A previous post states that it is a dry state, but only the county is dry. And you can buy bottles of Jack Daniel's as a collectors item or wildlife donation.

Totally worth visiting. Avoid coming on a Sunday. It's a dry state and they will not sell you jack. Also law prohibits them from giving free samples. Having said that, go visit. Know how Mr. Daniel died.

We took the Jack Daniel's Distillery Tour and kicked the same safe that killed Jack Daniels himself!

Jack Daniel's Distillery Tour - Safe That Killed Daniel

It was odd to see the bark on all of the trees is covered with a black fungus due to the distillery, just what the old revenuers looked for when searching for illegal stills back in the day. Enjoyed the whiff of pure alcohol before it drips through the charcoal vats. Enjoyed this tour!
