Top 10 best-selling Scotch whisky brands

5. J&B

J&B-Rare2014: 3.7m

2013: 4m

% change: -7%

Place last year: 5

Maintaining its number five spot despite a 7% sales fall, J&B still claims to be the most popular whisky in Europe. Despite moving into the popular flavoured “whisky” category with the release of J&B Urban Honey in March last year, the brand has not experienced the same level of success as its honeyed American cousins.

    Ballantines? William Peel? William Lawson’s? These brands aren’t even heard of let alone drank in Scotland. So much for authenticity.

    never heard of william peel and i’ve been born and bred in scotland.

    Lawson’s 13 YO and Ballantines 17/25 YO are excellent blends. I am surprised at William Peel’s continued stay in the top 10-I’m not overly impressed by it. Moreover, I expected Grant’s 9 YO peated blend to climb the bandwagon.

    But Scotland as a country gets nothing from these whiskies!
