Distillery introduces Jack Daniel’s Winter Jack Tennessee Cider (Winter Jack), a new cider flavor experience that’s best served warm when the temperature outside starts to drop. Winter Jack, launching this fall and available in limited markets throughout the U.S., is crafted with world-renowned Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey. The whiskey is mingled with a seasonal blend of apple cider liqueur with holiday spices.
“Winter Jack brings together two complementary tastes in a new way,” said Jack Daniel’s Master Distiller Jeff Arnett. “The quality and character of Winter Jack is in keeping with the Jack Daniel’s tradition. We think our friends will enjoy the spiced warmth of this new flavor experience that is crafted with our Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey as its foundation.”Arnett noted that the flavor characteristics of warm apple cider spices and Jack Daniel’s create a uniquely smooth character. Hints of apple, clove, cinnamon and orange along with the toasted oak and subtle vanilla notes of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey make this product unlike any other offering in the flavored category, according to Arnett.
