Jack Daniels Sinatra Select Tennessee Whiskey 1L

Sinatra Select pays tribute to Jack’s biggest fan, Frank Sinatra. Made using unique 'Sinatra Barrels' that have deep grooves specially carved into their staves to expose the whiskey to extra layers of toasted oak. This added exposure imparts a rich amber colour, bold character, and pleasant smokiness, punctuated by an incredibly smooth vanilla finish. Much like Frank, this Tennessee Whiskey is one of a kind.

Jack Daniels Sinatra Select Tennessee Whiskey 1L is a special edition release from the Jack Daniels Distillery that commemorates the half-century association between Frank Sinatra and the iconic whiskey brand. According to Alastair Smart, writing for the Telegraph, Jack Daniel's whiskey was Sinatra's signature drink, and he was rarely seen without a tumbler in his hand. The Washington Post even went so far as to nickname him 'The Bourbon Baritone', and the signal for party-time at Twin Palms came when Sinatra hoisted a flag bearing the Jack Daniel's logo above the mansion. It was perhaps fitting, then, that Sinatra was buried in 1998 with a bottle of JD slipped into his coat pocket. To honour this legendary association, the Jack Daniels Distillery has released this special edition whiskey, packaged in a presentation carton with booklet. The Jack Daniels Sinatra Select Tennessee Whiskey 1L is a smooth and complex whiskey that is sure to delight even the most discerning whiskey enthusiasts. Its rich flavour profile features notes of vanilla, toasted oak and caramel, with a hint of spice and a long, satisfying finish. This special edition release is a must-try for anyone who appreciates the finer things in life and is a fitting tribute to the enduring legacy of Frank Sinatra and his love of Jack Daniel's whiskey.

So, who was Jack Daniel? 

The precise date of birth for Jasper Newton 'Jack' Daniel remains a mystery, as his birth records met an unfortunate fate in a courthouse fire. Various sources propose the year 1846, but the brand itself insists on September 1850 as the birthdate. There is also uncertainty surrounding the establishment of the distillery, though it undoubtedly took place sometime between 1860 and 1880 in Lynchburg, Tennessee. Jack had Welsh and Scottish ancestry and was one of thirteen siblings. He enlisted the help of his nephew, the evocatively named Lem Motlow, who managed the company's bookkeeping with an almost Steinbeckian flair.

In the early hours of one fateful morning, Jack Daniel was struggling to open his safe. Legend has it that he frequently forgot the combination and, driven to frustration by the safe's obstinacy, resorted to giving it a solid kick. Such was his intensity that Jack ended up with an infected toe, which eventually led to blood poisoning. In 1907, Jack's deteriorating health prompted him to hand over the distillery to Lem. Sadly, Jack Daniel passed away in 1911.

The Era of Prohibition

As the early 20th century unfolded, the prohibition of alcohol was gaining ground. Tennessee enacted its prohibition in 1910, prompting Lem Motlow to relocate the distillery to St. Louis, Missouri, and later to Birmingham, Alabama. However, local laws and the eventual arrival of nationwide Prohibition led to the distillery's closure.

Lem Motlow subsequently became a Tennessee state senator and played a pivotal role in the repeal of the state's prohibition laws, allowing production to resume in 1938. The interruptions continued during World War II when distillation was paused nationwide between 1942 and 1946, primarily due to concerns about the quality of grains. Lem only resumed production in 1947 when he secured a reliable grain supply.

Is Jack Daniel's Bourbon?

Despite bearing many similarities to bourbon in its production methods, Jack Daniel's whiskey is not classified as bourbon due to one crucial distinction. The whiskey undergoes a unique process of filtration through sugar maple charcoal before maturation. This distinctive process plays a pivotal role in shaping the whiskey's character, leading to its categorisation as Tennessee Whiskey.
