Jack Daniel’s tie to music is a long one. In fact, it goes all the way back to Jack himself. It seems Jack Daniel had a taste for music. At his home in Lynchburg, he built an upstairs ballroom and kept a grand piano and other instruments on hand to entertain folks who happened to visit. Jack knew that music had a way of bringing people together. That’s why it only makes sense that in 1892 he opened two saloons on the Lynchburg town square for live music.
Today, Jack Daniel’s continues to play a part in live music culture. It’s not unusual for a garage or indie band’s photograph to include a bottle of Jack gripped almost like one of the instruments. The music has changed a good bit from back in Jack’s day to now. But one thing hasn’t – the spirit behind the music.

If you find the fire of ginger beer a bit too challenging for your taste buds, then try swapping for ginger ale. This sweeter alternative still delivers the taste but without the intense kick.
