This is a special edition of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whisky that belongs to the Master Distiller series dedicated to honour each of the seven Master Distillers at Jack Daniel's who have supervised the making of whiskey during its 150 years of existence. Number four was released in 2015 and it is dedicated to Jess Gamble, who held the position for just two years.
Jessie C. “Jess” Gamble was the first head distiller to come from outside Jack’s family. Also, he wasn’t born in Lynchburg and didn’t drink alcohol.

In 1964 Lem Trolley, third Master Distiller, was arrested and Jess Gamble was handed over his position in appreciation for his commitment. He served as Master Distiller for just two years, as he retired on June 1, 1966.
