Frank Sinatra Collectable Whiskey
Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Century is a one-time, extremely limited run – only 100 barrels of the new marque were created in proprietary “Sinatra” barrels that undergo a special grooving process only done at the Jack Daniel’s cooperage. The relationship between Frank Sinatra and Jack Daniel’s is legendary, special and authentic and one that still holds strong to this day. First recommended by friend Jackie Gleason, the Tennessee Whiskey quickly became Sinatra’s signature drink. During performances, he kept a glass of Jack Daniel’s on a nearby stool on stage. Master distiller Jeff Arnett worked hand-in-hand with the Sinatra family to taste and select the perfect blend, resulting in a big character whisky at 100-proof, and the only one of its kind to ever be made. Each exclusive bottle is enclosed in a luxury gift box and will also offer a selection of previously unreleased Sinatra tracks, entitled “Sinatra Live at the Sands in 1966,” to accompany the specially designed Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Century bottle.
