By the end of 2022, the bar menu of Russian restaurants will consist of 50% domestic alcohol. Now, these products represent 10%. Restaurateurs conclude short-term contracts with Russian and CIS producers to assess demand.
Restaurant menus already have Russian gin, vodka and more Crimean wines. Popular cocktails will remain on bar charts, the business promises. At the same time, there are no plans to change the pricing policy, reports Izvestia.
Now the restaurant menu is dominated by drinks from Italy and the UK, but the proportion of Russian alcohol is increasing. By the New Year, half of the alcohol on the cards will be Russian-made or from the CIS countries.
In April, Post Bank conducted a survey and found out what Russians will save on first during a crisis. Fewer of all respondents will cut spending on food, personal care, clothing. The first item of spending to cut is alcohol.
