Mr Jack Daniel Christmas 1879

Unread postby a l a b a m a » Wed Oct 24, 2012 12:57 am

Hello, to all. I am writing a research paper on the life of Jack Daniel, founder of Jack Daniel's Whiskey, and I came across an 1879 advertisement for Christmas dinner at the Maxwell House Hotel in Nashville, TN. In part, the ad reads "Your host for the evening, Jack Daniel, Esquire". I haven't been able to find any newspaper accounts of the event, and I was hoping someone may know if Jack Daniel was the host of the Maxwell House Christmas dinner in 1879. I know around 1907 Jack Daniel's nephew struck a deal with the hotel bar to sell Jack Daniel's Whiskey from a bottle made especially for the hotel, but I haven't found any dealings with the hotel prior to that date. Any insight you may have on this topic would be greatly appreciated.
