With Jack Daniel’s bringing the true Taste of Tennessee to South Africa this summer, we thought we’d provide our readers with the chance to bring the Taste of Tennessee home.

What is the Taste of Tennessee? 

A curated experience by the brand which will offer South Africans the opportunity to experience and celebrate the best in true Southern hospitality through Jack Daniel’s inspired food, drinks, games, music and more.

Food – Whether drinking it neat, on the rocks, in a cocktail or using it as that special ingredient to transform your cooking, Jack Daniel’s delivers consistent quality that enhances every meal. Jack Daniel’s has always been a huge fan of whiskey and meat – a match made in heaven.

Drinks – Mixability, versatility, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey is made to be enjoyed your way for smooth sipping. Whether you are headed to a barbecue or if you are hosting your own get-together, Jack Daniel’s smooth sipping cocktails will make any friend of yours a friend of Jack.

Music – Jack Daniel’s has been supporting live music since 1892 – and live music and festivals are places where Jack feels most at home. Over the years, Jack’s whiskey has graced the stage with a number of well-known names. Well, at least in spirit. Some have even said that the history of rock ‘n roll is dripping with Jack Daniel’s. Through the years, Jack has made appearances concert tours with the likes of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Page and Plant, Guns ‘n Roses and Van Halen. Music has changed a good bit from back in Jack’s day to now – but one thing that hasn’t is the spirit behind the music.

Bring the Taste of Tennessee home with a Lynchburg Lemonade
