Jack Daniel’s is one of the most popular whiskey brands in the world, and the best-selling American whiskey. The company is named after its founder, Jasper Newton ‘Jack’ Daniel, who was a young orphan taken in by a local preacher and moonshine distiller. Jack Daniel learned the distilling process from his moonshine-making caretaker as well as his Master Distiller, an enslaved African-American man. In 1875, Jack Daniel started a distilling company along with his two teachers, and today, Jack Daniel’s whiskey is produced in that same distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee. Jack Daniel’s whiskey is charcoal mellowed through three metres of sugar maple charcoal and uses iron-free water from a cave spring. The brand’s most popular whiskey is the Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey, but the brand is also known for its Gentleman Jack Tennessee Whiskey, Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Collection, and Jack Daniel’s Tennesee Rye.
