Jack Daniel's

Jack Daniel's is inarguably the most famous American whiskey. Located in Lynchburg, Tennessee, the Daniel's distillery draws a number of tourists who follow the so-called Whiskey Trail through Kentucky and Tennessee.

You will find statues of the famous founder and the brand's namesake all over the distillery grounds. Interestingly, Lynchburg is in Moore County, a dry county that has not allowed alcohol to be sold locally since Prohibition. It is not, however, illegal to distill liquors in Moore County.
