Jack Daniels 1970s
Its very rare to see any Jack Daniels older than ten years old in the bottle, try and find one from the 70s and its almost impossible. But I have one.
Jack Daniel’s is a brand of Tennessee whiskey and the top 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 purchase at stores or restaurants within the county.
The product meets the regulatory criteria for classification as a straight bourbon, though the company disavows this classification and markets it simply as Tennessee whiskey rather than as Tennessee bourbon. The Jack Daniel’s founder, Jasper Newton “Jack” Daniel, was born in 1850.
The mash for Jack Daniel’s is made from corn, rye, and malted barley, and is distilled in copper stills. It is then filtered through 10-foot stacks of sugar maple charcoal. The company refers to this filtering step as “mellowing”. This extra step, known as the Lincoln County Process, removes impurities and the taste of corn. A distinctive aspect of the filtering process is that the Jack Daniel’s brand grinds its charcoal before using it for filtering. After the filtering, the whiskey is stored in newly handcrafted oak barrels, which give the whiskey its colour and most of its flavour.
Level- Bottom of shoulder (I know this may sound low but its not, the very cheap plastic stoppers they used in the 1970s means all bottles of this period are of this level, the whisky inside is fantastic)
