  • It is a tribute to Jack Daniel's world-renowned barrel. It provides guests with a unique experience that educates and celebrates one of the most unique aspects of the brand – the toasting and charring technique applied to the inside of every barrel. The Jack Daniel’s larger-than-life barrel invites whiskey aficionados to experience, through scent and flavour, the unique signature taste of Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Barrel Proof.
