BID ON A BARREL – ALL FOR A GREAT CAUSE

ABOUT THE BARREL TREE:

The Jack Daniel’s Barrel Tree is a tradition that started in 2011 at the Jack Daniel Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee. Jack Daniel's only uses new charred oak barrels to make its whiskey and they are never filled a second time. The barrels that were used to build all the trees were earlier entrusted to mature the famed Tennessee Whiskey and will now be bringing another special holiday 'spirit' to many of their friends around the country.

ABOUT “OPERATION RIDE HOME” -JACK DANIEL'S & THE ARMED SERVICES YMCA TEAM UP!

Since its beginning in 2011, the Jack Daniel Distillery and the Armed Services YMCA have assisted over 10,000 individual junior-enlisted service members and their families. Servicemen and women from the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard have been assisted with travel to all 50 states.
