Jack Daniel’s Old No.7 Mr. Jack’s 160th Birthday 1850 to 2010 160th A town fire destroyed the courthouse records, and conflicting dates on Mr. Jack’s and his mother’s headstones have left his date of birth in question. It’s customary to celebrate Mr. Jack’s birthday in September so he gets a whole month. But for a man as unique as Jack Daniel, one day just wouldn’t seem proper, anyway.

Born on September 5, 1850, Jasper Newton “Jack Daniel“ was the youngest of ten children. His parents were of Scottish and Irish descent, and in keeping with his rich cultural heritage, Daniel opened a distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee, in 1866. His eponymous distillery was the first registered distillery in the country (at the time, distilleries were required to register with the federal government, and Jack Daniel Distillery Distillery was given Registered Distillery Number 1). Today, Jack Daniel Distillery Distillery is one of the most distinguished and recognizable names in the spirits industry.
