On arrival at Nashville Tennessee, the guests received a hearty welcome by the Jack Daniel’s officials who treated them to some southern hospitality over a mouthwatering Jack Daniel’s infused barbeque dinner at the Hard Rock Café.

On arrival at Lynchburg they met the master distiller, Jeff Arnett and his team who took the guests on a very thorough tour of the grounds.

The guests were shown the oldest building in the distillery that housed Jack Daniel’s office. It has been maintained in the same condition since his death.



They were then shown how the barrels were made; each Jack Daniel’s barrel is unique in that no two barrels are made from the same wood and for that reason no two barrels taste the same. The grooves within the barrel help age the whiskey as they add richness and depth to the taste.



Later on, they were taken into the mellowing unit where a special mellowing display was set up just for them. Here they learnt about the art of charcoal mellowing and how each drop of Jack Daniel’s whiskey is then slow dripped through 10 feet of sugar maple charcoal for that smooth signature finish that makes the whiskey, Tennessee whiskey.

Following the charcoal mellowing display, the guests were taken to the tasting unit for the selection of their barrels during the tasting session where they were educated on the different variations of Jack Daniel’s whiskey.  Afterwards, guests were able to choose a barrel, which was personalized with their club names.

The personalized bottles from the barrels will be available at Quiliox Night Club, Road Runners Night Club, The Place, Play Abuja and Caribbean Lounge Abuja from August 2015.



Jack Daniels Single Barrel is a premium whiskey held at the highest standard of craftsmanship and selection. It is quite different from the rest of the Jack Daniel’s Family as 1 out of every 100 barrels is specially selected and set aside in order to produce it. It is then left to mature in the highest reaches of the barrelhouse where dramatic temperature changes cause the colour and taste to deepen further.
