Fever-Tree achieved a 13% increase in revenue in the six months to 30 June 2019, to £117.7m.

Adjusted EBITDA was up 8% to £36.7m, with profit before tax of £34.9m, up from £32.7m in the comparable period last year.

The UK made up 51% of its overall revenue, at £60.7m – up 5% on H1 2018.

The supplier of premium carbonated mixers said it had strengthened its position as the number one brand across the UK mixer category, driving growth in both on- and off-trade.

However, the Group said that, as expected, following several years of exceptional growth, the first half of 2019 saw a moderation in both Fever-Tree’s and the wider UK mixer category’s underlying growth rates, to what still remains strong levels but off a higher base.

Tim Warrillow, chief executive of Fever-Tree said it had been “an encouraging first half for the Group”, with growth across all four of its trading regions, most notably in the US.

“While we have not been immune to the impact of the unseasonably poor weather in the UK, we have further strengthened our market leadership position within the UK and have seen positive momentum in Europe and the rest of the world reflecting our increasingly global footprint,” he said.

Warrillow added that the move to long mixed drinks was gathering momentum and starting to win share from beer and wine.

“Whilst we remain mindful of the tough comparators over the remainder of the summer in the UK, the Board anticipates that the outcome for the full year will be in line with its expectations,” he continued.
