The name Jack Daniel's is as familiar to most Americans as McDonald's or Michael Jordan. While it's one of the most renowned liquors in the world, you may not know the story behind the whiskey and the man who brought it to fruition. The history of the product and its creator is a true testament to the wild and electrifying American way of business and innovation. Does this Spark an idea?
Legacy of the Bottle
In search for the perfect signature bottle, Jack Daniel abandoned the traditional round, glass-mold bottle for a unique square bottle with a fluted neck in 1895. "A square bottle for a square shooter," Jack used to say. Bearing the name of the distillery, the signature bottle is also adorned with the honors awarded to the whiskey since its inception.
As it is stated on the official website, "Some folks might think the label on our Old No. 7 Whiskey Bottle is kind of cluttered. But there's a lot packed on that label. A list of gold medals Jack Daniel's has won. A little history. And some of the many stories that make Jack Daniel's unique!"
