Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey
Charcoal mellowed matured in handcrafted barrels with a balance of sweet and oaky flavor.
Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey comes from the United State’s oldest registered distillery and is charcoal mellowed through 10 feet of sugar maple. The Distillery, founded in 1866 by Mr. Jack Daniel in Lynchburg, Tennessee, is one of the most well-known producers of whiskey in the world. Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey is made with the finest corn, rye and barley malt. Its distinctive character is a result of natural fermentation, careful distillation, and use of the Distillery’s iron-free water from the Cave Spring that runs at a constant 56° F.
Though they do have a great deal in common, Tennessee Whiskey and Bourbon are not the same. While both must be made from a grain mash bill of at least 51% corn and then left to age in unused, charred white oak barrels, what makes Tennessee Whiskey special is the charcoal filtering process that occurs just before the new-make spirit is transferred to barrel. Known as the Lincoln County Process, this filtering strips off some of the harsher flavor notes, making Tennessee Whiskey smooth and approachable.
