ICONiQ Whisky reaches 2 million cases in first year of launch

Allied Blenders and Distillers (ABD) ICONiQ White Whisky reached a sales figure of 2 million cases of 9 litres each in March 2024. The brand was able to achieve this despite current availability in 70% of the operational segment. ICONiQ White is available in pack size of i.e., 750 ml, 375 ml,180 ml, 90ml with further market launches will commence in April 2024.

ABD attributes the success of this milestone to its ability to understand its consumer preferences and its capacity to deliver efficiently and effectively. The company has further plans to expand to super-premium segments. ICONiQ White Whisky is a blend of imported Scotch malts aged in bourbon oak casks, blended with select matured malts and Indian grain spirits.

“Delighted to see our strategic focus on premiumisation translate to success with ICONiQ White Whisky against a strong line-up of entrenched multinational brands. It strengthens our resolve to transition to super-premium segments,” said Alok Gupta, Managing Director, ABD India.  Bikram Basu, Chief Strategy & Marketing Officer, ABD said, “We are happy with the milestone of reaching 2 million cases in our first year. As we celebrate this success, we set our sights higher.”
