A Tree That Only Jack Daniels Can Build

Are you someone that needs to have the perfect tree? Maybe you are the one who wants a unique one. Either way you will get a kick out of the tree that Jack Daniel’s made. It’s a tree that takes shape out of 140 whiskey barrels.

Yet Jack Daniel’s feels that it’s not what’s under the tree that matters, but who is around it. Here are some cool facts on the tree. It is made out of 140 used American White Oak barrels. The barrels weigh approximately 115 pounds each. When full, the barrels weigh approximately 550 pounds. Each barrel holds 53.3 gallons of Tennessee Whiskey.

As a Tennessee Whiskey, Jack Daniel’s only uses its barrels one time for maturation. The barrels are so important to Jack Daniel’s that it is the only major distillery to own its own cooperage. The barrel is responsible for all the color of Jack Daniel’s and more than half its flavor. The barrel tree took approximately one week to construct and was lit at a special Lynchburg holiday celebration on Saturday, December 5th.

Scottie Pippen Gives An Assist To M&M’s On Halloween‏

The new M&M’S® Crispy Milk Chocolate Candies was available for trick-or-treaters this Halloween – but only at one house in the entire country, after being hand-delivered by Scottie Pippen.

M&M’S Crispy has been gone for 10 years, and fans have lobbied so hard for its return we’re bringing it back. M&M’s Crispy officially hits stores in January, but a Chicago fan named Olivia asked through the M&M’S® Brand Facebook page: “Why not make M&M’S® Crispy available at Halloween?”

The brand responded by teaming up with Chicago basketball legend Scottie Pippen to surprise Olivia with a batch of her favorite candy that she could pass out to trick-or-treaters, making hers the only house in the country with M&M’S® Crispy this Halloween.
