Jack Daniel's has long been the preferred whiskey of rock stars. From lead singers to lead guitarists, no stadium-filling musician travels without a bottle of his favorite Tennessee Whiskey.
But before today's frontmen and axemen pledged their allegiance to Jack Daniel's, America's oldest registered distillery had another famous musician fan:
That's right. Back in the 1950s, it wasn't uncommon for Ol' Blue Eyes to hold a glass of Jack Daniel's aloft during one of his shows and call it "the nectar of the gods." Sinatra always preferred two fingers of Jack Daniel's, three rocks and a splash of water. In fact, he was so particular about his brand that he even had a blazer made, replete with a breast pocket patch for the "Jack Daniel's Country Club," a club so exclusive it never existed.
To honor Ol' Blue Eyes, Jack Daniel's--producer of the world-famous Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey--is rolling out Sinatra Select. Sippers will immediately detect Sinatra Select's rich amber color, bold character and a pleasant smokiness, followed by an incredibly smooth vanilla finish. The smooth, bold character of the whiskey embodies the smooth, bold character of the man himself, Frank Sinatra.
