Launched in 1988 the Gentleman Jack expression is the only whiskey that is twice charcoal mellowed making it a very smooth sipping whiskey. Every bourbon/whiskey has five sources of flavour however in the process of making Jack Daniel's there is a sixth added; charcoal mellowing. The six sources of flavour in making Jack Daniel's are the grain recipe, water source, fermentation, distillation, charcoal mellowing and the maturation process. Where Gentleman Jack differs from Black Label is that it has a second charcoal mellowing process that occurs after initial barrel aging and before bottling; this defines the smoothness Gentleman Jack has to offer.
After much anticipation, The Jack Daniel's Distillery is excited to present a new look for Gentleman Jack Rare Tennessee Whiskey. And while we may have refined the outward appearance, you will be happy to hear that nothing has changed inside. Gentleman Jack is still made using only the finest grains and iron-free water from Cave Spring and of course, it's still charcoal mellowed twice - once before it goes into the barrel and again after it has fully matured - all resulting in a whiskey of exceptionally smooth character.
