The growing popularity of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks in all worldwide locations is expected to generate promising sales opportunities for the global bitters market.
Even though bitters may contain alcohol, in the US Bitters are not classified as beverages by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), which means it’s regulated as a food item that contains alcohol.
Bitters are becoming cocktail essentials and staples for non-alcohol and alcohol bars. A few drops can make a drastic change to anything from a gin & tonic to an Old Fashioned.
According to Research & Markets, the Global Bitters Market size was estimated at USD $316.56 million in 2021, USD $354.84 million in 2022, and is projected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 12.26% to reach USD $633.87 million by 2027.
