    Most Popular Liquors In The World

    Jameson Irish Whiskey

    Ironically, a Scottish law clerk is credited with starting what has become the most popular brand of Irish whisky in the world. Today, there is just one distillery of Jameson in production, and it can be found in Cork, Ireland.


    The flagship whisky produced by the mega-distillery Radico Khaitan, the 8 PM brand is another well-known Indian brand. Because it was the first liquor brand ever to do so, the brand was recognised in the LIMCA Book of Records in 2001 for selling one million bottles in the first year after it was introduced to the market.

    Zubrówka Vodka

    There is a vanilla-scented plant that is called bison grass, and it is the secret ingredient in this Polish vodka. You may have a difficult time finding this component in any other alcohol. Not only is the vodka infused with a substance that is unlawful in the United States, but also, each bottle of Zubrówka has an actual blade. This is the most obvious method to tell Zubrówka apart from its imitators.

    Khortytsa Vodka

    This Ukrainian vodka brand had sales of over 176 million bottles in 2019, split between the home market and its export sector, which encompassed more than 87 countries. Due to the spirit’s widespread availability, it now ranks among the top three best-selling vodkas in the entire world.

    Jim Beam Whiskey

    Jim Beam, a giant in the bourbon industry, has been available on the international market for more than two centuries, and very little has changed about the way it is produced in that time. Since the beginning of the company’s history, the distillery has consistently utilised the same ratio of maize, rye, and barley, which results in the original flavour having a palate that is reminiscent of brown sugar and orange.

    Absolut Vodka

    Absolut has been a consistent presence in the spirit industry in the United States ever since the company was founded in 1979. Absolut is most famous for its minimalist branding and its unorthodox (yet successful) marketing strategies. At the time of its release, its logo was seen as uncommon due to the fact that it deviated from the more traditional Russian-inspired bottle designs that were predominant in the market. This caused it to stand out from the crowd.

    Haywards Fine Whisky

    Another product offered by Diageo India, this whisky hails from the subcontinent. According to the company’s annual report, in 2021, combined sales of Haywards, McDowell’s No.1 Celebration, and McDowell’s No.1 contributed to five per cent of Diageo’s total net sales in the category of Indian-made foreign liquor (IMFL).

    Captain Morgan Rum

    The legendary figure from whom this spiced rum takes its name actually existed. In point of fact, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II hired the services of Sir Henry Morgan, who was born in Wales, to protect Spanish interests in the Caribbean sea. The ruthless sailor amassed a lot of wealth during his time as a pirate captain and finally used it to purchase property in Jamaica. According to Captain Morgan, the rum has a flavour that resembles oak, vanilla, brown sugar, dried fruit, and warming spices. It also has a tinge of brown sugar.

    Jack Daniel’s Whiskey

    The Tennessee distillery that produces the famous Jack Daniel’s whisky brand is not just a popular drink, but also a destination, as evidenced by the fact that it receives more than 300,000 visitors each year. Recently, the company has started to diversify its product line, and in 2022, it introduced canned whisky drinks.

    Johnnie Walker Whisky

    In a sea of single malts, Johnnie Walker stands out as a blended Scotch whisky that is proud of its heritage. It is said that Johnnie Walker developed the blend in an effort to produce a Scotch that was more consistent, which was a response to the increasing popularity of the single malt category.

    Bacardi Rum

    Despite the fact that the label claims it is Puerto Rican, this spiced rum was really developed in Cuba. Tanduay has overtaken Bacardi as the most popular brand of rum sold around the world in recent years.

    Royal Stag Whisky

    Royal Stag whisky, which is produced by Pernod Ricard, the world’s largest producer of alcoholic beverages, is a blend of grain spirits produced locally and imported Scotch malts. The whisky is made in Nepal, although it is sold all around the world, with the majority of consumers being located in India.

    Officer’s Choice Whisky

    Along the same lines as its predecessor on this list, Officer’s Choice is an Indian whisky that is made up of both Scotch malt and Indian grain. Officer’s Choice was first introduced to the market by its parent company, Allied Blenders & Distillers, in 1988. Since then, the product’s popularity has steadily increased in the years that have followed.

    Emperador Brandy

    Emperador, a brandy with its roots in the Philippines that dominates markets around the world, Emerperador was the first brandy label to be produced in the Philippines when it was initially introduced in 1990, and its popularity has been consistently on the rise ever since.

    Tanduay Rum

    Tanduay Rum has maintained its position as the most popular rum in the world for the past four years in a row. Isla de Tanduay, the island where the country’s first distillery was located, inspired the rum’s name.

    Imperial Blue Whisky

    Since its acquisition by Pernod Ricard in 2002, Imperial Blue Indian whisky has been the company’s most successful brand in terms of volume. Because of its low cost (less than ten dollars) and mellow taste, it is a popular choice among drinkers all around the world.

    Smirnoff Vodka

    Smirnoff is the most popular brand of vodka in the world, and for a long time, it has been known for having a flavour that is both smooth and silky, winning out the competition in blind tastings. Even while its unflavored variant is its most popular product, Smirnoff’s other flavours (exactly 33 of them) and it’s Smirnoff Ice malt liquor soda have helped to establish the brand as a household name in the RTD and vodka markets respectively.

    McDowell’s No.1 Whisky

    McDowell’s brand of whisky, owned by the multinational conglomerate Diageo, came out on top in the whisky category in 2021, with its iconic No.1 variety claiming the number three slot in terms of popularity.

    Ginebra San Miguel Gin

    Only one of the two gins included on this list is manufactured by Ginebra San Miguel, which is located in Manila, Philippines, and is owned and operated by a family. Ginebra first appeared on the scene in 1834, and it has been able to maintain its prominence throughout the nearly two centuries that have passed since then.

    Jinro Soju

    The best-selling spirit brand in the world is Jinro, which offers one makguli and nine different varieties of soju. Since Jinro is the most popular brand of soju in Korea and internationally, its unique green bottle has become an icon of the spirit. Jinro may be enjoyed both on its own and as an ingredient in various cocktails.
