The world’s 10 biggest spirits brands

9th October, 2012 by db_staff

We have ranked and rated the globe’s largest international spirits brands using sales data to the end of 2011.

Jack Daniel's is the fifth most popular spiritIn spite of a global recession millions of cases of spirits are still sold around the world every year.

Whether in a cocktail, a mixer or straight-up, the world’s largest international spirits brands have proved resilient, but which are the most popular?

After a disappointing 2012, with a slight drop in sales, Bacardi has fallen behind in the race to grab the top position. Jack Daniel’s enjoyed a bumper year and a huge increase in its sales numbers saw the brand improve its position in the list.

Absolut also saw an impressive increase in its sales, but this did not translate to an improvement in its top 10 position.

Take a look through the following pages to find out the top 10 spirits brands, and let us know if you are surprised by any of the results.

  1. Daniel Cajigas says:

    Thank you for the info.

  2. This list might be right in the US but it is absolutely wrong insofar as top sales in the world. The world’s top selling brand is actually a Korean soju called Jinro. Soju is like the Korean version of vodka. Seven of the Top Ten are from India or Brazil and are not likely known to you.
