    Correct JD is owned by Brown Forman, based in Louisville, KY. Dickel on the other hand is owned by Diageo, based in London, England.

    Funny, fooking at the Diageo website, they talk about how whiskey is produced and mentions I W Harper and Bulliet (it owns the brands, but not the distilleries they are made at) yet neglects to mention Dickel, which it does own ...

    As long as you have good whiskey you're not "unemployed", you're "Funemployed!!!"

    And I rang a representative from Diageo the other day to see if Dickel was still distributed in Australia....they had no idea what I was talking about, talk about knowing the company profile!! When we had it here it was distributed by United Distillers.

    Scott, about three years ago, I used to be able to buy Dickel over the bar at Jupiters Casino on the Gold Coast.
    I was back there earlier this year, and, unfortunately, they no longer have it on their whiskey list. I asked the barman if they were getting it back in, but he knew nothing of it.

    About 8 weeks ago one of my workmates in Ballina was at a wedding at Sanctuary Cove, and they had GD behind the bar. He thought maybe it was there for decoration, and asked if he could have two Dickels. They poured him one, then cracked another bottle. He rang there the following week to find out where they get it from, and they couldn't answer his question. They also had NONE left, so someone else had obviously been drinking it too. I have one bottle here that Ive had for a few years now, and I just gave away the remains of my 10yo 1987 vintage bottle, although I filled a miniature bottle with its contents before passing it on
