Description:
Gentleman Jack is the world's only double mellowed whiskey and the perfect gift for a gentleman with exceptional taste.

Crafted from Mr. Jack's own private recipe, Gentleman Jack was the first new whiskey from the Jack Daniel distillery in over 100 years. It is a distinctively smooth, rich whiskey, distilled and aged to perfection by the genuinely good-natured folks at America's oldest ditsillery.

But, at the end of the day, what makes Gentleman Jack so unique is actually quite simple: Gentleman Jack is charcoal mellowed twice, once before and once after it is aged in charred oak barrels. The result is an extremely smooth, satisfying taste that you'll surely appreciate.

Take a sip. Just one sip. Then you know why Gentleman Jack, Rare Tennessee Whiskey is so special.

Review: I have recently been trying out several Bourbons to try and find a nice one for to make myself a old fashioned cocktail with. Being a lover of Scottish whiskey I was pleasantly surprised by this drink. I have drunk JD many times but this is way better and is a bottle I hope to add to my collection soon.

Review: As someone who dislikes JD No7 intensely I was a little apprehensive about trying Gentlemen Jack but my reticence was unfounded, in my palates opinion not dissimilar to Woodford Reserve and as a fan of Irish Whiskey mellow enough to enjoy neat.

Review: Wish I could agree with other reviews - I found it little different from the JD7, cost more, and I wondered why? I like bourbon and Tennessee offerings with the best of them, and have tried more than a few on US visits. It doesn\'t offer the value of similarly priced whiskies, I would prefer Old Grandad or Four Roses, or even JD7 which remains a classic drink, neat or mixed.

Review: Gentleman's Jack has to be the smoothest drink I have ever tasted. Since drinking it, I will not go back drinking reg Jack Daniels.

Review: Being an ardent scotch drinker I asked in a Boston bar for the US equivalent - this was the recommendation of the guy just along the bar. On the strength of that first taste I bought a duty free bottle at JFK on the way home and have searched every supermarket and wine cellar shelf that I have visited in the UK since the litre bottle ran out: found some good wines and a few good whiskeys but never Gentelman Jack until now. Now I've found you I will be back.
If you like a smooth, flavoursome malt - my favourites are a good Islay or Clyneleish, Highland Park or Caol Ila - then you'll really appreciate the flavour of this. Not just charcoal and smoke but lots of other subtleties. You won't want to drink plain Jack Daniels again.

Producer Information

Jack Daniel, one of 13 children, was born in 1850. He was raised by a family friend before being hired out to work with the Dan Call family at the age of seven. Call, a Lutheran minister, also owned a whiskey still on the Louse River.
Over the next several years, Jack learned everything he could about whiskey making from Call. Then, in September of 1863, under increasing pressure to devote his life to lifting spirits rather than selling them, Call sold his still to Jack, who was just 13 at the time.
Jack Daniel, like Dan Call, believed in mellowing fresh whiskey through hard maple charcoal. While this process was widely used, the time and expense involved made it less popular with penny-pinching whiskey makers. But Mr. Jack thought it was essential, so he perfected his charcoal mellowing process back in 1866. To this day, this still gives Jack Daniel's its smooth character and unique taste. In anticipation of government taxes, Mr. Jack registered his distillery in 1866. He was the first to do so. Making it the nation's oldest registered distillery.
Though only 5'2" tall, Mr. Jack's stature as a distiller kept growing. To mark his 21st birthday, Jack went on a shopping spree in the city. He returned wearing a formal knee-length frock coat and a broad-brimmed planter's hat, which would become his daily uniform for the rest of his life. Those acquainted with the man claim, "Once he got something the way he liked it, he never changed it." It was a personality that would characterize his whiskey.
In 1904 Mr. Jack entered his Old No. 7 Tennessee sipping whiskey at the World's Fair held in St. Louis, Missouri. Of the 20 whiskeys from around the world, his was the only one awarded the World's Fair Gold Medal and honored as the world's best whiskey.
Around 1905, Mr. Jack arrived at work early one morning and tried to open the safe in his office. He couldn't remember the combination and so he kicked it in anger. The blow broke his toe and an infection set in. He eventually died from blood poisoning in 1911.
Because Jack Daniel never married or had children, he deeded his distillery to his hard-working nephew, Lem Motlow, who oversaw the distillery through Prohibition.
How old is Mr. Jack?
A town fire that destroyed courthouse records and conflicting headstone dates on Mr. Jack's and his mother's graves have left Mr. Jack's exact date of birth in question. All that's certain is the month of September. But, for an American icon like Mr. Jack, one day isn't enough time to celebrate his life, anyway.
If you didn't already know, Jasper Newton "Jack" Daniel was a real person. And in case you're curious, here's his family tree. His father was Calaway Daniel. When you go to the Calaway Daniel family tree, look for Jasper Newton in the list of thirteen children. You can also trace Lynne Tolley's tie to Mr. Jack. Start with Calaway Daniel and then find his daughter Finetta Josephine Daniel (Lynne's great-grandmother). Finetta was the mother of Lem Motlow and Lillian Elizabeth Motlow (Lynne's grandmother). Lillian was the mother of James Conner Tolley (Lynne's father). And that's how Lynne Tolley came to have Jack Daniel in her blood. The rest of us will have to be content to have his spirit in our blood.
Though he is still with us in spirit, Jack Daniel died in 1911. He's buried in Lynchburg. It's the headstone with the two chairs. Mr. Jack never married, but the chairs were placed there for the many ladies who mourned his passing.
