An independent Scottish gin maker has predicted the boom in demand will continue for years.
Carlo Valente, of Stirlingshire-based Boe Gin, told BBC Radio's Good Morning Scotland programme: "All the signs are [the boom] will continue. The UK gin market's worth £1.6bn, plus half a billion in export sales, so it's worth about £2bn.
"Experts predict that will grow to possibly £3bn by 2020 and continue growing to 2022."
The Scotland Food and Drink industry group has predicted gin will outstrip Scotch sales by 2020.
Some 70% of the UK's gin is produced in Scotland.

Sales of gin have almost doubled in the past two years.
The Wine and Spirit Trade Association says a record 73m bottles were sold last year making more than £2bn.
Gervais Williams of Miton told Radio 5 Live's Wake Up To Money that the rise in sales was pretty rapid.
And, there had been a rise in sales in all the types of products that could be added to gin.
Double or triple strength gin should be provided in the House of Commons to help MPs deal with "tough times", according to MP Luke Pollard.
The Plymouth, Sutton and Devonport MP called for Plymouth Gin to be stocked in the House of Commons to commemorate the Mayflower 400 celebrations, marking the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower from Plymouth to the US.
Speaking in the House of Commons, Mr Pollard suggested going further and stocking extra-strength gin to help MPs cope with "tough times".
In these tough times, may I suggest we not only look at the standard strength gin, but Plymouth Gin's Navy strength, because we could all do with a little bit extra in these tough times."
Speaking for the House of Commons Commission, Liberal Democrat MP Tom Brake (Carshalton and Wallington) said the House of Commons catering service "does not currently stock Plymouth Gin", but will seek to stock some for the Mayflower 400 commemoration.
He said, however, that stocking extra-strength alcohol may not be something the House of Commons would welcome.
Mr Pollard may be aware of moves within the House perhaps to look at the availability of alcohol within this place, so I am not sure double or triple strength gin may be something the House wants to entertain. But he has put that on the record and I will take that back to the catering services to see if they want to stock the double or treble strength that he proposes."
