A Little Jack

Obviously a float, this bottle is a replica of the actual Jack Daniel's Whiskey produced in Lynchburg, TN.   Jack Daniel's, a sour mash whiskey (NOT bourbon ) is filtered through sugar maple charcoal and aged in large wooden vats.

If you get to the Nashville area, be sure to check out the Jack Daniel's Distillery tour.  It's very interesting, especially when they lift the lid of one of the wooden vats.  I think your blood alcohol probably goes up just from the vapors.

FYI:  You won't be able to buy much JD's while on the tour.  Lynchburg is located in Moore County, a dry county in Tennessee.  Except for one commemorative product, the distillery is not permitted to sell the whiskey.

I thought Texas was the only backwards place that had dry areas.
