In 1864, Jack Newton Daniel leaves home and is taken in by Reverend Dan Call. At the Call family farm, he learns the art of whiskey making from the preacher and an enslaved man named Nathan “Nearest” Green. Jack would later hire Nearest as the Jack Daniel Distillery’s head distiller, what we call the Master Distiller today.
In 1866 The Jack Daniel Distillery is officially established, making it the very first registered distillery within the US, with Jack as the Master Distiller. The opening of his now-famous distillery would follow shortly thereafter, right next to Jack Daniel’s prime resource: the mineral-rich Cave Spring Hollow.
Later the no.7 whiskey is introduced, and in 1904, Old No. 7 takes a gold medal at the World’s Fair in St. Louis, Missouri. It’s the first of seven gold medals Old No. 7 is awarded.
The Old no. 7 is mellowed drop by drop through 10-feet of sugar maple charcoal, then matured in handcrafted barrels of our own making. And the Tennessee Whiskey doesn’t follow a calendar. It’s only ready when the tasters say it is. It is judged by the way it looks. By its aroma. And of course, by the way, it tastes.
It’s how Jack Daniel himself did it over a century ago. And how it is still done today.
