Collection Jack Daniel's - Bourbon Whiskey
Jack Daniel's is a brand of Tennessee whiskey and the best-selling whiskey in the world. It is made in Lynchburg, Tennessee by Jack Daniel's Distillery, owned by Brown-Forman Corporation since 1956.
The product meets regulatory criteria for straight bourbon classification, although the company chooses not to use that classification. It markets the drink as "Tennessee Whiskey" rather than "Tennessee Bourbon".
Jack Daniel's mash is made from corn, rye and malted barley and distilled in copper stills. It is then filtered through 10 ft (3.0 m) stacks of sugar maple charcoal. The company refers to this filtering step as "mellowing". This extra step, known as the Lincoln County Process, removes corn impurities and flavor.
The product label mentions that this is a "sour mash" whiskey, meaning that when the mash is made, some of the wet solids from a previously used batch are mixed in to help the fermentation process run more smoothly.
After being used to age Jack Daniel's Whiskey, many casks are sent to Scotland where they are used to make Scotch Whiskey. Some casks are leased from Glenmorangie Distillery.
