Enjoy a taste of Tennessee this National Chilli Day

Bring a taste of Tennessee to your dinner table this National Chilli Day with a slow cooked brisket chilli from Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey.

Mr Jack was known to use his whiskey to bring the people of Lynchburg together; a tradition which is as true today as it was when he founded his distillery over 150 years ago. So, this National Chilli Day why not raise a glass to Mr Jack and treat yourself to a taste of Tennessee with friends?

The smokey, spicy flavours of the Brisket and Jack Chilli complement the smooth caramel notes of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, making it the ideal dish to enjoy alongside a Jack & Cola.

The brisket is slow cooked, which means it’s a perfect dish to prepare the day before you host, leaving you more time to catch up with your friends over a Jack & Cola on the night.
