I heard this on The Weather Channel on TV this morning…
Because of the current drought in Tennessee, the “special spring” that provides water for Jack Daniels Whiskey isn’t producing much water lately.
The reporter on The Weather Channel went on to say:
Distillers at Jack Daniels Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee are looking for ways to cut back on the amount of water used in the fermenting process.”
I can’t help but wonder if true whiskey aficionados will be able to tell the difference between a 2007 pre-drought bottle of Jack Daniels Whiskey, compared to a 2007 post-drought bottle of Jack Daniels Whiskey.
More About Jack Daniel’s Cave Spring Water
From the Jack Daniel’s website: “This water flows year-round at 800 gallons per minute at a constant temperature of 56Ã‚Â° and is virtually iron free. It’s the reason why the Distillery was located in this spot originally — and why it’s remained there ever since. Just outside the cave you’ll find a statue of Jack Daniel. The man himself, standing guard over this prized spring.”
