THINGS TO SEE

We’ll also include details about some fun things to do in Lynchburg!

Barrelhouse 1 – 14

If you choose either the Flight of Jack or Angel’s Share distillery tours, you’ll have the opportunity to see this historic barrelhouse.

View this post on Instagram A post shared by @outingsandaboutings

Although you won’t drink anything here, it is a great chance to see where some of the best whiskey in the world comes from.

One of the more strange aspects of the history behind this company is that Jack Daniel himself was killed by a large safe – and no, it didn’t fall on his head.

So how exactly did a safe kill the man who created such an incredible whiskey? Well, you’ll have to take the tour to find out!

Natural Spring

One of the reasons that Jack Daniel’s produces such high-quality whiskey is that they have a natural spring on the property which provides the water for their drinks.

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Shannon and Joe (@wolvesontherun_)

While on the tour, you’ll have an opportunity to see this spring for yourself!

Aging Warehouse

While you might not have an opportunity to visit this site, you will at least pass by the warehouse where all of Jack Daniel’s whiskey is aged.

As you walk past the structure, you won’t be able to ignore the strong smell of delicious whiskey wafting through the air.

Heated Charcoal

As your tour guide explains the process by which Jack Daniel’s whiskey is made, you will have an opportunity to see the heated charcoal they use.

This charcoal is mellowed to produce the best flavor for the whiskey.

Bottling Plant

In addition to all the other sites included on this tour, you will also have the chance to see how Jack Daniel’s whiskey is bottled at the end of its journey.

If you feel like grabbing a bottle for yourself, you can purchase one in the gift shop!

Miss Mary Bobo’s Boarding House

This is probably the most well-known restaurant in the area, and you can enjoy a meal here during the Taste of Lynchburg tour.

View this post on Instagram A post shared by L.A. Walker (@anglophile7)

There is also a day trip which includes lunch at this location.

Miss Mary Bobo’s restaurant has some of the best food in Tennessee, and the service you’ll receive here is quite possibly the definition of Southern hospitality.

10 Fun Facts From The Jack Daniels Distillery Tour (+ A Guide To Lynchburg Tennessee Attractions)

Sharing is caring!

Jack Daniels and coke is as American a highball cocktail as you can get – mixing two great American drink traditions. Despite my British husband trying to convert me to gin and tonics, I am still a big fan of Jack and Coke.  So I was super excited to visit the world-famous Jack Daniels in Lynchburg TN to take a Jack Daniels Distillery tour which explains how Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey is made. Then I got to check out the Lynchburg Tennessee attractions in downtown Lynchburg for its restaurants and stores. There are some great Southern barbecue places and the Lynchburg General Store is the place to stock up on Jack Daniels merchandise.

Jack Daniels Distillery Tours

The Jack Daniels Distillery Tours are super popular. Three hundred thousand people visit Jack Daniels Lynchburg TN every year! The busiest times to tour Jack Daniels distillery tend to be summer weekends. 

Types of Jack Daniels Distillery Tours

There are four types of Jack Daniels distillery tours. Every Jack Daniels distillery tour starts out essentially the same but they end differently. 

  • The Dry County Distillery Tour does not have a whiskey tasting at the end and it is open to all ages.
  • The Flight of Jack Daniels Tour has a whiskey tasting of 5 Jack Daniels products.
  • I took the Jack Daniels Flight of Angels tour at the end of which is a selection of mid-range whiskeys to taste. At the end of the Jack Daniels Distillery tours, I got souvenir Jack Daniels glasses which were pretty cool!
  • The Taste of Lynchburg Tour includes the tour, the whiskey tastings and lunch at Miss Bobo’s.

The whiskey options the Flight of Angels Jack Daniels Distillery Tour

The whiskey options the Flight of Angels Jack Daniels Distillery Tour

Each of the Jack Daniels Distillery tour and the Flight of Jack Daniels Tour lasts an hour and a half. The whiskey-free tour is marginally shorter and the Taste of Lynchburg takes 3 hours. 

Tennessee Whiskey vs. Bourbon

The Jack Daniels Distillery Tour shows you how charcoal mellowing to filter whiskey is a special step for Tennessee Whiskey (versus bourbon – that OTHER Southern whiskey).

charcoal for whiskey distilling

Jack Daniels charcoal is made with maple sugar

Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey uses the so-called Lincoln County method of charcoal mellowing where the whiskey is slowly dripped through 10 feet of charcoal (and another 3 feet of charcoal if its double mellowed like Jack Daniels Gentleman Jack). It can take a few days for the whiskey to be charcoal mellowed.

After the filtration process, the whiskey comes out clear. The distinctive color of Jack Daniels comes from the white oak barrels where the whiskey is kept. 

Tennessee Whiskey changes color as it ages

You can see how Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey changes color in the Jack Daniels Barrels.

Jack Daniels in Lynchburg TN

Believe it or not, Moore County (where the Jack Daniel’s Distillery Lynchburg Tennessee is located) has been a dry country since 1909. In 1995, an exception was made for the Jack Daniels Tour and for its employees. 

The distillery only uses the Jack Daniels barrels once. Then, they are resold to other manufacturers like hot sauce makers (as we found out on our Tabasco factory tour on Avery Island, Louisiana). 

The Lynchburg Tennessee Fire department

The Lynchburg Tennessee Fire department is a necessary part of the Jack Daniels operation with all that flammable alcohol and wood around.

