About Jack Daniel's Holiday Barrel Select Limited Edition Tennessee Whiskey
Jack Daniel's Holiday Select Tennessee Whiskey pays homage to Jack Daniels through the creation of rich new tradition in his hometown of Lynchburg, TN . Each year, the Jack Daniel's Distillery now erects a Barrel Tree — 140 barrels stacked 8 metres tall and hand-built by workers in Lynchburg — in the center of Lynchburg's town square. Once a year, whiskey from those barrels is then bottled straight from the Barrel Tree in a celebration of Jack Daniel's spirit, making each annual release truly one-of-a-kind.
The whiskey is made from a mash of corn, rye and malted barley. Once the ingredients have been mashed, they are fermented with a proprietary strain of yeast and iron-free cave spring water. Following fermentation, the wash is distilled and the resulting whiskey is then filtered through 10 feet of charcoal. This filtering process, known as the Lincoln County Process, earns the whiskey the title of "Tennessee Whiskey" and imparts a signature, sweet yet smoky flavor profile.
As a result of maturing in the Barrel Tree, Jack Daniel's Holiday Barrel Select Limited Edition Tennessee Whiskey releases an aroma of rich apple and blackberry tones countered with sweet, heavy oak notes. Apple and oak follow through in the taste, while stronger undercurrents of cinnamon and nutmeg linger warmly on the finish.

About Jack Daniel's
Born on September 5, 1850, Jasper Newton “Jack” Daniel was the youngest of ten children. His parents were of Scottish and Irish descent. In 1864, Jack learned the art of whiskey-making from a preacher and an enslaved man named Nathan “Nearest” Green, who eventually became Jack Daniel Distillery’s head distiller. Daniel’s distillery —founded in Lynchburg, Tennessee, in 1866— was the first registered distillery in the country (at the time, distilleries were required to register with the federal government, and the Jack Daniel Distillery was given Registered Distillery Number 1). Today, Jack Daniel Distillery is one of the most distinguished and recognizable names in the spirits industry.
About American Whiskey
There are two main representatives of the American whiskey family, bourbon, and rye, but some other spirits don't fall into those two strictly regulated categories.
There's equally strictly regulated American single malt, made from 100% malted barley, Tennessee whiskey, essentially bourbon filtered through maple charcoal and aged in new charred oak barrels.
And then there's moonshine, a high proof (150- 170 proof) distilled spirit mainly made out of corn which gained popularity during the prohibition.
