The voice of the Australian Spirits Industry

Who we are

Creating opportunities for economic growth and industry development.

Spirits & Cocktails Australia is the peak body for major spirits manufacturers operating in Australia. Our vision is to promote a safe and vibrant spirits sector, which reflects Australia’s mature drinking culture and creates opportunities for sustainable growth and economic development.

Our industry delivers $15.5 billion in total value-add to the Australian economy each year. It provides more than 5,700 manufacturing jobs with a further 100,000 jobs supported through our supply chain stretching ‘farm to glass’ from primary producers to the hospitality and tourism sectors.

Spirits tax reform will create the conditions for sustainable growth

With modest reform, the Government has the potential to release the handbrake on the Australian spirits industry to unlock opportunities to create a sustainable and scalable manufacturing industry.

In a joint Pre-Budget Submission, Spirits & Cocktails Australia and the Australian Distillers Association showed that resetting spirits tax rates can increase Government revenue, while providing a powerful kickstart to grow domestic spirits manufacturing into a premium agricultural-based export industry.

As international demand for premium spirits continues to grow, there has never been a better time to invest in the future of the Australian spirits industry.
