Todays paper said the parent company of Jack Daniels distillery, will now invest $100 million in Lynchburg, to make sure that no one will have to worry, that there might be a shortage of Jack Daniels whiskey. No doubt but that, $100 million will bring more prosperity to this little town and county in middle Tennessee and no doubt but what they have carefully studied market conditions. Should we celebrate or figure that more whiskey means more trouble?

That sounds good if it helps the economy. More whiskey means more trouble? Not sure what you mean by that. If not Jack Daniels someone else will make whiskey if there is a demand.

Unless you want to go back to the prohibition years...then the Mafia/organized crime will get back into the alcohol business.

Celebrate! A lot of their whiskey is sold in other countries. That is good for the US trade deficit.

I went on a tour of the distillery there in 1970 and will never forget the smell of those barrels. From the harvesting of the wood, burning for the charcoal and throughout the process it's pure craftsmanship. Whether you drink or not this is something to be proud of.

JD has just 3% of whiskey market. The top rum producer has around 10%. Plenty of ability to grow.

Good News. Jack Daniels is now famous in countries like China and India. Hopefully we will be able to export more of it to them and earn money.

Maybe 100 million spent will save millions annually and give them a higher production potential.......it is an old factory

In this same general area, Nissan is building a plant to make motors. This too is a major investment. What is surprising is that many of the motors will be built for Volkswagen, which now has a plant about 70 miles away. When Japan had it's big tsunami, two years ago and much of Honda's production was shut it also held up delivery of many cars at VW in Chattanooga. So nowadays one never knows where the parts in ones car comes from. So much for German engineering.
