About Jack Daniel’s whiskey
Jack Daniel’s is a brand of whiskey produced in Lynchburg, Tennessee. Jack Daniel’s has the highest sales of any American whiskey. Jack Daniel’s is considered a Tennessee whiskey, but it also meets the standards for bourbon. Jack Daniel’s whiskey is made at the Jack Daniel Distillery, founded in 1875 by Jack Daniel. Daniel was orphaned after the death of his father during the Civil War. A local preacher essentially adopted Daniel and taught him about the distilling process – the preacher also made moonshine. After Daniel received an inheritance from his father’s death, Daniel was able to found a legal distillery with the preacher, Dan Call. Although many of the dates in Daniel’s history cannot be agreed upon, it is generally agreed that the distillery was founded in 1875.
Daniel’s whiskey received a gold medal at the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair, making the whiskey much more popular. However, temperance and the Prohibition movement was gaining steam at this point, making it more difficult to sell alcohol. In 1907, Daniel retired from the distillery, passing it on to a nephew. In 1910, Tennessee passed a prohibition law, forcing the distillery to move production to Missouri and Alabama. The products from these locations had quality issues and were also halted by state, then national, prohibition laws. Jack Daniel Distillery closed operation from 1910-1938 due to various prohibition laws. They also closed from 1942-1946, as the U.S. government outlawed whiskey because the products used to create whiskey were needed for the war effort. The Distillery is now a part of the National Register of Historic Places. It is located in a dry county today, but it is allowed to distil and sell one commemorative item to visitors.