There are about 2 million Jack Daniels barrels maturing at the Jack Daniels facilities at any time. Considering you get about 240 bottles of Jack Daniels per barrel, that’s a very good time!

Many generations of Lynchburg residents have worked at the distillery. For example, there has been a Green working at the distillery since the time of Earnest Green, the first Jack Daniels master distiller (although that wasn’t his title at the time).

Jack Daniels Alcohol Content

The Jack Daniels alcohol content is 125-140 proof when it comes out of the Jack Daniels barrels. You add water to get the alcohol levels down.

You can buy Jack Daniels Single barrel proof which is not watered down.  The Jack Daniels alcohol content for its single barrel whiskey usually comes in at 133 proof!

Jack Daniels Single Barrel is only sold in 10 states including Tennessee!

You can only buy these types of bottles of Jack Daniels in Tennessee.

Fun Facts From the Jack Daniels Distillery Tour

When you tour Jack Daniels Distillery you are immediately surrounded by a fair share of Jack Daniels Tennessee whiskey enthusiasts. Having been on other whiskey tours, such as the Bushmills Irish Whiskey factory, I did not expect it to be so much of a pilgrimage for some of the people. 

I’ve had my fair share of Jack Daniels and coke in my life, but some of the facts I learned from the Jack Daniels Distillery tour were fun to learn!

Jack Daniels No 7 was the first Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey

  • On the first Friday of every month, every employee at Jack Daniels gets a free Jack Daniels bottle of whiskey!
  • All Jack Daniels Tennessee whiskey sold anywhere in the world is made at Jack Daniels in Tennessee!
  • The Frank Sinatra Jack Daniels love affair was well known.  In fact, Frank Sinatra loved his Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey so much he was buried with a bottle of No. 7!

Mr. Jack the Legend

  • Jack Daniels the man was a bit of a prodigy.  He left home at the age of 6 to make his own way in the world and bought his whiskey distillery around the age of 13! At the age of 16, he registers  Jack Daniels as the first registered distillery in the USA.
  • Mr. Jack was taught the mysteries of whiskey distilling by an enslaved man, Nearest Green. He would have been the first master distiller of the company. 
  • Mr. Jack was quite the dapper dresser – possibly to mask the fact that he was only 5’2’’ tall!
  • Mr. Jack never married but he had many female friends. 
  • Mr. Jack died from a series of complications that arose from when he kicked his safe in frustration which lead to a grangrenous toe and an amputated leg.

Lynchburg Tennessee Things To Do

If you want to stretch your legs and walk off some of that whiskey, there are a handful of Lynchburg Tennessee things to do that you may find entertaining. There’s a little gem of a jail museum, great places to eat lunch and plenty of opportunities for souvenir shopping.

Downtown Lynchburg

Downtown Lynchburg is a charming small town just a short walk from the Jack Daniels Distillery and totally worth a visit.

Moore County Jail Museum

The Moore County Jail Museum is a small jail converted into a museum in downtown Lynchburg.  This jail was operationally as recently as 1990!

For the admission donation of a mere $1, you can see how small town justice worked in the old days. The museum operator was actually a former deputy sheriff who was a wealth of information.

When asked what sort of trouble you could have in this small town, the deputy sheriff had lots of stories. For a small town, there was a lot of trouble (including murders) because people would get drunk on hootch and go crazy. 

The building is small and the families of the sheriff lived in the front of the building. The sheriff’s wife was the chef and made meals for everyone. 

The beds in the Moore County Jail may have been uncomfortable but at least the meals were home-cooked!

Lynchburg Tennessee Attractions

The main Lynchburg Tennessee Attractions seem to revolve around shopping.  

Among the Lynchburg Tennessee attractions is an old-fashioned candy store

  • Velma’s candy store is a charming old-fashioned candy store
  • The Moonpie General Store is a good introduction to moon pies and other Southern food specialties.
  • There are several general, gift and antique stores which could easily serve as a black hole for browsers.

Downtown Lynchburg is as good an introduction to Southern culture as any. In the back streets of Lynchburg I saw the Confederate flag flying proudly.

Lynchburg Tennessee Restaurants

The Barrelhouse BBQ is a charming local downtown Lynchburg restaurant recommended to me. You ate on barrels and the food was great. I had a grilled cheese sandwich with a difference – pulled pork and Monterey jack – and it was delicious!

If you want something fancier, then try Miss Mary Bobo’s which has been around so long that even Mr. Jack used to frequent the establishment. You need to make reservations to eat here. 

Jack Daniels Merchandise

For Jack Daniels merchandise visit the Lynchburg Hardware General store. With everything Jack Daniels branded from clothes to Christmas ornaments, it’s hard to leave this store without treating yourself to at least one piece of  Jack Daniels merchandise.

Jack Daniel’s Distillery Tour in Tennessee: What To Know Before You Go

Jack Daniel’s Distillery Tour in Tennessee: What To Know Before You Go

  • Pinterest 183

Planning to go on the Jack Daniel’s Distillery tour in Lynchburg, Tennessee? Here’s how to make sure your trip goes off without a hitch. 

If you’re a fan of fine spirits and a nice, smooth whiskey then you’re not going to want to leave Tennessee without checking out the Jack Daniels Distillery first. 

