History: Jack Daniel
Jack Daniel was a legend. Born Welsh, an immigrant from Wales to the USA. In 1866 he created the whiskey named after him, Jack Daniels, which the company claims being the best-seller in the world.
On October 10, 1911 Jasper Newton “Jack” Daniel, founder of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee whiskey distillery, spoke his dying words,
“One last drink, please”. Words only a true Welshman could say upon their deathbed…
Jack Daniel’s death came as a consequence of frustratingly kicking his safe after forgetting his combination.
His toe became injured and subsequently infected, causing septicemia, or “blood poisoning”, which ultimately killed him.
