The original recipe for JD has been found in a dusty old book in Wales
And the recipe dates back to 1853 which pre-dates JD by 13 years which opened in 1866
Mark evans claims that his Great Great Grandmother invented it




The 47-year-old found a recipe, in Welsh, in a book of herbal remedies that was written by Marged Daniel’s in 1853 — 13 years before Jack Daniel’s launched.





Mr Evans says the ingredients in his great-great grandmother's recipe match what goes into the best selling whiskey in the world.


I always knew something that tastes this good could not have been invented in America

Just shows that "True" American Whiskey is the One and Only Mr. Jim Beam.

How does English Sour Mash sound? uhhh, not American.

Did the recipe say to make sure to go to Tennessee and find Cave Creek, the water source essential for making JD?

I doubt it.

Jack could've had a completely different taste if it wasn't made from Cave Creek water.

Water from the Tames or Cave Creek?

You know thats why the British have such bad teeth. Drinking the Tames for Generations....

Well maybe but it was invented in Wales




A spokesman for the company said: 'We know our founder was from Wales - we would love to see the book and the recipe.'

well im not a JD guy. I am not a fan of whiskey.
I am a fan of Bourbon.

All bourbons are whiskeys but not all whiskeys are bourbons.
Bourbon has to to be aged longer, better quality barrels than JD whiskey uses and higher purity of water. Theres lots more regulations regarding the quality of bourbon than there is for whiskey.

So its the Jim Beam small batches for me. Knob Creek; Bakers; Bookers; and Basel Hayden.
working for Jim Beam racing might have made me alittle partial but hey....I saw the light and Jim Beam was at the end of it.
I actual am aquaintences with Fred Noe the 7th generation of Beam. I have stayed at their guest house and tried to drink him under the table at a bar in North Carolina

If your looking for the real deal. Go for a bottle of Bookers, its uncut, unfitered, straight out of the barrel. i recomend pouring it right over ice and enjoy. becareful its usually around 127 proof!!

Jim Beam was currency in the 1700's.

End the Fed & go back to Bourbon Bucks!

Jack Daniels is whiskey. Whiskey comes from Ireland and Scotland, traditionally, and most recipes are, more or less, the same.

So its hardly a stretch to say a similar recipe was found in the UK.

Who the heck cares who invented it anyway. I'm glad it's here.

I watched how they make it on History. Full hour episode. Very fascinating how they drip it through ashes.

I call bull chit on this.

First of all, as someone else mentioned, how would they even know it's the same recipe? As far as I know the recipe for Jack is SECRET, meaning there is no way to compare to two, so saying it's the same recipe is impossible to determine.

Second of all, even if it is the same recipe, if you like Jack Daniels, then you like an American whiskey. The recipe is only one part of the flavor, the water used to make it has a huge influence. Jack Daniels would NOT be Jack Daniels unless it was made right where it is now, in America.

Another thing, why would Europeans make alcohol from Corn? Corn is not native to Europe, it's native to the Americas. Wheat, barley, rye and oats are all far, far more common in the UK in across Europe in general as far as alcohol production is concerned, so why would they use Corn?

It makes a lot more sense, on the other hand, for someone living in the Americas to use corn as a base for their alcohol. Considering the mashbill for Jack is 80% CORN, it would seem silly for someone in Europe to have come up with the recipe.
