NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 11, 2014) A battle between the owners of rival brands Jack Daniel's and its smaller rival George Dickel is being waged over which company has the right to label its whiskey as authentic Tennessee style.
British-based liquor conglomerate Diageo PLC on Tuesday prevailed in getting state regulators to drop an investigation into allegations that Dickel violated state law by aging its whiskey in neighboring Kentucky.
But the calm is likely to be short-lived.
State lawmakers are expected to considerer changes once again this summer to the legal definition of Tennessee whiskey, which is as entwined in the state's identity as Maine lobsters and Maryland crab cakes.
