Historical Dreamer

For Jack Daniel, whiskey making was a calling that came at an early age. At the age of seven Jack went to live with Rev. Dan Call, a lay preacher who operated a small still. Jack was taught the art of making the mellowing whiskey by Mr. Call at his distiller. In 1859, a temperance preaching woman known as Lady Love convinced Rev. Call he’d have to choose between ministering and making whiskey. So he sold hist still to Jack. For a 13 year old boy Jack had a good sense of business  and he was soon driving wagons loads of his whiskey down to Alabama and other southern states with the help of his cousin Button, where they sold it to the troops fighting the War between the states. Thus began the history of Jack Daniel’s Whiskey: Historical Pipe Dreamer.

Each month I will present one Historical Dreamer.
