A limited edition release, the Jack Daniel’s Heritage Barrel Whiskey serves as the latest addition to the line. Made under the careful supervision of Master Distiller Jeff Arnett, the whiskey is distilled from a proprietary bourbon mash bill before being aged in new, meticulously toasted and charred American oak casks to impart a unique flavor profile not seen in previous Single Barrel series expressions.

Born on September 5, 1850, Jasper Newton "Jack"Daniel was the youngest of ten children. His parents were of Scottish and Irish descent, and in keeping with his rich cultural heritage, Daniel opened a distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee, in 1866. His eponymous distillery was the first registered distillery in the country (at the time, distilleries were required to register with the federal government, and Jack Daniel Distillery Distillery was given Registered Distillery Number 1). Today, Jack Daniel Distillery Distillery is one of the most distinguished and recognizable names in the spirits industry.
