Jack Daniel's Whiskey Distillery: The History, Design and Innovation

Friday, September 25, 2015
Who was Jack Daniels? Most of us are familiar with the name Jack Daniels, even if you aren’t a whiskey fan like me.  Jack Daniels was born in Tennessee in 1850 and died there in 1911. 


He was a small man, only 5 foot 2 inches and he is also a man of style. 

Growing up in Tennessee, Jack Daniels learned how to make whiskey at the age of 7. He learned from a man in town who ran a small distillery. After some time, the whiskey became popular and the man began to be pressured to choose one over the other he chose religion over whiskey and sold Jack the business.  At 13, Jack Daniel officially owned his own whiskey business! The industry, which he helped to found in Tennessee, is today one of the biggest operations in the nation and one of the most popular American name brands of all time. 

One of Tennessee’s most famous trademarks has been Jack Daniel’s whiskey.
The Sinatra Select has quickly become a favorite bottle of many collectors. It was sold in a very sturdy gift box and came with a small booklet explaining the relationship between Jack Daniel’s and Frank Sinatra.
Jack Daniel's is the oldest registered distillery in the country. The company has produced many different bottles for its whiskey, and older bottles are highly sought-after by collectors.

It is one of the first designed jugs made for Jack Daniels.
