Belle of Lincoln
ONE OF THE EARLIEST NAMES UNDER WHICH JACK DANIEL SOLD HIS WHISKEY
Before 1871, the areas comprising Lynchburg and portions of Moore County, Tennessee were part of larger county called Lincoln.
The “Belle of Lincoln” was one of the earliest names under which Jack Daniel sold his whiskey. While Mr. Jack remained a lifelong bachelor, he did have a few women in his life that could have been the “Belle.”
After his death, dozens of bereaved women claimed to be the “Belle.” But who he named his whiskey after is another mystery that Jack took with him to the grave.
While none of the original “Belle” decanters are known to exist, this 1.75L reproduction, released in 1979, is based on surviving descriptions. A 1.5L version was also produced for international markets.