I was in Huntsville, Alabama and came across state lines to explore this place firsthand and I gotta say, I was impressed with the dedication the team shows to the Jack Daniels brand and distilling process. 

Read on for everything you need to know before heading out to the Jack Daniel’s Distillery Tour. 

How to Get to the Jack Daniels Distillery  

Whiskey bottles on a barrel

The Jack Daniels Distillery is located in Lynchburg, Tennessee, about an hour and a half from Nashville, 3 and a half from Atlanta and 4 hours from Memphis.

The easiest way to get to the distillery if you’re not a local is to fly into Nashville and drive from there. You can make this into an easy day trip from the city.  

There’s free parking on site, although you will have to walk a bit to reach the entrance. 

You can also opt to go with a guided tour if you’re not fond of driving or want to relax without worrying about transportation. 

Note that the speeding zones change street to street once you start to get close and there are many speed traps set up. Use the Waze app to stay in the know. 

Tour Costs & Hours 

Founders of the Jack Daniels business

There are several tours available on the property, held daily from 9am to 4:30pm except for Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Year’s Day and Easter. 

The most basic tour option is the  Dry County Tour . It costs $15, lasts 1 hour 10 minutes and will take you through the process of making whiskey, as well as the history behind the Jack Daniels brand. 

The next level up at $25 and 1 hour 25 minutes is the Flight of Jack Daniels Tour , which includes the history tour plus a small tasting. 

After that it’s The Angel’s Share which costs $30 and lasts 1 hour and 30 minutes. After the historic tour you hear to the tasting room and sample individual whiskeys straight from the barrels.

Finally, for $125 you can do the Taste of Lynchburg , which lasts 3 hours and includes the tour, Angel’s Share tasting of Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel, Barrel Proof, Single Barrel Rye, Sinatra Select and Gold 27, a commemorative gift and a sit-down meal at Miss Mary Bobo’s.

There’s a small museum with a few exhibits set up right when you walk in that you can view for free if you’re just passing through. 

Miss Bobo’s Boarding House Restaurant

Fried chicken on a plate

The on-site restaurant, Miss Mary Bobo’s , is an attraction in and of itself, serving more than 900 patrons a day with southern style, family dining across 9 different dining rooms.

They also have an outdoor patio area for larger parties. Reservations are required and are available at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.

The menu includes souther classics like fried okra, cornbread and bakes whiskey apples.  

The restaurant also doubles as a boarding house in case you want to stay on the premises and have a full immersion experience.

You can dine here without going on a whiskey tour — it’s a flat rate of $25 for adults and $9 for children. 

Cave Spring Hollow

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

The life source of the processing center is Cave Spring Hollow , drawing 800 gallons of water from underneath the ground to earth’s surface every single minute. 

The aquifers surrounding walls are limestone, making the water mineral rich and pure. Limestone also naturally removes iron from the water, saving the distillery a step in the process. 

Every bottle of Jack Daniel’s whiskey sold throughout the world is made with water from this source. 

The Whiskey Making Process  

Jack Daniels Distillery Tour

Whiskey is made using a few key ingredients — corn, barley and rye . To that you add yeast, allow for fermentation then place it in a barrel to get its flavor and taste.

Jack Daniels is the only major distillery that makes their own barrels using logs of oak. They take about 6 months to a year each to air dry and the company produces roughly 2,000 barrels/day. 

They also pride themselves on the quality of their ingredients and use only the best grain corn.

Since opening in1866 the distillery has only ever been c losed twice — once during prohibition and again during WWII when rationing on corn prevented the purchase of grade “A” ingredients.   

Tradition is everything here and at the realms are Master Distiller Jeff Arnett and Assistant Master Distiller Chris Fletcher.

The history tour takes you through the entire process, from the gathering of the ingredients to labeling of the bottles. 

Whiskey Tasting  

Jack Daniels tasting glasses

During the whiskey tasting you get to sample 5 different products, each the equivalent of two sips in a whiskey tumbler. 

During my visit I tasted Old No. 7, No. 27 Gold, Gentleman Jack, Tennessee Honey and Tennessee Fire, which had a cinnamon taste to it. 

We learned how to tell the difference between a fine whiskey and a more common bottle and appreciate the notes of different scents and flavors like molasses and citrus. 

We were fortunate enough to have the Assistant Master Distiller leading our tasting session so I found it to be very informative. His pride in the produce really came across and his enthusiasm was contagious. 

Know Before you Go

Jack Daniels tour

Big disclaimer here folks: Lynchburg, Tennessee is a dry county . This means you cannot drink here. You cannot buy it at restaurants and actually need to go to another county to find alcohol. 

This mans that if you’re thinking you’re going to visit a distillery and have a boozy day, think again! It’s important to temper expectations here — you will be sober and depending on the package you choose, well fed. 

There is a gift shop on site and you can buy bottles to take with you as a souvenir but they’re large, like $50-$100 each. There are no small bottles in case you were hoping to sneak a tiny one into your coke. Trust me, I looked.

Official Gift Shop 

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

Want to buy an empty barrel or other unique memorabilia? Then head to the Lynchburg Hardware and General Store , the official Jack Daniels’ gift and barrel shop, the address is as follows: 52 Mechanic St, Lynchburg, TN 37352.

It is located on the town square of Lynchburg, within walking distance of the visitor center, and open 9am-6pm Monday to Saturday and 1pm-6pm on Sundays.

