It’s of no surprise that Jack Daniel’s held on to the top spot as the world’s best-selling world whisky brand, reporting a 2.26% sales growth in 2016 to 12.49m cases. Consider that these figures don’t include Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey, which saw an even greater percentage jump of 4.07% to 1.51m cases, and it’s clear the brand  The Brown-Forman-owned whisky producer lined up a series of events and activities to celebrate its 150th anniversary, including a renovation of its Lynchburg distillery and the release of special bottlings – including a Motörhead edition and a Frank Sinatra edition.

    The article was good and informative. I was going through an article in Forbes which wrote that an Indian whisky brand Officer’s Choice sold 28.4 million cases of 9 liters each. This is more than double the volume of Jack Daniel and thus makes it world’s largest selling whisky brand. I thought it would be helpful for you to revise your data. Thanks.
