- Toured the Jack Daniel’s Distillery today. Fascinating! Jack was only 6 yers old when he left home. At 13, he inherited a whiskey distillery and thus began his career! They use ground corn, rye, barley, and natural spring water to make the mash. The mash is heated with yeast and the alcohol evaporates out, is collected in condensing tubes, and drips onto charcoal made from sugar maple. It’s clear as water after it passes through the charcoal. Next, it goes into new barrels which are handmade at Jack Daniel’s and left in warehouses until they have turned an amber color and taste just right. They only bottle one barrel at a time. We had a chance to smell the whiskey in the charcoal barrels—-guide told us to really breathe it in with our mouths open—-it burned my throat and felt like I had actually taken a sip! All employees get a free bottle of JD once a month along with their paychecks—-they call it good Friday! Toasty here—-100 degrees at 3PM! Onto a night tour of Music City!
