The White Rabbit Saloon was Jack Daniel’s first whiskey bar. Opened in 1892 it was a place where Daniel wanted his friends to get together, a notion reflected in the packaging of this new limited edition bottle. An antique effect typography mirrors the era which it refers to and a nod to the saloon mirror depicts the importance of a well-loved local establishment.
Registered in 1866, the Jack Daniel’s distillery is the oldest in the US. This is also in Lynchburg, the place where Mr. Jasper ‘Jack’ Newton Daniel was born in September 1841. Whilst it is not known the date of Daniel’s exact birthday it is customary to mark the occasion annually throughout this month. Although Daniel died in 1908, his legacy remains fighting fit with a website dedicated to his birthday and Jack Daniel’s whiskey being the most famous brand around.
The White Rabbit bottle will be available to buy in Tennessee only, while supplies last. It may also be found in selected international markets and is to go on sale beginning this fall.
