Parthenon and Jack Daniels Distillery
First stop Nashville, Tennessee.
It was the only stop we made in Nashville, though there are tons of things to do. The grand Ol' Opery would have been fun, but again next time.
If is wasn't for this spring the Jack Daniels distillery would have moved locations a long time ago.
He is actually sitting on the safe that killed Jack. Jack come in early one day and couldn't get the safe open so he kicked it. He kicked it so hard he broke his toe and never told anyone. It eventually turned into an infection and six years later he died from that infection.
All their barrels of whiskey are all aged in the area in huge barns. Rows and rows of barrels. It smelled so beautiful!
The barrels at the very top of the barn are the ones they sell as their single barrel whiskey. You can actually purchase a whole barrel for your self and your name will go up on the wall in the distillery. It's only $12,000...
