In 1907, a 61-year-old (we think - his date of birth is a matter of some controversy) Jack Daniel gave his growing Tennessee distillery to his favourite nephew, Lem Motlow. The two had been making whisky together for several years. One of the first things Lem Motlow did was introduce a new lower-strength, white label whisky.

Jack Daniel's 1907 is a brand in that tradition. It has received a very limited release. It went on sale in 2011 and only a limited number of bottles went on sale. Also, they have only been officially released in Australia. The Jack Daniel's Distillery is using this to see if there is an appetite for a lighter version of its whisky.

Jack Daniel's 1907 is made the same way as the traditional Jack Daniel's Old No.7. It is made using the same recipe and is then mellowed by being dripped through 10 feet of charcoal. The barrels in which the whisky is matured are stored in specific areas of the Jack Daniel's barrel houses. The barrels are kept in the cooler areas to give Jack Daniel's 1907 its sweet and light character - it is bottled at just ABV 37%.

Given it has only been released in Australia to date, Jack Daniel's 1907 can only be bought in the UK on the Internet. Just as well, as the white label could easily be mistaken for Jim Beam on a shop shelf.
