was seeing our growers, viticulture and winemaking teams adapting to the changes in order to deliver a successful vintage. It’s been truly gratifying to see how the winemaking community has come together to support one another and demonstrates just how resilient and resourceful the industry can be. I’m confident the wines from the 2020 vintage will be excellent, and I’m sure this vintage will be remembered not only for its wines but for camaraderie and community spirit. Reflecting on the last few months and the complexities we have had to navigate in dealing with a significant global challenge, the three learnings that really stay with me are: • the health and wellbeing of our staff, their families and our local communities has remained our number one priority;

26|drinks guide

the need to adapt quickly and tailor our approach to each region, market and channel and • the importance of having trusted brands with a strong value proposition. We made the decision early on to close our regional cellar doors and take our sales team off the road to protect the health and wellbeing of our people and the communities in which we operate. It was important to me that we acted proactively and played a role in mitigating the impact of COVID-19 on our industry. As the pandemic began to take hold we experienced similar patterns of consumer behaviour as lockdowns created an increased demand of grocery items and alcohol. In particular, [yellow tail] sales in our major markets spiked as a result of the ‘pantry loading’ mentality in March. Following the stockpiling that took place, [yellow tail] continues to experience strong global sales due to a significant increase in at-home wine consumption and occasions. Furthermore, under challenging economic circumstances, consumers tend to choose brands that they trust and offer excellent value for money, which is the strong appeal of [yellow tail]. In contrast we have seen on-trade consumption ceasing altogether, coupled with a drop in international travel which has presented significant challenges. We hope that the easing of restrictions will

see a shift in consumer behaviour, so the many cafes, bars and restaurants that have been impacted can open their doors again. We are committed to working closely with our on premise distributors to ensure we support them on the road to recovery. Throughout the pandemic, we have worked very closely with our trade partners with regular and consistent communication, particularly while our sales reps were unable to make face to face visits. We have adapted to meet the different challenges presented by each channel, from ensuing we are able to support retailers with stock requirements to being commercially lenient and supportive to customers impacted and challenged by the current situation. Our key priority moving forward is to continue to focus on our core brands. We know consumers will continue to look for valued and trusted Australian wine brands and we want to provide both our trade partners and wine consumers with reassurance and certainty in uncertain times. There is a long road ahead for many businesses, and while consumers have indicated they will be more cautious about discretionary spending, we believe consumers will remain actively engaged with the category and wine will continue to be a way they choose to treat themselves. We anticipate wine drinkers with a passion for luxury and indulgence will embrace the return to restaurants and fine dining

experiences, and this will help drive resurgence of the premium wine category. In closing, there is a light at the end of the tunnel and we must maintain our belief in this fantastic industry, continue to approach each day with optimism and resilience but most importantly, unite to support each other through this next chapter.

ustralia’s hospitality industry has seen its fair share of challenges in the first half of 2020. Reflecting on the past six months for this piece was somewhat confronting. Horrendous bushfires, flooding events, smoke haze and, of course, the prolonged and brutal drought marked a shocking start to what was meant to be an exciting new decade. We did not think it could get any worse and then COVID-19 struck. Never have we seen parts of the economy systematically closed down in response to such a threat to the health of our nation. But never have I felt more privileged to be a part of this industry. In those early days of the crisis, decisions were being made quickly. At Lion, we held grave concerns that brewing would not be permitted to continue when the closures were initially announced. The closure of breweries would have resulted in serious beer shortages for up to three months in Australia, not to mention the significant impact it would have had on the expansive supply chain that supports our industry - ranging from farmers to truck drivers to packaging manufacturers. Hundreds of more jobs would have been at risk. It was welcome news when assurances were given that brewing could continue and bottle shops permitted to trade. However, this good news paled in comparison to the impact the restrictions were having on all of our on-premise customers. We always try to do our best to continuously focus on supporting our customers. We began to implement several immediate measures to help reduce the burden for the on-premise which we knew would be doing it incredibly tough when they had to close their doors on March 23. Our team moved quickly to: • Offer a credit for all unused, full and capped kegs including the cost of freight to send them back to us. To date, we have credited venues around Australia nearly $30 million for 107,000 kegs. 28|drinks guide

In response to the ATO’s relaxation of excise requirements for repackaging draught beer, Lion rolled out nearly 20,000 1.25 litre amber bottles (although the feedback was they were a bit too small), caps and tap dispensers to venues around Australia to allow them to sell through their remaining draught beer. I would like to give a big shout out to the ATO as this was a really great initiative to support the industry and of course, allowed tap beer lovers a taste of their favourite draught beer. We welcome the announcement that this will be extended until the end of September 2020, which is good news for venues getting back on their feet. • We have also supported venues with cleaning procedures for their draught beer systems to keep them in working order, ready and able to open up quickly again. Our draught quality team has now cleaned 15,000 couplers and taps for our on-premise customers. So committed to the cause, our team has been doing all this vital work from home. • Work with customers who were doing it tough to see how and where we could help them manage the situation. These measures complemented the innovative responses from pubs and clubs we saw throughout the COVID-19 closures, which kept people in jobs and saw some operators continue to trade despite the closures through food and beverage delivery and take-away sales. In addition to our direct support for customers, we felt it was critical to contribute to the public health messaging using the power of our iconic and much-loved brands. To date, Lion’s public campaign, executed through its brands XXXX, Tooheys, Emu Export, James Boag, Furphy and West End has reached more than 20 million people. We asked people to stay home, something we never