Visiting Jack Daniel’s Distillery: A Tiny Town’s Big Legacy

Whiskey barrels in storage at Jack Daniels distillery in Lynchburg Tennessee

A one-stoplight town in southern Tennessee is home to the top-selling American whiskey in the world. In fact, every shot of Jack Daniel’s whiskey sold around the globe is made in the tiny dry town of Lynchburg. This wide spot in the road attracts over 300,000 visitors a year to see how Tennessee whiskey is made at the Jack Daniel’s distillery on the edge of town.

Less than two hours from Nashville , the distillery is a place to see how craftsmanship and attention to detail have built a brand and drinks that people swear by. A Jack Daniels distillery tour is also a walk through the 150-year history of Jack Daniel—the man himself and his namesake products. It’s a look at the impact of Prohibition, the rise of a family business, and making it “the best we can” every day, as a sign in Jack’s old office proclaims. And you don’t even have to be a whiskey fan to have a good time.

Jack Daniel’s History

What is tennessee whiskey, jack daniel’s distillery tour, whiskey tasting, visiting the distillery, tour options, accommodations.

Jack Daniel was a force of nature. At only 5 feet 2 inches tall, he had to be a bit fiery and a lot gregarious to get things done. He was known for his love of music and parties, which always attracted a lot of attention in sleepy little Lynchburg. Although Jack never married, he was rarely without a lady or two on his arm.

Nothing shows Jack’s spitfire personality more than the story of his death. One morning, he was frustrated when he forgot the combination to his safe. Losing his temper, he kicked the safe so hard that he broke his toe. Over time, his foot didn’t heal correctly and the resulting infection killed him.

Office with desk, heater, and photographs

The end to Jack Daniel’s life was just as dramatic as his early years. One of 13 children, Jasper Newton “Jack” Daniel ran away from home at the age of 7. He became acquainted with a local storekeeper and minister, Reverend Dan Call. Jack apprenticed to Rev. Call and took up a trade not terribly common for seven-year-old boys—whiskey making.

Jack learned the ropes from one of the enslaved men working for Rev. Call, Nearest Green, and the whiskey increased in popularity. At the same time, pressure mounted from Rev. Call’s congregation, suggesting that whiskey making might not be the best for a man of the cloth. Call chose religion over distilling and sold the business to Jack for only $25 when he was 20 year old.

Jack Daniel's No. 7 Whiskey sign

The Green family continued to help Jack in his new venture, and descendants still work for the distillery now over 130 years later. (Rev. Call’s descendants now run the Call Family Distillery —which we’ve visited in North Carolina—drawing on their 150-year whiskey heritage.)

So what did Jack make at his $25 company in Lynchburg, Tennessee? Tennessee whiskey, of course. Though there are common standards, different types of whiskey are made and aged differently around the U.S. and the world.

Exhibit showing the charcoal filtration process for Tennessee whiskey

We’ve seen it done in five-gallon barrels at a renowned distillery under a bridge in Texas, and at a 230-year-old distillery on the coast of Northern Ireland. Everyone has their own spin.

Jack Daniel’s whiskey is made from corn, malted barley, and rye and is distilled in copper stills. The resulting white whiskey is then drip filtered through 10-foot stacks of sugar maple charcoal, which is produced on-site. It is this step that sets Tennessee whiskey apart from any other type.

Although it sounds like the charcoal would impart a flavor into the product, curiously, it doesn’t. After the filtering, the whiskey is stored in newly handcrafted toasted oak barrels, which give it color and most of its flavor.

Exterior of a barrel house

The whiskey ages for 4 to 7 years. In a place like Tennessee, the weather plays a large part in the aging. If it’s warm, the whiskey will take on more flavor from the barrel faster because of how barrels breathe. If it’s unusually cool, things may take a bit longer. That’s why master tasters are also an important part of the process, making sure that the taste and color are right through every step.

The Jack Daniels tour was one of the most information-packed tours we’ve been on in a long time. And every bit of it was entertaining. From the tales of Jack himself to seeing the distillation process firsthand, we were engrossed in all of it. The traditional distillery tour took a little more than an hour, and there was a lot to see.

Maple wood stacks ready to burn in the rickyard under a furnace

The distillery tour began with a ride to one of the 87 warehouses where we got a glimpse into how much whiskey is really on this property. From there, it was all on foot. We wound our way downhill to the rickyard, an area that plays a key role in the whiskey-making process.

Here, they burn enormous towers of whiskey-sprayed sugar maple wood until it becomes charcoal. This is the charcoal that is ultimately ground down for use in the filtration process—the thing that separates Jack Daniel’s Tennessee whiskey from other whiskeys and bourbons.

Statue of Jack Daniel in front of a cave spring

The next stop was the cave spring. The natural spring that flows through a limestone cave was one of the main reasons Jack built his distillery here. Thanks to the limestone, the water is filtered of all iron, making it a perfect component of the whiskey fermentation process. Without the spring, Jack Daniel’s wouldn’t be what it is.

After a look at Jack’s office and the aforementioned offending safe, we were off to see the heart of the operation in the still house. The first step that is handled in the still house is fermentation, which has the strong odor of baking bread. We’ve seen fermentation in distilleries in Nashville and beyond, but it’s nothing like what happens here.

