On arrival at Nashville Tennessee, the guests received a hearty welcome by the Jack Daniel’s officials who treated them to some southern hospitality over a mouthwatering Jack Daniel’s infused barbeque dinner at the Hard Rock Café.

The guests were shown the oldest building in the distillery that housed Jack Daniel’s office. It has been maintained in the same condition since his death.

They were then shown how the barrels were made; each Jack Daniel’s barrel is unique in that no two barrels are made from the same wood and for that reason no two barrels taste the same. The grooves within the barrel help age the whiskey as they add richness and depth to the taste.

Later on, they were taken into the mellowing unit where a special mellowing display was set up just for them. Here they learnt about the art of charcoal mellowing and how each drop of Jack Daniel’s whiskey is then slow dripped through 10 feet of sugar maple charcoal for that smooth signature finish that makes the whiskey, Tennessee whiskey.

Following the charcoal mellowing display, the guests were taken to the tasting unit for the selection of their barrels during the tasting session where they were educated on the different variations of Jack Daniel’s whiskey. Afterwards, guests were able to choose a barrel, which was personalized with their club names.

    One question: Is there a reason some of them are wearing sunglasses indoors?

      There might be high pollen count in that zone and they are wearing them to reduce hay fever symptoms. That’s why I wear mine anyway lol

    Just this morning I was wondering what inspired the blackboard idea at BLD, where you get to write on the board. Now I see it.
