Is American Whisky popular outside of the USA and Canada?
Only Jack Daniel’s, but it’s too expensive so people just buy local whisky
I see what you're doing there lad.
Just as ingredient in drinks. Jack Daniels + coke is pretty popular.
But drinking this disgusting shit pure? No way.
Jack Daniel's is popular in France, where we drink the most whisky per capita in the world. That's what my friends and I always get when we want something stronger than beer.
It is but only as a "cool" drink since it's too fucking expensive compared to other brands.
in France, where we drink the most whisky per capita in the world
Genuinely shocked by this stat desu.
Jack + Coke tastes like cough syrup.
Straight Jack was always more tolerable for me
Being surprised that the French are alcoholics
Jack Daniels is popular here. I like a Jack and Coke although I've come to think Jameson is nicer
Of whisky though, yes.
honestly speaking JD is garbage but can understand how it's a popular export. id rather not drink than only drink that shit in a night
move out the way motherfuckers
Pretty shitty stuff too, mate.
name a better kraut whiskey
Asbach is good, but I never see it here
It's a good starter whiskey
Rye > Bourbon
Jack Daniels is apparently successful outside the US but why. It is overpriced and average. There are a lot of good bourbons and other whiskeys in the USA but people only know jack which is always drank with a mixer
They marketed themselves very well, that's pretty much it
Jack Daniels and Jim Beam yes. But they're considered for plebs.
based and leafpilled
Jim Beam is like $14 a bottle here, how much is it in Switzerland, if you know?
American whiskey and bourbon whiskey is pretty popular in Australia, probably our most popular premixed drinks are American brands, desu.
$14 a bottle
Fucking wew lad, a 700ml bottle of Jimmy goes for 45AUD here.
It's 750ml here for 14USD here.
I guess around here we've traded healthcare for alcohol.
Forgot to add: I'd expect those prices from some Scandi nation and not Australia though.
Are local whisk(e)ys cheaper there?
I was at a fancy whisky bar it it was all a big fucking meme
I drank a 1 ounce shot that cost $230 and it tasted like shit
didn’t they rip off jim beam
Yes, mostly for women
you’re a meme
jack daniels is garbage, its 100% marketing
That's the average price for a 700ml bottle of spirits, desu.
Expensive whisky is a meme
It's like drinking liquid wood that burns, even steel reserve is better and MUCH cheaper
GET OUTTA MY WAY!!! I'M GONNA SAY THE N WORD!!
jesus fuck I see why goon bags are so popular in Australia, then
I thought I had it bad here because I live in the South, which is Baptist land, and they despise alcohol
Bulleit Bourbon is great, but Bulleit Rye is kino.
1 ounce shot that cost $230
What and how?
Yes, here it is
It was a Christmas work party so the company was paying for everything lmao
YOU CAN'T SAY THE N WORD
Why did you think that it was a good idea to spend that much on a single fucking shot?
Yeah, I like a Jim Beam and Coke. It tastes better than Jack and is cheaper as well.
Absolutely, Jim Beam and coke costs little.
Substitute Old Crow for Jim Beam and it's even cheaper.
the rye is god tier
BASED RYE WHISKEY
whiskey is for fedoralords
meme as a catchall
recommends steel reserve
I’m trying to bully you, sir.
$230 for a shot is pretty silly, considering pouring yourself a perfectly enjoyable shot costs anywhere from $3-$10. I’ve really got to give to the guy who decided to sell the bottle at like $2,000.
Remember then six packs of woodies were sold in 440ml can for $15? Good times, man.
I used to drink Strongbow when it was $12 a six pack, before they changed the bottles, cider became the hip thing and suddenly my nice cheap cider was $18 a six pack almost overnight. Not so good times, man.
kek, good work senpai.
My absolute favourite. Always get a bottle when it's on sale. (it is rather pricey over here. £25 for 700ml most of the time)
Wish Old Crow still used it's old recipe so I could see what it was that made Congressmen get into brawls over it
Whiskey is the only drink the US makes that's worth a damn
£25 for 700ml most of the time
Sounds about right, here (Tennessee), it's about $30 for a standard bottle. Definitely a bit pricier than I'd be willing to pay.
Spirit's get raped by taxes so stuff like JD and jameson and Jim Beam and pretty much anything like that all floats around $35-$45 a bottle. There isn't really anything cheaper except occasionally really terrible vodka.
uninformed opinion alert
Aussieland has a rather high cost of living in general. Being all the way down there and importing a lot of their shit.
muh Tito's handmade
Bourbon and Tennessee (which is just snowflake bourbon) are America's liquor. It's what you have always done and it's what you do well. No one cares about your small batch, maker's label, special reserve, distiller's choice, limited release, double aged, classic recipe, triple distilled, meme liquor that somebody else has been doing better and longer.
