jack We took advantage of a break in the weather to head down to Lynchburg, TN and the Jack Daniel’s Distillery.

IMG_7554 It was a great tour even though we got absolutely drenched. It was interesting to learn that Jack Daniel’s is the only distillery in the US that makes it owns barrels. The whole process is fascinating but there is way more info than I can cover in the blog. But if you visit their web site They do a great job of explaining it. You have to enter your birth date to prove you’re over 21.

IMG_7562 While you’re there – be sure to read the stories about Ole Jack himself especially the one where he kicked the safe.

IMG_7574 We stopped in town to eat at the Caboose Bar-b-que. Cute place, but wouldn’t stop there again. It was okay and that’s it. Wanted to go to Miss Mary Bobo’s – but once again I didn’t make reservations in time.

IMG_7568 P.S. – No they do not give out tasting samples at the end of the tour. They do offer you a glass of lemonade.


  1. I think that the smell there would really bother me. You know my nose!

  2. Did it smell worse than a brewery? Those hops are potent!


Thanks for visiting today. I look forward to reading your comments. Have a beautiful day.
