Jack Daniel (1846-1911)
“One last drink please”

Jack Daniel was an American distiller and the founder of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee whiskey distillery. He never married or had any children and was close with his favorite nephew, Lem Motlow. In 1907, due to failing health, Daniel gave the distillery to Motlow, who then passed it down to his children, Robert, Reagor, Dan, Connor, and Mary. Jack Daniel died from blood poisoning on October 10, 1911, in Lynchburg, Tennessee. The infection that killed him started in his big toe, which he injured after kicking a safe. His final words were recorded on the day of his death and fittingly they were “one last drink, please.” This incident was the subject of a marketing poster used on the London Underground transit system in January 2006. Jack Daniel’s brand of Tennessee whiskey is among the world’s best-selling liquors and is known for its square bottles and black label.
