LYNCHBURG, TN

My first time in Tennessee! First stop was the Jack Daniels Distillery which is in the small town of Lynchburg. This is the same exact location of where Jack Daniels all started. When I entered the visitor center, I was willing to pay for a tour fee, but I soon realized there wasn't any fee for the tour. There is only a fee if you want to do a sampling. I opted in for just the tour, which lasted for approximately an hour. The tour is opened daily between 9:00am - 4:30pm and you will not be disappointed in any way! At the visitor center, they sign you up to get a number and once your number is called, you go outside and wait for the tour to begin. From there, a bus picks you up and drives you through the town square and then you get drop off at the place where it all started. The guide takes you through the factory where they process their wheat, rye, barley and corn. One of the most interesting parts about the tour is where they get the water to make the whiskey. It comes straight from a spring that flows out of a limestone cave. It's the same spring that Jack used when he first started making whiskey 140 years ago. Lynchburg is in a dry county, which means you cannot buy alcohol at any of the local stores. The only place at the visitor center, so make sure you pick up a bottle before you leave. For an extra ten bucks, they can engrave your name on the bottle!
