The irony of the Jack Daniel's Distillery being in a 'dry county' is lost on no one – local liquor laws dictate that no hard stuff can be sold within county lines. But don't fret – while at least one of its five tours are dry, the serious excursions, ranging from the 90-minute Flight of Jack Daniel's to the three-hour Taste of Lynchburg – which includes a fine meal at Miss Mary Bobo’s Boarding House – include plenty of whiskey.
Book all tours online in advance. This is the oldest registered distillery in the USA; the folks at Jack Daniel's have been dripping whiskey through layers of charcoal then aging it in oak barrels since 1866. It's located off Hwy 55 in tiny Lynchburg.