Let's make it clear
Other places have other liquors they specialise in but these are the only ones that matter.
We have almost the same retarded prices for alcohol. It's the taxes
pic related in the most popular brand in France
For some reason the French drink a lot of whisky
really suprised india is that high
Spirit's are taxed straight on alcohol content not value. Same with beer but to a lesser extent. That's why it costs so much.
I'm not sure why though because wine is only taxed on its value so you get 4.4L of goon for 10 bucks
internationally, yeah, that is true. I wouldn’t trust anything from a big brand name that says “special” on it, or anything like that. of course, local breweries make some tasty beers and things of that nature. some moonshine recipes are pretty tasty too.
the average american liquor store is awful, not sure how the rest of the world compares, but you can find some very interesting things if you know where to shop.
for instance, most people here smoke North American cigarettes, which are absolute garbage. but, if you find a good loose tobacco company and them roll your own cigarettes using a machine, you’re set.
this probably feeds into the culture of hipsterism and being into slightly obscure things on purpose.
It's like how any beer which advertises itself as a premium lager is always complete dogshit.
Unironically drunk on Jack Daniels right now about to fall asleep before vomiting
I'd recommend pic related to anyone who likes bourbon or would like to try something new; It's one of the better bottles I've had. One caveat however, my Canadian friends tell me it's much more expensive for them than the $28 I pay here.
Not what I would have expected.
We don't have sazerac rye in my province but it's made by Buffalo Trace and a regular 750ml bottle of Buffalo Trace bourbon is $42 Canadian which is $31.50 USDollars.
Is that your first time trying rye instead of bourbon? It's a lot better
Canada makes the best "Canadian whisky". American rye has to contain mostly rye, while Canadian doesn't
Rye whiskey in general is still mostly associated with Canadian rye
In my experience, if someone wants a Canadian whisky, they'll ask for that rather than for rye. The terms aren't nearly as interchangeable in the rest of the world as they are in Canada.
Rye and Canadian are synonymous. It is true that we have less rules as do the Irish while you and the Scots have stricter rules. Both have their pros and cons. Your's are consistent but not very different, especially at a single price point. In Canada, or Ireland, you can get rotgut shit for $30 one day then a wildly different and excellent bottle for $30 next time. We do have 100% rye whisky and it can be godtier.
I like that America is having a ryennaisance right now and I like a lot of the ryes coming out of the states. I think it has to do with the age and maturity of the hipsters. Bourbon is a young man's whiskey, rye is a middle-aged man's whisky, and Scotch is an old man's whisky.

How does that work? Most things are priced according to quality.

Interesting viewpoint. I think America's explosion of craft alcohol is due to our lack of choice since Prohibition. Back in the 80s your choices were Bud or Coors, bourbon or Canadian, etc.
I've had a lot of whiskeys, rye is certainly become my favorite genre though.
Is Mat Ken american?
Good taste coming through, fuck off zoomers
That's the problem with quality here, we have basically no distillery rules so often the only measure of quality is personal preference. A bourbon has to follow certain rules, aged for a minimum amount of time, containing so much of an ingredient, aged in a particular type of barrel, etc.
Canada basically has no such rules, for the most part they can make it out of whatever they want, however they want, label whatever they want, then just charge an arbitrary price. So depending on your personal preference you could get a great bottle or a shit bottle at exactly the same price. It's the same in Ireland
After prohibition your choices were very limited. Canadian Club is called that because America passed a law saying it had to be labeled Canadian. During prohibition liquor was smuggled from Canada to the US where it went by the name Club whisky. After prohibition ended Americans like Club whisky so much that it threatened the American whiskey industry prompting the U.S. government to require all Canadian whisky (and probably other liquors too) to be labeled with the country of origin, assuming that Americans would buy American instead if they were aware. Recently Canadian Club saw increases in profits as a result of Mad Men (Don Draper's preferred brand).
*blocks your path*
It's full of expats from around the world, only 20% of the UAE population are native Emiratis. So 80% are from elsewhere, mostly India and Pakistan. They allow expats to drink at home and in certain bars and restaurants.
Should also say that a lot of Muslims, particularly rich ones or largely westernised ones, rarely care as much about all of the rules.
From somebody who works in the business of selling spirits, bourbons are quite popular. Stuff like Elijah Craig/Bulleit/Woodford Reserve is popular.
