Created in 1987 as a tribute to Mr Jack Daniel himself, Gentleman Jack is known as “the smoother side of Jack”. Gentleman Jack is charcoal mellowed not once, but twice for ultimate smoothness. Their hand-crafted barrels are matured exclusively on the bottom 2 floors of the warehouses where the climate is less intense for softer, lighter flavour.
At the distillery, there are over 2.2 million (200L) barrels of whiskey maturing at any given point.
If you were to lay these barrels down end-on-end, they would continue for over 3,300 kilometres!
Did You Know
Jasper “Jack” Daniel was indeed a real man and was taught how to make whiskey by a Lutheran Minister called Dan Call. Jack registered the distillery at the age of just 16.
He stood only 5 foot 2 when full-grown but became a giant in the whiskey industry. He died in 1911 after complications from kicking his safe in frustration.
