The slave who taught Jack Daniels how to make whiskey
“After 150 years, Jack Daniels has finally revealed that a slave was behind the world-famous recipe of America's most popular whisky. Until now, the story told was that a white moonshine distiller named Dan Call had taught his young apprentice, Jasper Newton 'Jack' Daniel, how to run his Tennessee distillery. But it appears that the brand is finally ready to embrace its controversial history after it revealed it was not Dan Call, but one of Call's slaves named Nearis Green who had passed on his distilling experience to Daniel.
