Drinks sales hit record for 2022 amid good weather and St Patrick’s Day

Across the week, spirits sales were 25% up on the same period in 2019, while beer (up 7%) and cider (up 10%) recorded year-high growth as well

Out-of-home drinks sales were 7% up on pre-pandemic levels last week, according to the CGA’s latest Drinks Recovery Tracker, in part thanks to good weather, St Patrick’s Day and the Six Nations. 

The figure, for average drinks sales by value in Britain’s managed pubs, bars and restaurants over the week to last Saturday (12 March), compared to the same week in 2019, marks the best performance of 2022 so far.
