In spite of the familiarity with Jack Daniel's, numerous individuals don't know much about the historical backdrop of the refinery or the man who began it. We all know Jack Daniel's and it's an easily recognized name even in houses situated in dry regions. Yet, do you truly know Jack? Well, after reading this rundown of fact, you just might know this famous whiskey.

It's the best-selling American spirit

Jack Daniel's sold nearly $3 billion worth of whiskey in 2014. Seeing as the normal bottle is around $20 that is 150 million bottles of Jack Daniel's. That number may be diminished by a million or so taking after the passing of Lemmy, yet it ought to keep JD well in front of the competition in any case.

It's made in a dry county

The top of the line American whiskey is made in a region where it can't be retailed. Lynchburg in Moore County has been a dry city since Prohibition, even after repeal. While you can visit the office and taste the whiskey, you can't purchase Jack Daniel's where it's made.

You can completely purchase Jack Daniel's at the distillery

While the area is dry and you can't buy whiskey, there is nothing prohibiting the offer of bottles. A commemorative bottle sets you back around the same cost as a bottle of Gentleman Jack and simply happens to come loaded with the same item.

You can purchase your own barrel

It's not cheap, but rather in the event that you need your own single barrel, you can go to the refinery and taste straight from them. You can then pick your favorite and purchase the whole barrel. If you can't make it to Tennessee, you can call or send an email and let them know your taste preferences then have them choose for you.
