Here's an article from Home World Business talking about how consumers are Elevating their Aspirations around bar ware and the home cocktail experience.
It’s no question that the craft cocktail movement has certainly had an influence on the at-home bar. Consumers enjoying creative and handcrafted cocktails, or tasting new spirits out at restaurants, have a renewed appreciation for proper techniques and ingredients. However, as consumers become more confident, so has their desire to refine their own bartending skills. Such aspirations have led to an increased demand in elevated wine and bar accessories for the home.
Craft ice is also a critical trend in this:
Ice, too, has become a focal point, as consumers expand their cocktail making knowledge. Larger, clear cubes of ice are sought out more often for consumers who wish to slowly sip on spirits such as whiskey and bourbon, savoring the flavors and aromas of the brands they have invested in.
For June 2020, the household was low on clear ice options. After buying in 40 pound blocks, it's hard to go back to a routine of making your own four cubes at a time. With MA in Phase 3 of opening, I should be able to restock the clear ice this month! Looking forward to it just in time for the hot Boston weather.
