No one knows the exact date in September when he was born, so Jack Daniel’s friends and fans around the world celebrate the iconic man for the whole month.

Whether he was uncertain of the actual year or it was just a matter of pride, Jack died before revealing the truth about this mystery. 

Some say he was uncertain of the year himself, or that he was never able to find his birth certificate because it was lost in a courthouse fire.  Either way, Jack died before revealing his date of birth.

We know that Mr Jack constantly worked to perfect his whiskey, when he landed on something that was good, he stuck with it. 

“Every day we make it, we’ll make it the best way we can” is what he lived by and what we still live by today. Every drop of his Tennessee Whiskey is still made in Lynchburg, Tennessee. 

Jack took the extra time and money to charcoal mellow his whiskey, drop by drop to create his smooth sippin’ Tennessee whiskey. Today we call this the “extra blessing.”
