RTDS IN PORTUGAL
KEY DATA FINDINGS
2020 IMPACT
Strong decline for RTDs due to COVID-19 restrictions including the closure of the on-trade, lockdown and home seclusion
Wine-based RTDs safeguarded by ongoing focus on the off-trade though sales decline via the on-trade in the summer months leading to overall category decline
Brands with a strong off-trade focus perform well in 2020 while those solely available via the on-trade suffer dramatic losses
RECOVERY AND OPPORTUNITIES
Recovery in line with the overall market performance though spirit-based RTDs faces competition from other categories as well as own mixes and the cocktail trend
Uninspiring developments for RTDs in Portugal, though Vini Sangria's fortunes improve when the on-trade returns to normal operations
Competition from hard seltzers dampens potential for RTDs especially as the category is developing through new launches
