My kids took me to Nashville for Mother's Day. While we were there we took a ride out to Lynchburg to visit the Jack Daniels Distillery. It was one of the most enjoyable tours I have been on.
The tour begins with a short video about the history of Jack Daniels and how he came to own the company at the age of 13. They then take you on a short but ride to start the tour. The tour consist of going through the whole process of how Jack Daniels is made and what makes it different from other whiskeys.
I am not a Jack Daniels fan but the tour was very interesting. Our tour guide was great not only was he well versed in the history of Jack Daniels he made it a lot of fun, making up little things as we went along. I did not know that Lynchburg where Jack Daniels is made is a dry county. You can not buy liquor or drink liquor there.
Of course they did find a loop hole in the law and they do have a gift shop where you can buy bottles of Jack Daniel. These bottle are commerative additions and can not be purchased in a store, therefore they are considered souveniors!
The tour last about an hour and there is some walking but nothing strenuous. Aslo the tour is free and they run about every 15 minutes so there never is a long wait. The groups are kept small so you don't feel like you get lost in the crowd and for all you NASCAR fans they have the Jack Daniels car in the gift shop.
Even though it is Jack Daniels I would recommend this to even kids. There is a lot of history in them their hills!
