During its 150 year history, Jack Daniel's has won many gold medals around the world.  Its success can be attributed to the famous 'Old No.7' brand being made the same way it has always been - with the finest corn, rye, and barley malt; pure, iron-free water from the Cave Spring in the Distillery hollow; being mellowed through 10 feet of sugar maple charcoal, and aged to mature in hand-crafted charred oak barrels. It is this unique way of making whiskey that makes Jack Daniel's what it is - a smooth sipping Tennessee spirit and not a bourbon.

On your Valentine's Day night date, you're free to enjoy Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey on the rocks or in cocktail recipes such as Jack & Cola or an Old Fashioned.

Don Papa Rum 10yo

If you’re looking to treat yourself this Valentine’s Day, you should not skip this highly aromatic drink from the Philippines. Don Papa 10 is a super-premium, small-batch rum from Negros Occidental.

Don Papa 10-year old has a dark amber color and a delicate tingle in the mouth, with robust flavors of dried fruits and chocolate, and a hint of oak.
