Premium Outlets are Transforming the Alcobev Industry to Drink Better, not More

The International Spirits and Wines Association of India (ISWAI) recently commissioned global research agency IPSOS to conduct a market survey to assess shopper experience and perceptions at high-end premium liquor stores. The survey gleaned interesting insights into transforming alcobev buying experiences with the growth of premiumisation across key regions in the country. Key trends that will shape the industry's future emerged from the survey. These include: Propensity for women to visit outlets is higher at premium outlets Women are stepping into liquor stores more than ever before on the back of premiumisation. The survey found that while just 2% of women shoppers visited regular stores, premium stores witnessed 10% women visiting and shopping for their preferred brands. This growth stems from the safety and comfort that premium liquor stores offer, making women feel independent enough to browse for premium brands and shop for them on their own. Premium Outlets offer a Safe and better ambient environment A safe and inviting environment is also encouraging men and women to spend more time at premium stores, basking in the shopping experience. The survey revealed that 23% men are accompanied in a premium store and 63% are alone, as compared to regular stores where 27% men come accompanied and 72% are alone. On the other hand, with a better environment, 63% women walk into premium liquor stores alone while only 37% are accompanied. Its not about thirst but experience and experiment at Premium Outlets 43% of shoppers visiting in groups browse and experiment at liquor stores Unlike regular liquor stores, premium stores allow patrons to enter the pleasantly-designed outlets and browse through the aisles to pick up their preferred drinks. The research found that individuals in the age group of 31-40 years are driving the experimentation and browsing trends with 54% shoppers enquiring about products. Moreover, Shoppers were found to be more explorative while visiting in groups (43%) vis--vis visiting alone (29%). In terms of drinks that are piquing customer interest, the data pointed towards beer and rum, which attracted the maximum browsing and interaction during non-peak hours. 35% more shoppers interact with retailers at premium stores as opposed to regular ones. Women feel safe and spend more at premium liquor stores With premium stores offering a greater number of high-quality, sought-after brands, it is not surprising that the survey found a higher offtake of premium (Whiskey-18 % - Beer-34%) compared to regular outlets (Whiskey 5% - Beer-18%). The data also pointed towards a 2x growth in spends at premium stores with women averaging INR 702 on a single purchase as compared to INR 468 among men. Affluent, 40+ shoppers driving maximum sales at premium stores Delving into the demographic trends unlocked by premium liquor stores, the survey unveiled interesting insights. Overall, in premium stores, 19% of shoppers are above 41 while 14% are above 50 years. Comparatively, regular stores witness 16% shoppers above 41 years and 4% over 50. The trend replicates itself across Delhi, Gurgaon, Mumbai, Lucknow, and Bangalore, where shoppers in the 40+ age bracket frequent premium liquor stores more than regular ones. This indicates that premium liquor stores are attracting mature, affluent shoppers who analyse brands and prefer making informed decisions around alcobev purchases. Speaking on the survey, Nita Kapoor, Chief Executive Officer , said, Premium liquor stores are driving the trends of browsing and experimentation in the alcobev industry leading to the key message of Drink Less, Drink Better by ISWAI. As evidenced by the survey, more shoppers, including women and higher age groups, prefer premium stores on the back of elevated experience, perception, ease of navigation, and safety. Weekdays and non-peak hours witness an uptick in browsing as relaxed shopping takes place during these hours. The number of people consuming liquor in India is projected to increase from 29.3 crore in 2018 to 38.6 crore in 2030. With greater and better variety and room for experimentation at premium stores, premiumisation of liquor stores will continue to unlock interesting trends in this space .