Over 100,000 gallons of mash are fermenting at any given point, producing what I can only describe as a wall of carbon dioxide. As we approached one of the tanks to see the cool bubbling reaction happening inside, the strength of the gas almost knocked us over.

Large fermentation tank

From there, we got a glimpse at the filtration process. The white whiskey is pumped into the charcoal at the rate of a gallon per minute. As the whiskey drops through the 10-foot tank, any remaining impurities are removed. When the master tasters decide that it’s ready, the whiskey is bound for the barrels.

Jack Daniel's Single Barrel whiskey bottle and samples

The distillery makes five core products—Old No. 7 (black label), Gentleman Jack, Single Barrel, Tennessee Honey, and Tennessee Fire. And since we were on the tasting tour, we got to try them all. Interestingly, all the products are made from the same base recipe in the same way. It’s only after aging that they are filtered further (as with Gentleman Jack) or have flavoring added (as with the Honey and Fire liqueurs).

Whiskey bottling line

The tasting room is where we got to learn the right way to taste whiskey. Taking a small first sip gets you over that initial shock to the palate. Then gently sipping and swirling the whiskey around your mouth really brings out the different flavors. And what different flavors they were.

We had both tried the Old No. 7 and Gentleman Jack in the past, but the other three products were totally new to us. And even though we’re not exactly whiskey aficionados, we loved the praline notes of the Tennessee Honey and the smoothness of the high-end Single Barrel (an actual single barrel, which makes 240 bottles, can be bought here for a mere $10,000). I was also a big fan of the Tennessee Fire, which is kind of like the tastes of fall in a glass.

Jack Daniels visitor center

Jack Daniel’s distillery is in Lynchburg, which is located about 1.5 hours southeast of Nashville.

There are four options for Jack Daniels distillery tour. The Dry County Tour takes just over an hour, and the Flight of Jack Daniels Tour (the one we did) and The Angel’s Share tour both take about 1.5 hours. The 3-hour Taste of Lynchburg tour includes a meal at the famous Miss Mary Bobo’s restaurant and a tour and whiskey tasting. Most of the distillery tours require walking, and much of the time is spent outdoors, so dress appropriately.

Tours are conducted daily from 9:00am to 4:30pm and are done on a first-come-first-served basis, or you can book in advance on their website (recommended).

Tour prices range from $20 to $100. Jack Daniels distillery tour costs are: Dry County Tour – $20, Flight of Jack Daniels Tour – $30, The Angel’s Share – $35, and Taste of Lynchburg – $100.

The White Rabbit Bottle Shop sells all the different Jack Daniel’s alcohol products. You can even get a bottle personalized on-site. The larger gift store in downtown Lynchburg sells pretty much every kind of memorabilia you could imagine.

One of the appeals of Jack Daniel’s is its remote location. If you are visiting, it is possible to do as a day trip, and it’s a great addition to a weekend trip to Nashville . However, there are several hotel options in Lynchburg and nearby if you want to stay close.

We took the Flight of Jack tour, and enjoyed it very much! Very informative and fun. We had a great tour guide, Bob, who made it a lot of fun. I highly recommend taking the tour, and definitely visit the town square in Lynchburg.

Since when did they start charging for a tour? It was always a free tour in 2001 and in 2002.

Jack Daniels Distillery Tour in Lynchburg, Tennessee

With over 100 years of history that spans prohibition, Jack Daniels is a true American company that still has all of its production out of the same town it was created in. The distillery sits about an hour and a half south of Nashville, and if you are visiting the city, it is a great half-day trip that is well worth the effort. I took the hour and a half tour that ended with a whiskey tasting, and here is all the information.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

  • Tours range from $15 – $25
  • The tour with tasting was $22 when I went
  • Takes an hour and a half to drive there from Nashville
  • Location: 133 Lynchburg Hwy, Lynchburg, TN 37352

Getting There

From Nashville, the drive is relatively straightforward on a couple of highways most of the way there. You can put in the above address, and it will take you to the distillery which is in the small town of Lynchburg that pretty much only exists because of Jack Daniels.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

We arrived 30 minutes before the tour as requested, and took the time to explore the interior of the main building while we waited.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

This area was great as it had a lot of antiques from the companies history as well as an easy to follow walkthrough of the many of the main components. You will learn all of this on the tour, but it is nice to read here as well.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

You can also see a collection of the different bottles and what they looked like during the company’s history in another room.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

Lastly, there is a bottle shop where you can buy some bottles that are exclusive to the distillery and that can’t be bought elsewhere. This is a fun addition, and if you are a whiskey fan, they have some great stuff here.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

Our tour started with a shuttle ride that took us to the top of the property.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

We were lucky enough to be there when they were making charcoal. Our guide told us that this is very rare and it was impressive to see the massive billows of fire under the old machinery.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

From here the tour headed past some old firetrucks that have been on the property for decades.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

One of the best parts of the tour was the next stop, which was the cave spring and statue of Mr. Jack himself.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

This cave has a spring that flows out of it, and it has been the water base for the whiskey since its inception. Even when there was a drought about ten years ago, the spring never ran dry.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

Next stop was the old company headquarters which had a lot of the original pieces inside, including the safe that Mr. Jack kicked and which lead to the infection that killed him.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

There is also a national register sign here as well as a collection of ingredients that they use for making the whiskey.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

