I haven't been but I'd love to go. Jack Daniels is one of my favorite "shots".

Not Jack but I have been to the MAkers Mark Distillery several times. The tour is well worth the trip

I went twice back in 1976 while in A.I.T. in the Army at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama. First time I went alone because my future ex-wife hadn't come down to join me. The second time, we took her parents...her Dad loves Jack Daniels. When we got there I told him not to get TOO excited because he would NOT be getting any free samples. The distillery is in a dry county.

The tour itself is a lot of fun. In '76, they had a bunch of old guys, probably those who had worked there since forever, giving the tours and they made it interesting. At the end of the tour, they took a photo of the group and that was to be sent to you. Both times, the photos didn't make it but they DID send numbered woodcuts of parts of the distillery. I have one of the barrel house and one of the fermenting vat building.

If the White Rabbit saloon is still open in Lynchburg, get lunch there. When I went, they had an excellent sandwich bar (fresh bread, delicious cold cuts, numerous kinds of cheese and every other condiment you can think of to put on a sandwich), their freshly made lemonade was delicious and their hot-out-of-the-oven pecan pie melted in your mouth.

Go, you will love it. Hit the gift shop at the end of the tour, they have bottles of Jack you can't get any where else.

It's a dry county,maybe they give-you a taste-test like at the end of Budweiser's tour here in St.Louis....I see they got a room called the Squire room for members only or something....

I went a few years ago and as I recall three were 3 places you could by Jack in the county and the gift shop was one of them, can't remember the other 2 places.
