Brown-Forman's Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey production manager is to retire after 11 years in the job.

Tommy Beam, who joined Brown-Forman in 1965, will be replaced on 31 July by Larry Combs, the head of the group's technical services, the company said yesterday (9 April). 

“Larry has demonstrated excellent leadership ability and we believe is the ideal person to take on the responsibility of managing the productions operations of our largest and most important brand,” a Brown-Forman spokesperson said.

In year-to-date results last month, Brown-Forman said strong global demand for its North American whiskey helped it post sales and profits increases.
