Here's an article I ran across. Jack Daniels, representing the genteel whiskey industry!

Great article thanks for posting. I am as pessimistic as anyone when it comes to how a large corporation treats people. It is refreshing to see them not come down with a sledge hammer response as they were very much entitled to do.

Before I read it I was hoping it was going to be addressed to all the micro-distilleries selling inferior quality spirits and calling it whiskey. I guess I'll have to draft my own letter for them. :cool:

Bravo, Old No. 7, Bravo! I tip my hat to Gentleman Jack.

And both the book and the whiskey get positive publicity every time this story is shared. Well played.

I've seen t-shirts done up in the basic design also, most notably advertising the band Lynard Skynard. I wonder if they ever got a letter from JD!

That would be spelled Lynyrd Skynyrd. Sorry.... I had to. :grin:
