Calling all whiskey aficionados and adventurers! If you’re in Nashville and looking to embark on a pilgrimage to one of the most iconic whiskey distilleries in the world, you’re in luck. The Jack Daniel’s Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee, is just a short scenic drive away. Let’s dive into everything you need to know to make your visit as smooth as a glass of Jack.

Where in the World is Jack Daniel’s Distillery?

Nestled in the quaint town of Lynchburg, Tennessee, the Jack Daniel’s Distillery is about 75 miles southeast of Nashville. This charming locale is not just a whiskey haven but a delightful slice of Americana. Despite its global fame, Lynchburg is a small town located in a dry county – yes, you read that right, no alcohol sold here! The Tennessee county of Moore has stayed dry since prohibition. The good news though, sampling whiskey is permitted in the distillery and on the tours.

If you don’t know the full story of Jack Daniel and how he founded the distillery, it’s well worth a read.

Uber or Lyft to Jack Daniel’s (Not A Reliable Option)

For those who prefer Uber or Lyft while traveling to get from point A to point B, we would caution against booking a ride to Jack Daniel’s Distillery in Lynchburg, TN. While Uber/Lyft will drop you off at Jack Daniel’s, there is no Uber or Lyft to get back to Nashville. Typically someone from the distillery has to bring traveler’s back.
