Why jack denial is not a bourbon?
Jack Daniel's is not bourbon - The mash for Jack Daniel's is made from corn, rye, and malted barley, and is distilled in copper stills it's a Tennessee Whiskey. Jack Daniel's is dripped slowly - drop-by-drop - through ten feet (3.0
m) stacks of firmly packed charcoal (made from hard sugar maple) before going into new charred oak barrels for maturing. This special process gives Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey its rare smoothness.
The mash bill for Jack Daniel's is 80% corn, 8% rye, and 12% malted barley. The corn is #1 yellow corn. They say with a higher corn amount, you need a higher malted barley amount to help ferment it. They have 56 fermentation vats on-site that hold 40,000 gallons apiece
Jack Daniel's uses an own yeast strain to ensure the same quality of fermentation and the same aroma over the years. This yeast is added to the mash to work on the fermentation for a few days until the beer is ready.