New car for my 70-year-old father: Replacing his VW Vento under Rs 15L

BHPian KL01toKA03 recently shared this with other enthusiasts. My dad (70-year-old) is selling his Vento Diesel and is looking for a car to replace it. The Vento is getting replaced due to the high cost of maintaining the car. He was quoted a 1.5 lakh+ amount for ECU replacement, and although he managed to get it repaired outside the Volkswagen service centre, he is scared of future troubles. His requirements are the following:Budget 15 lakhs OTR in Kerala which can be stretched by a maximum of 1 lakh.Should not be sluggish, and should have adequate power for quick overtakes.5-seater, preferably diesel (his running just does not justify a diesel, but he likes diesel cars)No Volkswagen/Skoda carsUnfortunately, he will not buy an electric car I am trying to convince him to buy a petrol car and he seems to like the Hyryder/Vitara. Please recommend any other cars that can be considered. Here's what GTO had to say on the matter:Most definitely worth waiting for the Maruti Grand Vitara & Toyota Hyryder. They are going to enter the segment with a bang and are the talk of the town right now. For your dad, a crossover is a must (easy ingress/egress & taller driving position) and I would strongly recommend an AT too. 90% of MT-for-life people I've met are now happy AT lovers after they experienced good automatics. That includes yours truly. Other cars I'd recommend are the Creta, Seltos, Sonet, Hector, Astor & Carens. Show him our reviews, bring it down to 3 - 4 cars and go test-drive them all. Bring home the one that makes him smile the widest. Keeping his troubles with the Vento in mind, be sure to get the maximum possible extended warranty.Here's what BHPian itsmeparvathy9 had to say on the matter:Considering your father's age, it would be better to go for an Automatic transmission car preferably SUV for the ease of ingress and egress and driving position and since he used to drive a Vento sedan, anything below it wouldn't be much of an upgrade. If he is stubborn about getting a diesel, the best diesel automatic car under this budget would be the Kia Sonet HTX Diesel AT, other automatic cars in this range are mostly AMT and I wouldn't recommend that when you are spending 15 lakhs. If we want a bigger car, I'd recommend the Hyundai Creta/ Kia Seltos Diesel Manual or Petrol IMT (clutch-less manual) If a bigger car with an automatic is what you need the MG Astor CVT could do too but mileage would be on the lower side, the engine isn't the peppiest either.Here's what BHPian RijuC had to say on the matter:Buy the Toyota Urban Cruiser K15B + 4-speed Torque Converter AT, if the rear passenger seat space is not a problem. Advantages are:Ingress-egress are good.This engine+AT combination seems to be better than the new K15C+6 S AT.The Engine+AT combo is good for city drives in Bangalore traffic.UC AT costs within 12 Lakhs OTR in Gurgaon, whereas the new Brezza ZXI AT is almost 16 lakhs OTR here.A tension-free sasta-sundar-tikav compact SUV with better ground clearance and almost bulletproof reliability.Toyota HR/ Maruti Suzuki GV have advantages of relatively better leg space and well-managed interior width for the rear passenger seat, bigger boot space, a little more premium dashboard and better ICE, and panoramic sunroof in the topmost variant and paddle shifters for AT. For this duo:Ex-showroom price - unknownTest drive - unavailableYouTube expert test drive videos - unavailableIn showroom display car - unavailable (200 people jumping into a single car when it was brought in GGN for 1-2 days, the boot was purposefully locked).Pre-booking - Must, INR 11,000/- to secure a lucky spot to get it delivered within the next 15 months (the new Brezza AT waiting period is 15 months in GGN).If the primary user's height is within 5'8, Honda City's ingress-egress may not be a big problem. However, low GC will always remain a challenge.Here's what BHPian ashivas89 had to say on the matter:I see many suggestions pointing towards the Hyryder/Grand Vitara duo. They will be a great choice for:Someone who is not used to the punch of the VAG 1.5 dieselSomeone who is okay to go beyond 20 big ones for the strong hybrid because the mild hybrid will likely feel very underpoweredKnowing Kerala roads, I understand why your father prefers a punchy engine (punchy engines give that extra sense of security for executing swift, clean overtakes on narrow roads).Manual? --> City Diesel/ Kia Sonet or Hyundai VenueAuto?--> Kia Sonet diesel AT hands downOutside contenders --> Xuv 300 Diesel Manual (on the merits of the engine alone, the others mentioned above are superior in terms of what they offer as an overall package) or Nexon EV (if daily drives are well within 50% of quoted range) ask him to try one, I'm sure he will fall for the refinement and punch. All other potential options will go beyond your budget.Check out BHPian comments for more insights and information.
