Episode 5 : A Family Tradition with Assistant Master Distiller Chris Fletcher


Host Lucas Hendrickson sits down for a conversation with Jack Daniel’s Assistant Master Distiller Chris Fletcher on the latest episode of Around the Barrel.


Chris is a native of Lynchburg and started his career as a tour guide at the Jack Daniel Distillery before taking a role in quality control for Jack Daniel’s at the Brown-Forman Corporation in Louisville. He returned to Lynchburg in 2014, bringing a wealth of experience to his role as assistant master distiller. Chris is the grandson of Frank Bobo, the distillery’s master distiller from 1966-89, so making Jack Daniel’s Tennessee sipping whiskey comes naturally to him.
