Jack Daniel's

Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey is distilled and bottled in Lynchburg, Tennessee at America's oldest registered distillery dating back to 1866. Every drop of Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey is mellowed drop by drop through 10 feet of sugar maple charcoal, a unique whiskey process that Mr. Jack insisted upon using and that Jack Daniel Distillery still uses to this day. This charcoal mellowing process refines Jack Daniel's rich flavor even before it is matured in charred white oak barrels. It is from the toasted oak barrels that the whiskey gets its rich amber color, distinctive flavor, and finish. Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey is culturally authentic with a rich heritage and is globally recognized as an iconic brand. www.jackdaniels.com
