During a recent company-wide whiskey training, we had the pleasure of hosting brands and their ambassadors from around the world. Today we are filling your tumblers with words of wisdom from two of Americas’ greats: Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey and Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon. Whether you are a loyal whiskey drinker or a newbie, their insider knowledge, from personal favorite drinks to the best glass to use for your water of life, is sure to entertain.

Don Jean, the Off-Premise Manager for Jack Daniel’s, explains how they are similar yet different in addition to answering some very “swinging” questions about drinking whiskey from the right glass and how Frank Sinatra is connected to Jack Daniel’s. So come fly with us and learn a thing or two about one of America’s most beloved spirit brands!