From here we headed into the manufacturing area, and this was where we were not allowed to take photos. This area was impressive though, and it allowed you to see the whiskey during different steps of the process. We also went into a room where they slowly drip the whiskey into charcoal, and it takes about five days for it to filter through to the bottom of the barrel.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

Next, we got a chance to see the bottling process, which is where they add the stickers to the bottles.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

This was also the same area where they have walls showcasing all of the people that buy entire single barrels from the distillery. This is a popular thing to do, but only for the more affluent as it costs $9,000 to $15,000 to buy one.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

Leaving this room ended the main part of the tour, and we headed next into the tasting area.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

The tasting area is one of the most impressive I have ever seen. It had a large glass room with tables that the whiskey platters sat on.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

There were five tastings, and they were from some pretty expensive bottles which made it a lot of fun. Our guide lead us through how to taste whiskey and talked to us about the idiosyncrasies as well.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

Our time on the tour ended here, but you could still go back in and shop or explore the main building area.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

I would recommend that you head into the little downtown from here as well which is about a 5-minute walk. They have a few BBQ restaurants here, a chocolate shop and a few stores.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

This is also where the main Jack Daniels giftshop is if you are looking to purchase anything other then exclusive whiskeys. I liked the barrel area in the gift shop, where they had barrels for purchase and a bunch of different artistic barrel art pieces you could buy.

lynchburg tn jack daniels tour

After about 3 hours, we headed back to the car and made our way back to Nashville.   I can easily say it was one of the highlights of our time in the state and if you are spending some time here, I highly recommend it. Make sure to let me know what you think in the comments.

A Whiskey Pilgrimage: Visiting The Historic Jack Daniel’s Distillery In Lynchburg, TN

jack daniels distillery,jack daniels tour,jack daniel's distillery,jack daniel's tour,miss mary bobo's

Lynchburg is a study in contrasts, a tiny town with a larger-than-life legacy.  It’s here, in this one-stoplight town with only about 6,000 residents, that the biggest and most recognizable whiskey in the world is made.   And it’s a must-visit for any whiskey lover.  So today we’re headed down to rural Tennessee to tour the iconic Jack Daniel’s Distillery!

A Guide to Visiting the Jack Daniel's Distillery | How to plan your visit to Lynchburg, TN. This tiny Tennessee town is home to the biggest whiskey in the world, all made right here. How to take a Jack Daniel's tour, what to do in Lynchburg, eating at Miss Mary Bobo's, and some less-known things to do.

Full disclosure, I work for Brown-Forman, who owns Jack Daniel’s, which is why I’ve had the opportunity to visit and do some cool stuff.  However, there’s no relationship between the distillery and this blog, and they don’t endorse me or the blog in any way.  All opinions are, as always, completely my own!

Jack Daniel’s was officially founded in 1866, when a 16-(ish)-year-old Mr. Jack registered his distillery with the government.  He was the first to do so, which makes Jack Daniel’s the oldest registered distillery in the country.

Jack is such a huge brand that some people assume the distillery is just a showplace, and there’s a massive factory somewhere else…but the opposite is true.  And more than 300,000 people a year make the trek out to this tiny town in the middle of nowhere to see where every drop of Jack Daniel’s comes from.

What’s even crazier is that Moore County (where the distillery and Lynchburg are located) has been a dry country since 1909, when the state went into its own Prohibition.  While they got an exception in 1995 to taste a small amount on the tour, to sell at the bottle shop, and to gift to employees, you can’t buy alcohol anywhere else in the county to this day.

Who was Jack Daniel?

Yes, Jack was a real dude!  Jasper Newton Daniel was born somewhere around 1850 (give or take a year or two…record-keeping wasn’t the best).  As a child he left home and was taken in by the Reverend Dan Call.  Here, with the Call family, he learned to make whiskey from an enslaved man named Nearest Green.

He bought the whiskey distillery from Reverend Call around age 13, and registered it a few years later (the first in the nation to do so).  He brought Nearest (now free) with him as effectively the company’s first master distiller, though that title didn’t really exist until much more recently.

When Jack moved the operation to the Cave Hollow (where it is today) in the 1880s, Nearest didn’t want to move, but his sons George and Eli went with Jack.  To this day, the distillery’s workforce has multiple generations of various families working there, and has had a Green family member working at the distillery since the time of Nearest (you can learn more about it here if you’re interested).

Jack was quite a fascinating person himself…only 5’2″ tall and a dapper dresser, he had many female “friends” but never married (the distillery was passed on to his nephew, Lem Motlow).  I’ve been reading “Blood and Whiskey: The Life and Times of Jack Daniel” and if you really want to know more about him, I highly suggest it!

How to plan your visit to Jack Daniel’s & Lynchburg

Here are a few tips to make the most of your visit.  It can definitely be done in a day trip from a city, but if you want a little more time to explore, you can spend a night in the area as well.

