Nov 20, 2015 - Jack Daniels

Today we slept in and then went to the Jack Daniels Distillery in Lynchburg. It was about an hour drive from Nashville and the Lonely Planet book said to go there as a thing to do when you are in Memphis but it was like a 4 hour drive but from Nashville it's only one! The drive was lovely. So many gorgeous farms (sorry I should say ranches) and lovely scenery. I love looking at the old barns that are all decrepit coz they look so stunning with the Autumn backdrop. Really makes me want to live in the country! The distillery is in its...

J in the USA!

Jun 15, 2015 - Alabama and Tennessee

When we booked our reservations for Sherling Lake Park for two weeks we knew we might have trouble finding things to do there but since we don’t like to travel on holiday weekends it seemed to be the best option. It turned out that we spent our time enjoying the peace and quiet the campground afforded; even Memorial Day weekend wasn’t busy. The campground doesn’t have a pool or other activities for kids so it is not really a place where young families go for their camping adventures. We had a very nice site with a huge shade tree that...

Oct 19, 2013 - Jack Daniels Distillery

Hello Everyone, Today we continued our southward trip toward Florida, traveling purposely thru Lynchburg, Tennessee to see the Jack Daniels distillery! We got there early and got a tour of the entire facility. Unfortunately, they would not let us take any photo's of any of the production facilities...rats! We saw where they burn the wood to make ash for dripping their whisky thru it to give it its color and taste. We then saw how they make barrels, and a look inside one of their Barrel Houses! I asked how to decode their date codes stamped...

Jul 27, 2013 - George Dickel, Jack Daniels, and Redwood

July 27, 2013-We are finally going to get to the drinkin’, or at least the touring. We got up early, hooked up, and scooted over to Manchester, Tennessee, which has a nice KOA campground not far from the George Dickel and Jack Daniels distilleries. We got the trailer and the cat settled, then headed out for George Dickel’s place near Tullahoma. The George Dickel Distillery is out in the middle of nowhere and we had no competition getting there. When we arrived there was us and one other couple waiting to take a tour. Unfortunately the...

Jan 4, 2013 - Spent Some Time Getting to Know my Uncle Jack better today ...

I'll have to admit, I don't know Uncle Jack very well, but I've heard a lot about him from many people. Actually, I'm speaking of Jack Daniels, who really isn't my uncle, but for today I thought it appropriate. We visited and did a tour of the Jack Daniels Distillery in Lynchburg TN. Here they make the most famous Tennessee Whiskey in the world, with a very distinctive process that includes something we are very familiar with in Wisconsin ... maple trees. They make charcoal from maple trees and use it as a "drop by drop" filter of every...

Winter 2013

Oct 26, 2011 - Nashville To Lynchburg

Had breakfast with Jim and Diane and then it was time to part ways. I must admit that the goodbyes were pretty emotional. I will miss these dear friends this winter. What better way to perk up my spirits that to visit the Jack Daniels Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee. What I didn't realize was that Lynchburg is located in a dry county so there were no "spirits" to lift my spirits - somehow the lemonade just didn't cut it! Bettie, our guide, was an absolute hoot! So entertaining - a real Tennessee charmer. The tour lasted an hour and 20...

Oct 25, 2011 - Jack Daniels Distillery and Pontoon Boat Rides!

Another glorious morning with temperatures promising to soar up to the low 80s, bright and sunny outside and we were all up and raring to go! However, first order of business was to revamp the kennel for the pups to ensure Rocky won’t jump out of it again. So, Jerry and Rudy headed down to the barn area to work on it while Nan and I got things straightened up and ready for our outing! After a while, Nan and I decided to walk down and see if we could lend a helping hand and check on the progress. They were almost done and we just helped do...

Jun 24, 2011 - Lynchburg, Tennessee

We made a side trip to Lynchburg, TN to see the Jack Daniel's Distillery. They had tours , but NO tasting since it is a "DRY" county. It was pretty interesting. He bought his first still at 13 from a pastor and delivered drinks to civil war soldiers. He died after he kicked his safe, & got an infection in his toe. It's still quite a place. They use the whiskey barrels only once then sell them to other distilleries. I think Carl really had a neat time there (better than the museums I have taken him to- go figure!)

2011 Road Trip

Nov 16, 2010 - Jack Daniel's Lynchburg, Tennessee

Another rainy day in Middle Tennessee, but that didn’t stop us from our appointed destination for the day--Lynchburg. It was a short 25 mile drive from Shelbyville to Lynchburg through hilly rural Tennessee countryside. A pleasant drive except for the pouring rain. We arrived at Jack Daniel Distillery in time for the first tour of the day. Jack Daniel’s was established in 1866 and has the distinction of being the oldest registered distillery in America. Our first stop on the tour was at the rickyard. The thing that distinguishes Jack...

Scratchin' the Itch

Mar 25, 2010 - Lynchburg, TN

Spring is emerging in the state of Tennessee. Many trees in bloom, grasses are greening up and small wild flowers abound. On the way to Chattanooga we were drawn to the Jack Daniel's Distillery in Lynchburg. This is the nation's oldest registered distillery and was started by Jack Daniels when he was 16 years old. As the story goes, he was taught, at the age of 7, how to make whiskey by a minister. Our tour guide was a native of Lynchburg, had the dryest sense of humor, and kept us laughing the entire time with her stories of Jack and his...

Where is Tortuga?

Oct 22, 2009 - Jack Daniel Distillery

Lynchburg, one of the best known places in all of rural America. They are big on hospitality here despite the 500+/- population. The Civil War and the Reconstruction years brought change to the tiny town. In 1866 the distillery was established. Today more than 100 buildings are listed on the National Register(historic). Tennessee is on a limestone plateau, lending itself to perfect Tennessee whiskey production. This means the spring water is pure, no sulphur, no lead. There are several common factors at each distillery. Location is a...
