Officially established in 1866, The Jack Daniel Distillery was the very first registered distillery within the U.S., with Jack Daniel as the first Master Distiller. After Jack died, Lem Motlow, his nephew, took over the distillery during the greatest challenges of the Prohibition and Great Depression. Today, Jack Daniel’s is the top selling American whiskey in the world, produced in Lynchburg, Tennessee.
Bottled at 94-proof, Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Select carries notes of caramel, spice, and everything nice! This Tennessee whiskey draws distinct flavors from the barrel such as bright fruit notes and sweet aromatics. Great for an autumn brunch…this one of a kind whiskey makes the perfect Tennessee mimosa that will keep your guests pouring for more!
