Mr. Jack was a lifelong bachelor but carried the repute of being quite the “ladies man”. At least twelve or more bereaved women claimed to be the “Belle” after his death. That is why in this chess set, The Belle of Lincoln Decanter, as Jack Daniel’s Whiskey was first known, serves as queen. Corn, the primary grain used when making Jack Daniel’s whiskey takes part as Bishop. He kicked a safe in frustration at the age of 61, and broke a bone in his foot, which then became gangrenous and eventually killed him. This famed safe, kicked by Jack and leading to his untimely death, is Knight. Tennessee whiskey is filtered with the use of sugar maple charcoal in large wooden vats before proceeding to aging.
