Jack Daniel’s Rye & Rye is a Michigan campaign to celebrate RYE as the main ingredient in the form of Jack Daniel’s Rye or Rye Breads for Cocktails and Burgers/Sandwiches.

Local bartenders and Chefs were invited to form teams and work together to create their signature recipes celebrating the Rye flavors, “bold and balanced, smooth, yet spicy and complex.”

Jack Daniel's Tennessee Rye 750ml Bottle

Introducing rye whiskey made Jack’s way. Crafted with our 70-percent rye grain bill, natural spring water from our own Cave Spring Hollow, and Jack’s time-honored charcoal mellowing process, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Rye is a whiskey that could only come from Lynchburg, Tennessee. Master Distiller Jeff Arnett and the whiskey makers of the Jack Daniel Distillery have created a unique rye that’s undeniably spicy and complex yet sippin’ smooth. It might be one of our first new recipes in over 150-years, but if you know Jack, you’ll know Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Rye.
