Peanut Butter Whiskey

When Skrewball’s Peanut Butter Whiskey launched back in 2018, it catapulted the unique flavor profile to the mainstream and intrigued consumers – resulting in flavored whiskey sales being up 14.6% from the two years prior (and as of July 2022).1 This flavor profile can be described as a combination of smooth whiskey and creamy peanut butter, making for a unique and delicious sipping experience.  

Peanut Butter was named one of the 20 fastest-growing flavors of the past three years in hot and dairy beverages.2

FD 5 2Black Currant Lime

Black Currant was named among the 20 fastest-growing flavors of the past three years.4 This small, dark purple berry, common in cocktails and liqueurs, brings a slightly bitter and tangy profile to the tongue but is often described as having a sweet-tart balance that is reminiscent of a grape-like flavor. Paired in harmony with the citrusy, refreshing, and zesty experience of Lime, this flavor combination has potential to grow in both the non-alcoholic and alcohol sector. With consumers paying more attention to prioritizing health & wellness in their diets, this unison also hits on the inherent health halo surrounding citrus, which has increased 16% as a mentioned menu ingredient from 2018 to 2021 in the beverage category.5

28.3% of consumers said they would be interested in trying Black Currant across all beverage categories.6
