Jack Daniel's, distilled in the great state of Tennessee, is one of the most popular American whiskey manufacturers on the market. Fun Fact: the Jack Daniel's distillery is actually located in a dry county, so the product is not available in stores in the region. Wild Turkey is another delicious American whiskey.
