The UK brewing and distilling industries are alive and well, as King’s boiler sales in this market confirm. Business continues to increase as new breweries and distilleries especially handcrafted beers and specialist gins come on stream.
The UK brewing industry is growing at over 10% a year; the highest number of British breweries since the 1930s and 40s. With around 1,285 breweries operating, it has more breweries per head of population than any other country in the world.*Good Beer Guide 2015
The number of gin distilleries alone in Britain has doubled in six years, with 49 opening in 2015 alone after a huge boost in demand. Craft gin-makers have sprung up across the country, and King’s have been proud to supply boilerplant for many of them. The increase is said to have been driven by “boutique distilleries” that are making small batches of the spirit. The Wine and Spirit Trade Association predicted sales of gin in Britain to reach £1billion by the end of 2016. Exports of UK-produced gin are reported to have risen by more than a third in five years and King’s see no signs in this slowing. Britain’s historic love of gin is well documented and these are exciting times for new producers.