  • Lynchburg really is in the boonies, but it’s still easily reachable from Nashville, Huntsville, and Chattanooga (60-90 minute drive from all three)
  • Reservations are encouraged, though not required…however openings are first-come if you don’t have a reservation so during peak times you might have to wait a while.  My take is, if you’re going all the way out to Lynchburg, wouldn’t be annoying not to be able to get on a tour??
  • There is a parking lot you can use for free that’s a short walk to the Visitor Center (I think if you’re approaching the distillery on the left, the parking would be your next right).  Some people take a guided tour from one of the nearby cities, to make things easier.
  • Tours/experiences are partly outdoors and may involve walking and stairs. Decent walking shoes are recommended, and I’d encourage sunscreen and a water bottle.
  • In addition to taking a tour, I’ve shared some of the other things you could do below, including exploring downtown Lynchburg, stuffing yourself silly at Miss Mary Bobo’s, visiting Jack’s gravesite, and more!
  • In Lynchburg proper, the pickin’s are slim.  You’ve got the Country Inn (a renovated motel) and the Tolley House (a B&B).  You can check out this list of (mostly) B&Bs in Lynchburg as well, I’m not certain how up-to-date it is
  • One other great idea is to pair a visit to Jack with a weekend exploring Nashville’s awesome energy, music, and food (and here’s a quirky spot to consider staying! )

First, we tour!  You’ll arrive at the Visitor Center to check in for your tour.  While you wait, there are tons of historical artifacts, exhibits, stories, and more around the room to soak up.

There are four different tour options (you can see them here ).  There are a lot of similarities, though one of the tours does not include a whiskey tasting at the end.  I took the Angel’s Share tour, which takes a total of 90 minutes and has five higher-end whiskeys you taste at the end.

This old time-y car is where you’ll meet your tour group at the appropriate time.  I was met by Brandi, and we headed out to the waiting minibus (after a photo op for anyone who was interested).

The tour starts with a short bus ride up to the top of the hill, then the remainder of the tour is walking (note, you’ll need to be physically able to walk short distances and navigate stairs, or else call the distillery to ask about accessible options).

The tour doesn’t fully go “in order” of the exact whiskey making steps (simply due to logistics of getting groups through and where very old buildings were originally placed).  But you do start kind of at the beginning, with charcoal creation at the rickyard.  This is probably my favorite thing to see, if you’re luck enough to catch the timing right.

Charcoal mellowing was a key part of Jack’s process back in the 1860s, and has stayed an integral part of the process to this day.   The so-called “Lincoln County method” means that every drop of Jack is very slowly dripped through 10 feet of sugar maple charcoal before going into the barrel.  This is what makes it a Tennessee Whiskey (as opposed to a bourbon, which it does meet the requirements for).

Contrary to popular belief, the charcoal mellowing doesn’t ADD anything to the whiskey…it removes, to smooth and soften it a bit (particularly some of the more harsh or oily notes you sometimes get in bourbons).  Locals call it the “extra blessing”.

Where do you get the charcoal??  Well, you make it, of course!  The tour will stop here and explain the process of seasoning the sugar maple and then burning it down to charcoal (which is much more exacting to do than you’d imagine).

If you’re REALLY lucky, you’ll get to see Darren and Tracy actually spray the towers of sugar maple with clear high-proof whiskey and burn them (they do it usually 3 to 4 times a week, typically in the morning).

Next you’ll wander down to the Cave Spring Hollow, one of my favorite spots on the tour and the reason that Jack put his distillery here.  Every drop of water that goes into Jack’s whiskey still comes from the cave spring on the distillery’s land.  It’s truly the lifeblood of the distillery—you can’t make whiskey without a LOT of water!

There’s a reason Kentucky and Tennessee are hotbeds of whiskey making, and that’s because we have an abundance of limestone-filtered water.  Why does that matter??  Well, first it helps impart minerals that give it the right character and helps it be as pure and clear as possible.

But more importantly, the limestone removes iron from the water, which is absolutely critical to whiskey making…iron will cause awful tastes in the end product (think sulfur…blech).  That’s why the 800-ish gallons of water per minute that the distillery gets from the spring are so amazing (and they have a lot of water conservation efforts to ensure it stays that way).

The next few stops on the tour include Jack’s office (the only original building that was still usable after Prohibition), then fermentation, and charcoal mellowing.  In those latter two they ask you not to take photos for safety reasons, so make sure to pay attention to signage.  Also, there’s a place to fill up a water bottle in fermentation area.

I particularly love fermentation…seeing how they grow the yeast (their own proprietary strain, which makes a massive difference in taste!), use the sour mash, and ferment the corn mash is so cool.  You can watch it bubble merrily away.

And the SMELL!  It’ll knock you back, that yeasty fermentation scent and C02 kickback packs a punch.  I love it though.

You are then able to see what the charcoal mellowing process looks like, with vats of charcoal packed 10 feet deep.  The clear 140-proof liquor very slowly drips down, letting gravity do its job.

After the filtration process, the whiskey is still clear, and then it’s ready for barreling.  The distinctive color of Jack Daniels comes from the brand-new charred, toasted oak barrels that will be the whiskey’s home for the next handful of years.

Barrels are so critical to the whiskey-making process, imparting about 50% of the taste and 100% of the color.  That’s why Jack makes all their own barrels, to be able to control that part of the process from start to finish.

And finally, it’s time to taste some whiskey!  I was on the Angel’s Share tour, which includes five more special, high-end (high-proof) whiskies that are harder to find.

Brandi led us through the Red Dog Saloon, Sinatra Select (the singer was famously buried with a bottle of Jack), Single Barrel Select (one of the easier to find globally), Single Barrel Rye, and the current Tennessee Tasters (which brings notes of Jamaican spice from the finishing barrel they used).

