Jack Daniel’s has been a favorite of drinkers and foodies alike since its opening in 1875.
Recently tours at the famous Jack Daniel’s distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee have begun to state the fact that it was a slave named Nearis Green, who was the one responsible for teaching the famous art of distilling to Jack Daniel. For years it was said that Dan Call, a white preacher, was the one distilling the whisky. This has proven to be untrue. Green was one of Call’s slaves.
Slaves were often the distillers in such cases because of the hard labor; they even gained reputations for being excellent distillers.
In an article from the New York Times it said, “This version of the story was never a secret, but it is one that the distillery has only recently begun to embrace, tentatively, in some of its tours, and in a social media and marketing campaigns this summer.”
The article also mentioned that descendants of Green currently work at the famous Jack Daniel’s distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee.
