ABOUT JACK DANIEL’S
Every drop of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey is made in Lynchburg Tennessee (pop. 361) at America’s oldest registered distillery. The folks there still use the same care and methods that Mr. Jack Daniel established back in 1866. This commitment to quality, along with the unique charcoal-mellowed flavour, has led to Jack Daniel’s fame around the world. A simple reminder that quality and responsibility never go out of style.
