WHISKEY INDUSTRY NEWS — It’s number one of just 107 built and it will be auctioned off this Tuesday with proceeds to benefit Jack Daniel’s Operation Ride Home. Say hello to the 2021 Jack Daniel’s Gentleman Jack Indian Roadmaster Dark Horse. Jack Daniel’s and Indian designed the bike in a collaboration with Klock Werks Kustom Cycles.

The bike carries many attributes that reflect the whiskey distilling process such as the bike’s custom Whiskey Pearl paint scheme and oakwood accents inspired by the rich and elongated Jack Daniel’s mellowing process. It reflects Jack Daniel’s branding on both the seat and tank as well as Gentleman Jack engraved floorboards.
