Irish whiskey sales increased globally and domestically in 2019, but will likely be facing a downturn in 2020 thanks to COVID-19.
Jameson Irish whiskey has remained the global leader in Irish whiskey sales after it shipped 8 million cases in 2019, an increase from the 7.2 million it shipped in 2018. Overall, the Irish whiskey industry enjoyed a 10.6 percent increase in 2019, according to data compiled by IWSR Drinks Market Analysis and reported upon by The Irish Times.
Tullamore Dew, a long way off from first place, sold 1.5 million cases in 2019, an increase from the 1.3 million it sold in 2018.
In third place was Bushmills, which sold 821,500 cases.
