What are the best whisky producers in the world? Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about this topic. There is continuous high demand around the world for distilled spirits like whisky. In fact, the distilled spirits industry recorded its 19th-consecutive year of growing sales volumes in the U.S in 2016, at 220.1 million 9-liter cases, according to the Beverage Information Group, a market research firm that specializes in gauging sales and industry trends for wines, spirits, and beer.
Brown spirits like whisky have significantly contributed to that growth, given the recent increased interest in such drinks. In fact, makers of whisky generally enjoyed healthy sales growth last year, accounting for 55.4 million 9-liter cases in spirits sales in 2016, across the five categories: straight whisky, blended whisky, Canadian whisky, Scotch whisky, and Irish whisky. With that hefty volume of sales, whisky accounted for about one of every distilled spirit bottle sold in the U.S.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three producers from their list. The first company is Campari America. Total 9-liter cases of whisky sold by Campari America are 636,000. Notable whisky brands (and type) is Wild Turkey (straight). Teh next company in our list is William Grant & Sons. Total 9-liter cases of whisky sold by William Grant & Sons are 641,000. Notable whisky brands (and type) are Clan McGregor (Scotch), Tullamore Dew (Irish). At last, but not least we are mentioning Bacardi USA. Total 9-liter cases of whisky sold by Bacardi USA are 641,000. Notable whisky brands (and type) is House of Dewar’s (Scotch).
As for me, I don’t really like whisky and any kind of short spirits, only good wine, beer and champagne. But i must confess I enjoy reading about this topic pretty much. If you do, too you are at the right place now.
