Off trade top 50 and most valuable brands

Nielsen ScanTrack
Scotland’s top four off-trade alcohol brands remain Smirnoff, Glen’s, Tennent’s and Budweiser. But the performance of the two categories, vodka and lager, and of the brands differed last year. The two vodkas saw sales rise in a category that was also in growth. The two beers, and the lager category overall, saw sales fall.

The range of drinks that convenience retailers have to consider, and potentially stock and display, has widened greatly in recent years. Today, with our exclusive Nielsen research we identify category trends and brand performances in the Scottish off-trade of some key alcohol categories (with more to follow in upcoming editions). You can measure how your store did last year against the category and brand results and find growing new brands to check out.