The tour guide will talk about the steps to taste whiskey well (e.g. smelling it first without sloshing it around, then giving it a swirl to sniff, then the first tiny taste to shock your palate, etc.).

After the tasting, your tour will wind up back at the Visitor Center at the White Rabbit Bottle Shop, basically the only place you can purchase Jack in (dry) Moore County.  White Rabbit was the name of one of the two saloons Jack ran in Lynchburg back in his time (Red Dog was the other).

Their bottle selection rotates constantly, but this can be a great place to pick up some of those less-common products, and the only place to get the Tennessee Tasters series.  One note, they can do bottle engraving here, which is a fun gift idea (or self-gift, to commemorate your visit)!

Now let’s talk about some of the other things you can do in Lynchburg to really round out your Jack Daniel’s tour experience.

Devour the best Southern cooking at Miss Mary Bobo’s

Run, don’t walk!  For me, Miss Mary Bobo’s is a must-do while you’re in Lynchburg.  It began in the early 1900s as a boarding house run by the lady herself, and has carried on the tradition of Southern hospitality and cooking ever since.

Historically they’ve done everything family-style here, and you’d sit down with other people, big dishes of food magically appearing, and often one of the hosts would sit down and share history, stories, and recollections.  COVID has kind of screwed that up and it’s more traditional ordering right now, but I know they’re hoping to get back to that soon.

Everything I’ve had here has been absolutely delicious, but a major shout-out to the fried okra—I think it’s the best I’ve ever had.  I dream about that okra!  I’d recommend a reservation, and you can see more at their website .

Lunch at Miss Mary Bobo's is a must when visiting Lynchburg!

Wander downtown Lynchburg

Historic downtown Lynchburg is just a 5-minute walk from the distillery, and worth a spin while you’re visiting.  It’s very shopping-focused, particularly old fashioned candy and sweets, Moon Pies, antiques, and LOTS of Jack Daniel’s merchandise (including items made of old barrels).

Make sure to visit the Lynchburg Hardware & General Store, which (contrary to the name) is the biggest, best place to find Jack merch.

Visit Jack’s gravesite

This one is a REAL deep-cut, and feels a bit odd to me personally.  But for the passionate Jack Daniel’s fan, why come all the way to Lynchburg and not stop by Jack’s grave to say hi??

He’s buried at the Lynchburg City Cemetery, which was really beautiful and peaceful on the brisk spring day we visited.  It’s fun spotting all the historic Jack Daniel’s-related names on the stones as you walk…Motlow, Tolley, Green, Daniels, and more.  And his gravestone isn’t hard to find, as it’s flanked by two pretty white iron chairs if you want to sit for a spell.

Most visitors to Lynchburg don't visit Jack's gravesite

Attend a special event on BBQ Hill

If you’re really lucky (and a good planner), you just might get to attend an event atop BBQ Hill.  This separate area of the distillery grounds offers amazing views over the Hollow, including the best sunsets around.

There are occasionally events for bartenders, Squires (basically Jack Daniel’s super fans), and us regular Joes, and it’s worth asking around or keeping an eye out for these…I mean, look at that view!

Only for special events, a sunset at BBQ Hill is a unique experience at Jack Daniel's

We have gone to Lynchburg every year since 2016. But only taken one tour of the distillery. This site is absolutely reminiscent for us. Good job. We were not allowed to take the time to photograph the way you have. It makes me want to go again and be with a much smaller group.

Hi Clint! This blog is not affiliated with the distillery, so I’d recommend reaching out to them directly or contacting (or visiting) the Squire House. Cheers!

Can I drink alcohol on the bus ride?

Yes! Let Tipsy Tours purchase it for you ahead of time, so it is one less thing you have to worry about! Keep in mind that we do not make any restroom stops on the way to Jack Daniel’s or Short Mountain. In addition, neither place will let you in if you are M.C. Hammered.

Is it okay to tip the tour guides?

Sure! If you like something they’ve done, why not?

Does everyone have to be 21 to hop on board?

Yessir-ee!! Since we will be tasting alcohol, we have to be 21.

How many folks will be on the bus?

Because we like to create an intimate, personal experience, we limit the maximum number of participants to 13.

Can I book a private tour?

We would love to accommodate you and your friends! Give us a decent heads up so we can plan accordingly.

What if I don't like whiskey? Should I still book a tour?

If you like to have a good time, see some history, and experience the beautiful rolling hills of Tennessee, then you should DEFINITELY book a tour. Plus, if someone accompanies you, they will be happy to have YOU pour your tasting share into THEIR glass!

What happens if it rains?

Since some of the tour at Jack Daniel’s & Short Mountain is outdoors, come prepared with either a poncho and/or an umbrella.

What is your refund policy?

Tickets are non-refundable. But, if something comes up you can always reschedule for another time with advance notice.

Is this a handicapped accessible tour?

Unfortunately, our vehicles are not handicapped- accessible, much like the distilleries.

I'm HUNGRY! What can I eat in Lynchburg?

After your tasting tour, you are free to peruse downtown Lynchburg, where you will have several food choices, including some D- LISH BBQ! 

Do I have to sing while I am on the bus?

If you’re not feeling like Whitney Houston today, you don’t have to sing. Singing is optional, but definitely encouraged!

What happens if I have a good time on the bus?

Are you kidding me?
