This is a list of whiskies that shows the best-selling whiskies from the other whiskey producing regions by volume, which is why we have the US topping the list Jack Daniel’s with 13.3M cases. This list would look very different if we included whiskies from Scotland and India with volumes of blends such as Officers choice selling in the region of 31M cases. Here we are highlighting other countries that produce whisky much overlooked in other lists of bestselling but do however deserve some recognition and brads such as Jameson, Makers Mark and JD deserve their credit as without these brands whisky in those countries globally would be over-looked.
