LOCAL NEWS — Lots of locals are about to become celebrities.

It’s being billed at the “untold story of Jack Daniels” … a new documentary about our local product will hit big screens – including the Regal Cinema in Tullahoma – on May 11 only. It’s a one night event and sure to be a sell out locally. Tickets will be available beginning tomorrow (February 21) at this link.

The documentary will feature country music stars Eric Church and Shooter Jennings as well as notables like author John Grisham, Nancy Sinatra, and actor Tim Matheson as they embark on a 57,000 mile journey across five countries and 17 time zones to examine what makes the Jack Daniel’s brand so unique.

“Our film making journey proved that Jack Daniel’s is easily the most iconic whiskey brand in the world. No matter where we went – from Tennessee to Japan to Cuba to the outback of Australia … and even Scotland – we always found someone who had a compelling, personal story to tell about Jack. It’s become part of popular culture everywhere,” said director Greg Olliver.

“With unprecedented access that was given to us by Jack Daniel’s, we uncovered surprising stories that began even before Jack started making his own whiskey. We’re proud to present this insightful, whiskey-soaked adventure that tells the story of Jack that’s been 150+ years in the making.”

The film starts in Lynchburg – where every single drop of Jack Daniel’s is made – and then travels to the outback of Australia, from Beverly Hills to the streets of Havana, Cuba to examine why a world of people identifies withour distinctly American brand.
