Sales of Jameson whiskey passed the four million cases mark in the six months to December 31.

The spirit reported year-on-year value growth of 8pc, and volume growth of 6pc, during the period, according to results from parent company Irish Distillers.

Standout regions included Sub-Saharan Africa, which saw 40pc growth (excluding South Africa), and Asia, where Jameson enjoyed 50pc growth in India.

“Jameson continues to thrive and is now in double or triple-digit growth in more than 70 markets across the world,” said Irish Distillers chairman and CEO Conor McQuaid.

“Consumers are appreciating the full Jameson family, particularly our super premium range, as seen by the growth of Jameson Black Barrel – up 26pc.”

The group also benefited from the performance of single pot still whiskey – made in the traditional fashion – with Redbreast experiencing value growth of 20pc.
