Find out which spirits dominate the beverage industry.

BevSpot’s bar management platform recently hit $20 million in orders, so we decided to look at every order placed during the last year, and the results are in. Here are the top 7 spirit categories that were ordered most. You might be surprised by the breakdown.

Take a look at the graphs to see how your bar compares.


According to the data, bars across the country order whiskeys, vodkas, and tequilas above all. If you’re running a spirit-heavy bar, or you’re looking to maximize space in your bar or storage room, this data is a good percentage-based representation of what items to stock. We’re not suggesting you stock your bar this way (every bar is different, of course), but this should give you a good idea of spirit popularity across the industry.


Surprised by the breakdown? These 7 spirits make up 95% of all spirit orders on our platform. BevSpot has customers in over 30 states, and while this data is representative of larger market trends, we’d like you to keep in mind that a substantial portion of our customers are located in the New England region. But as more orders are placed through our platform, we see more insight into how bars and restaurants are operating around the country.

As BevSpot continues to grow nationally, we’ll publish this data every quarter. Subscribe to the blog below to see how this changes over time!
