Set off fairly early today and drove south through Tennessee listening to Johnny Cash. We drove to Lynchburg which is a dry county so no alcohol can be bought here. Lynchburg is famous for Jack Daniels.

We drove up to the distillery gates and they say “Welcome to Jack Daniels” The distillery has tours every 30 minutes and they are free.

We first watched a video on the estate and the employees. Then started the tour where we looked around the brickyard where the make the charcoal which the pure whiskey is dripped through, then onto the pure spring water, and into the fermenting rooms and the barreling room and in to the storage warehouses. We then bought a small sample of rare jack.
