Tennessee whiskey is straight bourbon whiskey produced in Tennessee. However, most current producers of Tennessee whiskey disclaim references to their products as "Bourbon" and do not label them as such on any of their bottles or advertising materials.
Jack Daniel's is a brand of sour mash Tennessee whiskey that is the highest selling American whiskey in the world. It is produced in Lynchburg, Tennessee, by the Jack Daniel Distillery, which has been owned by the Brown-Forman Corporation since 1956. Despite being the location of a major operational distillery, Jack Daniel's home county of Moore is a dry county, so the product is not available for consumption at stores or restaurants within the county.
Although the product generally meets the regulatory criteria for classification as a straight bourbon, the company disavows this classification and markets it simply as Tennessee whiskey rather than as Tennessee bourbon. Packaged in distinctive square bottles, a total of 11 million cases of the flagship "Black Label" product were sold in the company's fiscal year ended April 30, 2013.
Single barrel whiskey
Gentleman Jack is a brand of Tennessee whiskey produced by the Jack Daniel's Distillery. It was introduced to the American market in 1988. The product's bottle describes itself as "Rare Tennessee Whiskey".
The Gentleman Jack brand was introduced to strengthen the company's share among consumers, who were drinking less liquor overall but had moved to more upscale brands, a development noted by many liquor manufacturers in the United States in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It is twice filtered through charcoal, as opposed to a single filtering for normal Jack Daniel's, this results in a smoother taste more suitable for drinking neat. A celebration unveiling Gentleman Jack was held on 30 September 1988 when 1,000 guests were invited to the company's headquarters in Lynchburg, Tennessee. They could not actually partake of the new product because Lynchburg is in a dry county.
Single barrel whiskey (or single cask whisky) is a premium class of whisky in which each bottle comes from an individual aging barrel, instead of being created by blending together the contents of various barrels to provide uniformity of color and taste. Even whiskeys that are not blends may be combined from more than one batch, or even from differing years to achieve their consistency. The whiskey from each barrel is bottled separately, with each bottle bearing the barrel number and in most cases the dates for the beginning and end of aging. Each barrel is thought to contribute unique characteristics to the finished whiskey.
Single barrels may further be at cask strength or non-chill-filtered to further avoid adulterating the taste of a cask.
Lincoln County Process
Jasper Newton "Jack" Daniel (September 5, 1850 – October 10, 1911) was an American distiller and the founder of Jack Daniel's Tennessee whiskey distillery.
Jack was the youngest of ten children born to Calaway and Lucinda (née Cook) Daniel. Jack Daniel's paternal grandparents immigrated to America in the late 18th century. His grandfather Joseph "Job" Daniel was born in Wales, while his grandmother, Elizabeth Calaway, was born in Scotland. He was of Welsh, Scots-Irish and Scottish descent.
The Lincoln County Process is a step used in producing some Tennessee whiskeys. The whiskey is filtered through, or steeped in, charcoal chips before going into the casks for aging. The process is named for Lincoln County, Tennessee, which was the location of Daniel's distillery at the time of its establishment; subsequent redrawing of county lines means that none of the distilleries currently using the process are located in the county for which the process is named.
The charcoal used by Jack Daniel's is created on site, from stacks of two by two inch sugar maple timbers called "ricks". They are primed with 140 proof Jack Daniel's, and then ignited under massive hoods that help prevent sparks. Once they have reached the char state, the ricks are sprayed with water to prevent complete combustion. The resulting charcoal is then run through a grinder to reduce it to consistent bean-size pellets. These are then packed into 10-foot (3.0 m) vats, where they are used to filter impurities from the 140 proof whiskey, after which the whiskey is reduced with water to 125 proof for aging.
