Wine Enthusiast 89 points - Familiar maple syrup color and vanilla and oak flavor, good dose of alcohol burn. Finishes relatively dry, with some vanilla and caramel. Jack and Coke is the classic combo. - K.N. (Mar 2011)
Some folks might think the label on our Old No. 7 Whiskey Bottle is kind of cluttered. But thereís a lot packed on that label. A list of gold medals Jack Danielís has won. A little history. And some of the many stories that make Jack Danielís unique.
Mr. Jack's Calling
Jack Daniel left home at an early age and was raised by a family friend named Dan Call.
Now Mr. Call was a Lutheran minister, but also owned a whiskey still just outside of Lynchburg. It was here where young Jack learned about making whiskey. In September of 1863, when Jack was only 13 years old, Call decided to devote his life to his ministry and sold him the still.
Cave Spring Water
ack Danielís Tennessee Whiskey is made with cool, pure, iron-free cave spring water from right here in the Hollow.
This water flows year-round at 800 gallons per minute at a constant temperature of 56į and is virtually iron free. Itís the reason why the Distillery was located in this spot originally Ė and why itís remained there ever since. Just outside the cave youíll find a statue of Jack Daniel. The man himself, standing guard over this prized spring.
