Sales of Ladoga’s Barrister Gin doubled in 2019
Global Drinks Intel April 2020
Ladoga has enjoyed initial success in the gin category with its Barrister brand. Its PR chief Sotnichuk says sales of Barrister doubled in 2019. “It is interesting that we succeed not only in the horeca (hotel, restaurant and café) channel, which we initially focused
on, but also in retail,” he explains. “We could offer the consumer gin at an affordable price and superior quality. Last year’s new products showed well. The new flavoured gins, especially pink, performed well. This year we are launching two new gin items — Russian Barrister in a bright red bottle with a high percentage of alcohol and local ingredients, and Sloe Gin, traditional gin made with the addition of blackthorn.”
The wine market in Russia has been recovering and restructuring, according to Sotnichuk. “In 2019, the [consumer] emphasis shifted to the mid-price segment and the mass market; the ultra-premium sector was mostly flat,” he says. Sotnichuk notes that Ladoga managed to increase its market share in a couple of regional markets, as well as strengthen its presence in the horeca sector in Moscow and St. Petersburg.
