You’re sitting around a roaring fire on a chilly winter’s day with a good book in hand or you’re out basking in the summer sun with your friends. What do you see by your side?
Experts in quality and craftsmanship since 1866, the brand was born from Jasper ‘Jack’ Daniel who worked tirelessly to perfect the Old No.7, a charcoal-mellowed Tennessee whiskey. Soon this would become his signature, inspiring him to perfect the art of bourbon whiskey making, before opening up the very first Jack Daniel Distillery. Today, the brand still honours the integrity of the whiskey-making traditions, including mellowing the whiskey drop-by-drop.
Dipping their toe into refreshing blends, such as Jack Daniel’s Apple and Jack Daniel’s Honey, the brand has thought of everything; a flavourful whiskey for every occasion.
Is Jack Daniels a whiskey or a bourbon?Technically, Jack Daniels is a Tennessee Whiskey. It's made in Lynchburg, TN and must be distilled from at least 51% corn. Most bourbons are made in Kentucky, and must be distilled from at least 51% corn and aged in charred new oak barrels. So Jack Daniels is technically a bourbon, but it doesn't meet all the requirements to be called a bourbon. That's why it's called a Tennessee Whiskey.
Can Jack Daniels go bad?It depends on how you store it. If you keep it in a cool, dark place, Jack Daniels can last for decades. But if you store it in a hot, humid place, the ethanol will start to evaporate and the whiskey will go bad. So the answer is yes, but only if you don't store it properly.
