Sad day today R.I.P. Jimmy.
Jimmy Bedford the man responsible for the taste and quality of Jack Daniel's for the last 40 years has died.
He retired just a few months ago, after spending 40 years working at the Jack Daniel Distillery at the tiny Tennessee town of Lynchburg
As the Jack Daniels brand's sixth master distiller, Bedford was responsible for making the world-famous whiskey . Tonight I will have to observe a solemn toast and bid his memory farewell for years of some of the best libations made.
Some drank straight and some with various mixers. Thankfully he had trained a new distiller and bestowed his profound wisdom on him.
