Jack Daniel's Time Travelling Whiskey Experience

Drink, Events, Sydney / 20 July 2016

Here’s to another 150 years of Jack Daniel’s whiskey

Whiskey enthusiasts are invited to raise a glass (or two) in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the original Jack Daniel Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee. Assistant Master Distiller Chris Fletcher will be leading the Jack Daniel’s Journey through 150 years of Craft & Cocktail Culture. He’ll be treating would be whiskey experts to a trip down memory lane with a night of iconic cocktails from even more iconic eras. 

Swapping tiny town Lynchburg’s dry nightlife for Sydney’s slightly better one, Fletcher will be flying down under during July and August (that’s the 28th and 29th of July for you Sydney-siders) to join in the festivities.

The nights complimentary entertainment will also include a whiskey tasting master class alongside Fletcher. However, be warned, whiskey runs pure and true through Fletcher’s veins.
