The Untold Story of the Enslaved Black Man Who Taught Jack Daniel How to Make Whiskey

Celebrating its 150th anniversary, the Jack Daniel’s whiskey brand is opting to share a part of its history that has never been told.

Up until now, the company’s history has been centered on the notion that revered founder Jack Daniel learned to distill his now famous whiskey from a minister named Dan Call. Tour guides at the company’s Lynchburg, Tennessee distillery are now telling a different story; Daniel was actually taught to distill by Nearis Green — an enslaved Black man owned by Call.
