Tennessee isn’t just about enjoying fine sippin’ whiskey, it’s also about BBQ food and live music. Mr Jack knew this way back in the 1860s and not much has changed, which is why Jack Daniel’s are putting on a southern spread like no other by bringing a taste of Tennessee to London at ‘The Meeting Place’ this September.
You probably don’t know this but the word Tennessee is believed to be derived from the old Yuchi Indian word, ‘Tana-see’, which translates to ‘The Meeting Place’. This one-off gathering in an East London location by the docks will bring 200 Londoners together to experience some famous southern hospitality and enjoy drinks, food and music inspired by Tennessee.
Mr Jasper Newton ‘Jack’ Daniel registered his distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee in 1866 next to a cool, cave spring water at ‘the hollow’ which just happens to be perfect for making whiskey, and the reason every drop still comes from the same place today. The folks at Jack Daniel’s think that is something worth celebrating which is why they are inviting their friends to find their taste of Tennessee here in the UK.
Inspired by the bustling bars and Honky Tonks of Jack’s home state, The Meeting Place will partner with some of the finest joints in London to bring together some of the best drinks, music and food in the capital.
The renowned London Cocktail Club will be mixing up fine whiskey cocktails, while Zelman Meats will be firing up the grill to treat friends of Jack to mouthwatering cuts of meat. The team from East London hotspot Mother Clucker will also be serving up southern style chicken.
No Tennessee gathering is complete without live music, and there will be a quality line up to match the food and whiskey cocktails. Throughout the night musicians will play Tennessee inspired tunes to entertain those in attendance.
For the chance to join Jack at The Meeting Place, head on down to either London Cocktail Club, Zelman Meats or Mother Clucker, purchase a Jack Daniel’s drink and you’ll be handed a Jack Daniel’s postcard to fill out and post into a Tennessee style post mailbox.
