Meet Chris Fletcher of Jack Daniel's

Author: Matt Wooler - Thursday, July 14, 2016

Here at Dramnation we are big supporters Jack Daniel's so it is no big ask for use to keep you informed that it’s Jack Daniel Distillery’s 150th anniversary. To get the celebrations started Chris Fletcher, Assistant Master Distiller, is coming to Australia on his first tour.

Born and bred in Lynchburg, Chris Fletcher has grown up a local lad and is now Assistant Master Distiller for Jack Daniel Distillery. Jack Daniel’s is in Chris’s blood with his grand father, Frank Bobo, having been the 5th in the line of Master Distillers. Like all distillers Chris is passionate about the whiskies he makes so when you get a chance to pick the brain and share a dram with someone like Chris you should not have to be asked twice.

Last year we covered several events relating to Jack Daniel's. For those lucky enough to attend we held our Southern Whisky On The Lawn tasting where we held a master class featuring Jack Daniels while enjoying some BBQ infused with Jack. Later i the year we got involved in the build of The Bar That Jack Built, and then held a ticket giveaway to attend the official launch of The Bar That Jack Built On Tour.

Chris will be touring Australia in through July to August hosting a series of master classes to both the public and drinks industry. Titled ‘A Journey through 150 Years of Craft & Cocktail Culture’ these master classes will be educating about the distillery's signature whiskies and history while getting to experience the “signature cocktails from iconic eras”.

To set the mood of what this tour is about we will quote:

“For this one-of-a-kind tour like no other, prepare to step back in time to 1920s prohibition, encounter the suave style of Frank Sinatra before embracing the thrilling times of 70s, 80s and 90s rock ‘n’ roll. Culturally so much has changed all the while Jack has been making his famous whiskey in one way, in one place for 150 years.”


Cities to be visited will be Sydney, Perth and Brisbane. The locations for these public events are to remain a secret until closer to the date but you can be rest assured, like all things Jack, it will be as sweet as the liquor itself.
