The Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee is the place where millions of bottles of this world-famous whiskey are made every single year. For fans of this malt beverage, Lynchburg can be considered a sort of Mecca as it is the only location on Earth where Jack Daniels is produced.

Thousands of visitors travel to Lynchburg every year to visit the distillery and its museum in order to learn more about the production of the drink and to try it for themselves.

Jack Daniel’s Hollow, the valley location where the whiskey is made, is specifically conducive to the production of this beverage due to the mountain spring which comes from a limestone cave and is used for the production of the whiskey. It has the perfect mineral composition to make the whiskey taste absolutely delicious.

So, it’s obvious that the only place where this whiskey can be made is in this small Tennessee town. Did you know, though, that there is an ironic secret about this place?

Moore County, where the town of Lynchburg is located, is a dry county. This means that the county does not allow the sale of alcohol in its restaurants or shops! The only place in the county, in fact, where you can buy alcohol is the distillery, where small commemorative bottles are available for purchase.

Isn’t that interesting?
