History

The Lincoln County Process, used in the distillation of Tennessee whiskey, is named for this county, as Jack Daniel's distillery was originally located here. However, a subsequent redrawing of county lines resulted in the establishment of adjacent Moore County, where it is now located, so no current Lincoln County business uses its namesake process.
