Diageo spars with Brown-Forman

  • Diageo (DEO +0.4%) is sparring with Brown-Forman (BF.A, BF.B) in Tennessee over rules governing the production and labeling of whiskey.
  • Brown-Forman got a helping hand from the Tennessee legislature to give an unfair advantage over large and small distillers, claims Diageo.

    Jack Daniel's is pure Tennessee. No reason not to protect it against foreign interests like UK's Diageo.

    Protect against foreign interests by specifying the freshness of the oak barrels. Diageo is just poking fun at Brown-Forman at their own games.
