It's the best-selling American spirit

Jack Daniel's sold nearly $3 billion worth of whiskey in 2014. Seeing as the normal bottle is around $20 that is 150 million bottles of Jack Daniel's. That number may be diminished by a million or so taking after the passing of Lemmy, yet it ought to keep JD well in front of the competition in any case.

It's made in a dry county

The top of the line American whiskey is made in a region where it can't be retailed. Lynchburg in Moore County has been a dry city since Prohibition, even after repeal. While you can visit the office and taste the whiskey, you can't purchase Jack Daniel's where it's made.
