Jack Daniels is a Tennessee whiskey. Jack Daniels uses a different process by  Charcoal Mellowing their whiskey drop by drop, then letting it age in thier own handcrafted barrels. Unlike many other whiskeys Jack Daniels does not have a certain amount of time it matures. Jack Daniels Tennessee Sippin’ Whiskey is ready only when tasters say it is. Instead of using a calender they use their senses, just like Jack Daniel himself did. In fact, more than a century later, the Tennessee Whiskey is still judged the same way. By the way it looks. By the way it smells. And of course, by the way it tastes.
 

Jack Daniel believed “Every day we make it, we’ll make it the best we can.” For      him, that meant mellowing his whiskey drop by drop through ten feet of sugar  maple charcoal.
Experience determines maturity. It’s what a whiskey experiences while inside the barrel and not simply how long it’s been there that gives it the rich color, character, and taste that we call mature. Mellowing whiskey through ten feet of sugar maple charcoal and placement in the barrelhouse—each contributes to how Jack Daniels whiskey matures. Age by itself isn’t a reliable measure of a whiskey’s quality and character.
The typical grain mixture for bourbon, known as the mash bill, is 70% corn  with the remainder being wheat and/or rye, and malted barley. The use of a mash bill that contains a relatively large percentage of wheat produces what is known as a wheated bourbon. The grain is ground and mixed with water. Usually, though not always, mash from a previous distillation is added to ensure a consistent pH across batches and a mash produced in that manner is referred to as a sour mash. Finally, yeast is added and the mash is fermented. The fermented mash, which is referred to as the wash, is then distilled to typically between 65% and 80% alcohol. Distillation was historically performed using an alembic or pot still, although in modern production, the use of a continuous still is much more common.
       Jack Daniels gives us many memorable night and even more night we can’t remember. No matter the situation or the occassion there is never a better choice than bringing everybodys best friend with you, good
                                                                                        ole Jack Daniels.
