Best Decanter For Jack Daniel’s
Jack Daniel’s is arguably the most famous American whiskey in the world. The name is synonymous with Tennessee whiskey. While the product fits the regulations to be called bourbon, the company decides not to value this classification, using Tennessee whiskey instead to distinguish the whiskey style and its roots in the Tennessee. Its smooth texture, almost maple syrup sweetness makes for a great versatile whiskey. This delicious whiskey owes much of its success to the first master distiller, Nearest Green, an enslaved distiller who trained and mentored the founder, Jack Daniel when he was a teenager and continued to work with Daniel after emancipation. Although he certainly hasn’t gotten much credit for it, thanks to the guidance of Nearest Green, Jack Daniel’s whiskey exists. Today, it is the number one sold American whiskey worldwide.
Why Use a Decanter?
While decanting wine helps the wine to open and actually changes the composition of wine, the same is not true for spirits. Liquor is not as heavily affected by air as wine. Whiskey can be in contact with air without changing much while wine will change and eventually spoil with too much air. Go ahead and top up a nice decanter with the top-selling American whiskey and share it with special friends and guests.
Two important things to remember when shopping for a decanter is to look at the quality of the stopper and the material used to produce the decanter. While the taste won’t change, liquor can evaporate when not properly sealed. Purchasing a decanter with a tightly sealed stopper is crucial to maintain spirits in a decanter. Second, crystal decanters contain lead, so if you plan to store whiskey in the decanter, be sure to get a glass or lead-free decanter.
