There is a saying that in Lynchburg Tennessee everyone working at the Jack Daniels distillery, gets a bottle of Jack Daniels on the first Friday of every month as a thank you for all the work they put into the brand. This concept is so highly admired that Jack Daniels have decided to bring something similar to the UK.Say hello to Jack Friday’s in the UK, the new place where every lover of the famous Tennessee whiskey on Friday nights throughout September. Team Maketh went down on the initial launch night at the Old Street Records bar in London. To really give you something to get your skates on for, the first 20 cool people to walk through the doors for Jack Friday will automatically each receive a complimentary cocktail as a sign of respect for showing up prompt to party. A nice way to kick off what is bound to be a great in evening with the entrants needing to only get their hashtag on in return, pretty fair deal if you ask me.
