  • The distillery is open, operated by Jack Daniel Distillery, Lem Motlow, Prop., Inc., and owned by Brown-Forman Corporation from 1956 – present.

  • The distillery began using square-shaped bottles in 1897, with the square shape of the bottle intended to convey a sense of fairness and integrity. In 1904 the Old No. 7 takes the first gold medal at the World’s Fair in St. Louis, Missouri. Lem Motlow, nephew of Jack took responsibilities in 1907. In 1919 the 18th amendment was ratified prohibition of alcohol and Jess Motlow can’t legally sell his supply of whiskey, so he stores it in warehouses in Birmingham, Cincinnati, and St. Louis. The production restarted again in 1938. In 1941, Lem commissions a life-size statue of Jack to be erected in front of the cave spring. The Jack Daniel’s distillery ceased operations from 1942 to 1946 when the U.S. government banned the manufacture of whiskey due to World War II. Motlow resumed production of Jack Daniel’s in 1947 after good-quality corn was again available. Motlow died the same year and the distillery was inherited from his children. The company was sold to the Brown-Forman Corporation in 1956. In 1988, Master Distiller Jimmy Bedford’s introduces double-mellowed Gentleman Jack to the American market. In 1997 introduces the Single Barrel Select. In 2011, introduces the Jack Daniel’s Honey, inspiring a whole new generation of Jack drinkers. Four years later, Jack Daniel’s Fire is introduced. The visitor centre was completed in 1999.
