RE: [BULK][Distillers] Re: Aging whiskey with oak chips and temperatures
Distillery OLDER than U.S.A.-----23 Yrs. Before the birth of the nation. Its old motto was,
THE WHISKEY THAT WARMED THE REVELOUTION !

Your 100% correct - Jack Daniels, located in Lynchburg, Tenn., Not
Lynchburg, Va (which i live near - and btw, that name give me the
shudders lol), keeps their barrels in outside buildings relying on
temperature differentials (as much as 10F in winter to over 100F in
summer) to age their whiskeys.
Being the home of the nation's (good ol' US of A) oldest registered
distillery and placed on the National Register of Historic Places,
they wont even acknowledge George Dickels as another Tennessee
See my posting - msg # 40939 for the concept behind these drastic
temperature changes. Have been Drinkin Jacks ol' Number 7 for
many, many years now (that number is a whole nother story - see if
ya can figure it out :):):).
