Conor McGregor may or many be everyone’s chose for a whiskey maker, but he’s enjoying success based on it. McGregor took to Twitter to celebrate after a report in The Irish Times noted that his Proper No. 12 whiskey has helped push Irish whiskey above the $1 billion sales mark in the US for the year. The numbers is for the twelve-month period ending in June of 2018.

The report notes that while Jameson is still the most sold whiskey in the US, sales of that have slowed thanks in part to McGregor’s brand launch. Proper No. 12 sold out in its first ten days of sales, and has shipped 200,000 cases since launching last year.
