WHAT: Over the next couple of months, Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel is hosting gatherings at five distinct locations around the country, in places as unique as Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel itself. Given that domestic whiskey sales have soared 40% in the past five years, according to Euromonitor, and that the appreciation of craft in all things culinary are at a fever pitch, partnering with some of the most respected and innovative chefs around the world to unite these ingredients is a natural evolution for Single Barrel. Renowned chefs including Jimmy Bannos, Jr., Jimmy Bannos Sr., Maneet Chauhan, Deb Paquette, Paul Qui, Daniel Rose, and Mindy Segal, among others throughout the U.S. will prepare meals their own way, using their signature methods and local ingredients to bring something entirely different to the table. Their unique courses will be paired with Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel cocktails while Jack Daniel’s Master Distiller Jeff Arnett and Assistant Master Distiller Chris Fletcher will be at select locations to conduct tastings and educate attendees. Proceeds from each of the events will support the charities of the participating chefs’ choice.

ABOUT JACK DANIEL’S SINGLE BARREL TENNESSEE WHISKEY:
Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Tennessee Whiskey is a 94-proof single barrel Tennessee Whiskey with a robust, full-bodied flavor complemented by Jack Daniel’s smooth charcoal-mellowed character. Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Tennessee Whiskey was introduced to select U.S. markets February 1997 and to Germany later that year. In 1998, Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Tennessee Whiskey became available in Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland.
Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Tennessee Whiskey is the world’s only charcoal-mellowed single barrel Tennessee whiskey. After the spirit is charcoal mellowed, each barrel of Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel is matured in selected areas of the warehouses where the whiskey’s color and taste deepen and mature an extra measure during the changing Tennessee seasons. Our Master Tasters then sample the whiskey from those areas and sets aside the barrels whose contents they feel have matured to create a particularly flavorful and aromatic whiskey. The bold, full-bodied taste of Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Tennessee Whiskey -- toasted oak flavor and intense vanilla and caramel essences -- is the work of craftsmen with a singular devotion to old-time whiskey-making.
Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Tennessee Whiskey, 47% alcohol by volume (94 proof). Distilled and bottled by the Jack Daniel Distillery, Lem Motlow, Proprietor, Lynchburg ,Tennessee, U.S.A.
