In 2017, WGSN called out the growth opportunities for Mexican spirits, driven by more healthful living and the changing perception of sugar. By 2020, online retailer Drizly reported mezcal sales surged 600 percent year over year. In 2020, WGSN Food & Drink shows how changing consumer values support Mexican spirits, and that beyond tequila and mezcal, there is also growth opportunity for lesser-known spirits. In 2023, WGSN forecasts the rise of Sotol, one of Mexico’s lesser known spirits.