thought we would have to do as Australia’s leading brewer and champion of sociability! To coincide with the gradual re-opening of venues, in partnership with customers we rolled out branded safety kits that included signage about cashless payments, floor decals for space, sneeze screens and bar runners asking people to keep their distance. These were really handy kits, which meant venue operators had one less thing to think about when re-opening, allowing them to comply more easily with the new health and safety standards. Despite the challenges COVID-19 has presented, at Lion, we tried to prepare for the future and continued with the launch of several promising new beers including XXXX Dry in Queensland, Furphy Crisp Lager in Victoria, James Squire Broken Shackles Lager and James Squire Ginger Beer nationally. We also made the exciting announcement of our partnership with Mark Anthony Brands International to bring the hottest beverage brand on the planet to Australian shores in time for summer – White Claw! Watch out Australia! The market leader in hard seltzers, White Claw promises to be a real hit in our market, meeting growing consumer trends towards mindful consumption. As we start to see life return to a new normal, I hope the next six months will see a much brighter time for our pubs and clubs as well as our country as restrictions are further removed. The recovery will potentially take years, not months. As an industry, we are a resilient group and I would like to send special regards and thanks to our fellow suppliers in all categories for what we have all done together to support our unique and wonderful customers and industry! Enjoy that draught beer back at your local! Cheers!

18|drinks guide

We are passionate and entrepreneurial in spirit about providing our end customers with innovative drink solutions that support the sustainable, long-term growth of premium brands. With that, in 2019 Stuart Alexander & Co leveraged on our long-standing relationships with key brands such as MONIN, TABASCO and Ocean Spray by diversifying and expanding our Premium Beverages portfolio by launching in the liquor sector initially with Taylor Made Spirits (The West Winds Gin and AVOSH vodka), quickly followed by Fentimans mixers and evian. Furthering our Premium Beverage growth, in early 2020 we also introduced Chase Distillery into the portfolio. Stuart Alexander & Co now offers a broad range of locally and international crafted gin and vodka complemented with exceptional botanically brewed mixers. Continuing to build on the bar trades’ perfect collection, we are constantly seeking to expand our premium beverages to further complement our already successful portfolio

in the on- and off-premises. The remainder of 2020 will bring a further expansion of this portfolio with new and exciting brands. The beginning of 2020 saw unprecedented times for all businesses within the HORECA space, not only locally but also globally. We were and remain deeply concerned with the impact of COVID-19 on the broader HORECA trade; we continue to support our brands’ partners and customers as we all navigate through these unchartered times. Stuart Alexander offers a story that spans some of the most important events in modern history; the company has built an inspiring and lasting legacy based on loyalty, friendship and family values and is backed by an insatiable entrepreneurial spirit. The consumer and customer is at the heart of everything we do and we will continue to partner with market-leading and innovative brands they know, trust and love.

hen William Grant first set out to disrupt the Scotch whisky industry in 1887 it was with the sole purpose of producing the best dram in the valley. 133 years on and his legacy lives on proudly, with William Grant and Sons having been recognised as ‘Distiller of the year’ and ‘Spirits producer of the year’ 2019 by the IWSC and ISC. It is this passion and commitment to producing quality spirits that are behind the continued momentum that the business is experiencing in both Australia and around the world. The William Grant & Sons Australia business performed strongly over the last 12 months, growing share to 4.9%* of spirits with double digit growth well ahead of the spirits category. Glenfiddich, the worlds’ most awarded Single Malt, maintained its’ leadership position growing share versus the category. A more distinctive and premium execution of the flagship 12YO and 15YO bottles hit market in early 2020, which in addition to the launch of the Whisky Wanderer bus and personalised bottle gifting program throughout 2019, helped deliver growth across all channels. Monkey Shoulder continues to welcome new drinkers to the whisky category, with its playful personality helping break down traditional preconceptions of Scotch to introduce new drinkers to whisky through the art of accessible cocktails. The ‘Monkey Mixer,’ a giant cocktail mixing four-wheeled extravaganza has been supporting venues through personalised cocktail delivery services throughout the COVID isolation period and part of our broader ‘Standfast’ trade programme to support hospitality staff affected by on premise closures. The whisky category continues to show strong evolution in the Australian market, however for many consumers there is still an intimidation factor which prevents them from trialling. Through high profile marketing programmes and delivering

education via our brand ambassador team WGS want to demystify the category to help all our customers get their fair share of the $70M RSV* opportunity that exists within Malt Whisky. We expect to see a continued rise in experimentation and so having the right range, from a leading blend like Grant’s through to a connoisseur malt in The Balvenie, WGS have the expertise and range to unlock the opportunity. Gin continues to perform strongly, leading the growth of all Australian spirits categories over the last year. Hendricks maintains its leadership position within super premium gin and to support the growing consumer demand for discovery, Hendricks Mid Summer Solstice was launched across all channels in late 2019. This, the first major innovation from the brand offers drinkers a refreshing floral gin that is perfect for long drinks and summer spritzes and has proven to be a great recruitment tool for bringing new drinkers into gin from adjacent spirits categories. 2019 saw Sailor Jerry enter the RTD segment with the launch of Sailor and Dry and Sailor and Cola, targeting shoppers looking for the convenience of a readymade perfect serve to enjoy at home. This July will see the launch of Savage Apple, an apple infused Sailor Jerry that can be enjoyed neat or in a long drink with ginger as part of a broader initiative to expand occasions on the Sailor Jerry brand. Whilst the start of 2020 has been turbulent, what we can be certain of is that at home experimentation and spirits premiumisation is here to stay. William Grant & Sons has a portfolio of quality brands that are well placed to maximise growth in the current environment and we are committed to supporting our customers deliver growth across all premium spirits categories.
