Tennessee Off The Beaten Path: 43 reviews and 41 photos


Located in tiny Lynchburg (population 361), the Jack Daniel's Distillery is the nation's oldest registered distillery. It was founded by Jack Daniel in 1866, and has been producing fine Tennessee "sippin' whiskey" ever since. It has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

A famous long-running advertising campaign showed Lynchburg as a place where time stands still, where the local good old boys put out "sippin' whiskey drop by drop."

Although output varies year by year, the distillery produces about 21,000,000 gallons (79,490,000 liters) of whiskey per year. Only all-natural corn, barley, rye, and spring water are used in the distilling process. (The spring from which the distillery gets its water comes from a cave that can be seen in the background of the picture, behind the statue of Jack Daniel).

The Jack Daniel's Distillery is the largest employer in Moore County, employing about 55 percent of the population.
