What is there to do at the Jack Daniel Distillery?

Get a firsthand look at the distillery and get a guided tour to learn the complete history of Jack Daniel whiskey.  The tour usually lasts a little bit over an hour.

For a fee, you can also take a sampling tour.  And, who wouldn’t want to take the sampling tour, amiright?  This tour lasts just under two hours.

Tours are offered first-come, first-serve style every Monday-Sunday except for major holidays.

Is there anything else to do in Lynchburg?

Why, yes there is.

Lynchburg Hardware & General Store

This is where you can buy all of your Jack Daniel’s memorabilia as the distiller doesn’t sell any.

Historic Lynchburg Square

I’m a big fan of historic squares and Lynchburg offers one that will make you think you stepped back in time.  The Courthouse was built in 1885, the Old Jail has been made into a museum and there are plenty of unique shops and restaurants to bide your time.

Miss Mary Bobo’s Boarding House & Restaurant

Since 1908, this historic home has served traditional food.  Southern hospitality included.  It’s been said that Jack Daniel frequented Miss Mary’s quite often for his lunch.  Reservations required.

    Jack has been a guest in our home on many occasions and been a part of many a girlfriend weekends… HA HA! I have never been to a distillery but have a feeling I’d enjoy it.

    Not a whiskey fan but did have it once. The town looks lovely-interesting that it is a dry county

    I believe we do have a bottle of Jack Daniels nestling amongst our bottles of (mainly) Scotch malts! I’ve visited many Scottish distilleries, and one in Nova Scotia. Will add JD to the list some day.

    Ah, we missed out on touring the Jameson Distillery in Dublin (instead we hit up the Guinness Storehouse) but we did learn a little tidbit about Irish and Scottish Whiskey. As the story goes, both countries were upset with the other for distilling the liquor and the case went to court where the judge decided that the Irish would call their liquor Whisky without an e and the Scottish would use the e version, Whiskey, because their product was tripple distilled (longer process, longer name). Funny story but I haven’t heard of a better way to explain the name difference 🙂

    Ireland is quite fond of its whiskey so I’ve been to Bushmills, listened to all the specifics, watched all the stations of the factory but of course the best part was to taste all the different versions and ages. I can honestly say that understanding the process made me a fan!

    I would love to visit the official Jack Daniels home! I love that you are continuing to write about TN attractions because there are clearly so many that I have yet to visit despite living in neighboring Arkansas. Hopefully will head over there sometime soon.

    I visited a rice wine distillery in Taiwan which offered free samples – some of them were 58 percent proof and would make you hair stand on your head and your throat burned! It was an experience all the same!

    I am sure my husband would love to visit the Jack Daniel Distillery. He thinks it is one of the best tasting whiskeys out there!

    That really does look like a fun stop. I’m pretty sure we’ve driven right through there before. Next time we need to slow down and experience Lynchburg.
