The World’s Largest Mezcal Markets

Mezcal has claimed a significant spot on the global spirits landscape.

Mezcal is rapidly gaining in favor among the on-trade and is converting mature drinkers of dark spirits due to its smoky character and sipping ability.

It remains to be seen whether this list will change dramatically in the years to come following new prospects in the east, but, for now, (according Amy Hopkins of The Spirits Magazine, February 20, 2014) here are the world’s five largest Tequila and mezcal markets based on data by Euromonitor International:

  1. US
  2. Mexico
  3. Russia
  4. South Africa
  5. Germany

By far the largest market for Tequila and mezcal, the US has seen imports grow every year for a decade.
