Tennessee Bicentennial


On June 1, 1796, President George Washington signed a bill that granted statehood to Tennessee, thus making it the 16th State of the Union.

In anticipation of Tennessee’s Bicentennial, the Distillery released a replica of the original Centennial bottle in 1995. This 750ml Bicentennial bottle, which included a numbered hang tag, was filled with 96 proof whiskey and sold in a box. Its release not only honors Jack Daniel and his original Centennial bottle, but also pays tribute to the state of Tennessee.

Additional information about this bottle provided in Volume I of the Jack Daniel’s Bottle Collector’s Guide.
