the vodka market

Update 03/10/2019


1.1 Market definition

Vodka is a colourless alcoholic beverage traditionally produced from cereals (rye, wheat) and potatoes, although other agricultural products can be used (beets and fruits).

The vodka market is a sub-segment of the spirits market (drinks produced from distilled alcohol). The French Federation of Spirits (FFS) separates them into two categories:

  • "Simple" spirits which includes vodka, but also whisky, gin and rum, whose taste is linked to the distillation of the raw material.
  • "Compound" spirits such as aniseed aperitifs, or liqueurs whose taste is linked to the addition of aromatic substances to a neutral alcohol or brandy

In France, vodka production is grouped under NAF code 11.01.10Z : Production of distilled alcoholic beverages.

The vodka market is dominated by spirits giants (Diageo, Pernod Ricard, La Martiniquaise, Bacardi) without presenting significant barriers to entry for niche brands such as Blu Frog or Citadelle.

The decrease in the quantity of alcohol consumed in France could lead vodka consumption to more qualitative consumption .
