    "Jack Daniel's has no better friends than the men and women of our nation's military and our veterans," Jack Daniel's Master Distiller Jeff Arnett told CNBC. Parent company Brown-Forman says the U.S. military buys the most barrels of Jack Daniel's 94-proof Single Barrel Whiskey. While U.S. drinkers are guilty of downing lots of brown liquor, it turns out that America's oldest registered whiskey distillery has a particularly affectionate relationship with the U.S. military.

    Sales rise sharply at Brown-Forman in 4Q but profit down

    Brown-Forman Corp. on Wednesday reported yearlong net sales growth across its spirits lineup — including its flagship Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey brand — but said fourth-quarter earnings declined due to costs associated with the creation of a charitable foundation and operating expenses. The Louisville, Kentucky-based company said underlying net sales — or sales excluding acquisitions, divestitures and other nonrecurring events — grew by 5 percent in its U.S. markets for the entire fiscal year. It reported net sales growth in a host of key overseas markets, including double-digit increases in Mexico, Germany, Russia and Brazil, along with single-digit growth in other key markets such as the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland.

    Brown-Forman upped Jack Daniel's shipments as trade war loomed

    The spirit and wine maker was thrust into the spotlight last week when Mexico placed a 25 percent tariff on bourbon imports in response to President Trump's imposition of import duties on metals. The European Union has said it will also respond with levies and the company, while promising it was on top of the situation, said the issue made it hard for it to give a precise full-year outlook. It seems like every day we wake up and it takes a little bit of a twist and turn," Brown-Forman Chief Executive Paul Varga told a conference call on fourth-quarter results.
