Fun with Jack Daniels

"Basically I am for anything that gets you through the night - be it Prayer, Tranquilizers, or a bottle of Jack Daniels" ~Frank Sinatra


  • In 1904, Jack Daniels' "Old No. 7" was one of 20 Whiskeys from around the world to compete in a contest at the Worlds Fair. It won the Gold Medal as the "World's Best Whiskey"!!

  • When Visiting the Jack Daniels distillery, enjoy the aromas because that is as close as you will get to any whiskey. You can't sample any whiskey nor buy any. Why? Well, Lynchburg, Tennessee where the Distillery lies, is a dry county.

  • The First batches of Jack Daniels were sold in large ceramic jugs with big XXs printed on the side

  • The old wives tale that if you drink too much Jack Daniels you will go blind has been disproven. The only way to go blind is to break the bottle and Jab it into your face.

  • Historically Jack Daniels was registered at 90 Proof (45% by Volume) but in 2004, they lowered the proof to 80 (40%by Volume) proving once again that the terrorists had won!!
