Original Recipe for Jack Daniel's Whiskey Found in Old Welsh Book of Home Remedies

The origins of the divine whiskey from Lynchburg, Tennessee are a mystery. But a Briton named Mark Evans thinks that he may have found the original recipe for it in an old book passed down in his family:

It was written in 1853 by his great-great grandmother who was called Daniels and was a local herbalist in Llanelli, South Wales.

Her brother-in-law left the Welsh town at about the same time to move to Lynchburg Tennessee where the Jack Daniel's distillery was opened three years later.

And the Jack Daniel's website states the founder of the distillery was from Wales. [...]

The history of Jack Daniel's is a mystery because the distillery's early records were destroyed in a courthouse fire

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