Whiskey River: Jack’s Drowning!

Posted by Mark on November 16, 2007

No. This is too horrible to contemplate:


Here’s a sobering thought: Hundreds of bottles of Jack Daniel’s whiskey, some of it almost 100 years old, may be unceremoniously poured down a drain because authorities suspect it was being sold by someone without a license.

Officials seized 2,400 bottles late last month during warehouse raids in Nashville and Lynchburg, the southern Tennessee town where the whiskey is distilled.

“Punish the person, not the whiskey,” said an outraged Kyle MacDonald, 28, a Jack Daniel’s drinker from British Columbia who promotes the whiskey on his blog. “Jack never did anything wrong, and the whiskey itself is innocent.”

Talk about War Crimes. Where’s the UN High Court when you need it?

    I was sickened by this story… good intended but archaic laws gone wrong.

    Pouring 100 year old Jack down the drain… Ug.

    I am deeply saddened to hear this. My condolences to Daniel’s family.
