Original recipe for Jack Daniel's found in Welsh book of herbal remedies

Source: The Telegraph

The original recipe for legendary American whiskey Jack Daniel's has been discovered in a book of herbal remedies in Wales, it has been claimed.

Businessman Mark Evans, 54, was researching his family history when he discovered the recipe in a book of herbal remedies.

It was written in 1853 by his great-great grandmother who was called Daniels and was a local herbalist in Llanelli, South Wales.

Her brother-in-law left the Welsh town at about the same time to move to Lynchburg Tennessee where the Jack Daniel's distillery was opened three years later.

14. This has all kinds of cool links to other most interesting stories, too

Like the purported discovery of the original Coca-Cola recipe, the purported discovery of the original Worcestershire sauce, and one I really like:
