Cuestion your Tequila…

Posted in Uncategorized on August 8, 2011 by lynchburglegend

This was brought to our attention the other day:  Cuestion Tequila ages their spirits in Jack Daniels barrels.  Tequila with a Jack Daniels twist, we will have to give this one a try!!

Cuestión Barrel Aging

We age our Tequila 50% – 300% longer than almost any other premium tequila on the market, and there is no greater vessel in the world for aging distilled spirits than whiskey-cured, charcoal finished American Oak barrels. We pride ourselves on importing ours from the best-known whiskey company in the world. In fact, when we first brought Cuestion Tequila to the United States, we did so in Tennessee, home of the world-famous Jack Daniels distillery.

Is my Jack Daniel’s tin box an antique?

Our tin boxes are “antique replicas” that have been produced since the early 1970s. We use them for our “holiday packages,” which are sold in selected stores around Christmas. Now and then folks tell us they find the tin boxes at flea markets, garage sales, and even antique stores; however, they would not be considered authentic antiques.

Is Jack Daniel’s a bourbon?

Jack Daniel’s is not a bourbon – it’s a Tennessee Whiskey. Jack Daniel’s is dripped slowly – drop-by-drop – through ten feet of firmly packed charcoal (made from hard sugar maple) before going into new charred oak barrels for aging. This special process gives Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey its rare smoothness. It’s this extra step – charcoal mellowing – that makes Jack Daniel’s a Tennessee Whiskey.

What is Jack Daniel’s Green Label Tennessee Whiskey?

Jack Daniel’s Green Label is a lighter, less mature whiskey with a lighter color and character. The barrels selected for Green Label tend to be on the lower floors and more toward the center of the warehouse where the whiskey matures more slowly.

Good Questions:

Posted in Uncategorized on June 11, 2011 by lynchburglegend

Our friends at Straightbourbon.com have answered some good questions, we thought you might like to know…

Where is bourbon made? 

Bourbon can be made anywhere in the United States. All but a couple of brands are made in Kentucky, and Kentucky is the only state allowed to put its name on the bottle. And as Kentucky distillers are quick to point out, Bourbon is not Bourbon unless the label says so.


 Why is this whiskey called bourbon?

It takes its name from Bourbon County, located in the central Bluegrass region of Kentucky. It was formed from Fayette county in 1785 while still a part of Virginia and named to honor the French Royal Family and was once the major transshipment site for distilled spirits heading down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers to New Orleans. Barrels shipped from its ports were stamped with the county’s name, and Bourbon and whiskey soon became synonymous.

 
 
Is Jack Daniel’s a bourbon?

 Jack Daniel’s, is not considered a bourbon because it is charcoal-mellowed — slowly, drop by drop, filtered through sugar-maple charcoal — prior to aging, which many experts say gives it a different character. The process, called the Lincoln County Process, infuses a sweet and sooty character into the distillate as it removes impurities. But up to and after the charcoal filtering, the Jack Daniel’s production is much the same as any other Bourbon. Jack Daniel’s and George Dickel are two fine Tennessee Whiskeys though neither can be called bourbon.
