    The real secret behind the number 7

    We have outlined the various legends known around the number 7 of Jack Daniel's. So, which one is the real one? Actually, none . 😮

    But then, where does this number 7 come from? In reality, it was born... because of an administrative requirement ! At the time Jack Daniel's was founded, distilleries were not allowed to use brand names : the American government gave them a number, and they had to use that as their "brand". You guessed it: the Daniel's distillery received number 7 . Subsequently, when distilleries were allowed to have their own name, the number 7 was retained, since its reputation was already established . This is why Jack Daniel's bottles bear the number 7!
