Jack Daniels Hi-ball

7 Oct

The American Jack Daniels brand whiskey is partnered with the Japanese brand Suntory and is available for purchase in almost any supermarket, convenience store or liquor store in Japan.

And now Jack Daniels Whiskey has begun selling canned High-ball cocktails.

If you buy a canned Jack Daniels High-ball by 2011 November 30, it will come with two 6-digit codes that can be used to enter a drawing for prizes via the “Jack Daniels Japan” website.

You can enter the drawing by 5:00PM (Japan time) on 2011 November 30.

300 people will win a set of two “Jack Daniels High-ball drinking glasses” and another 300 people will win a set of two “Jack Daniels mugs”.

Personally, I’d choose the mugs.  I like Jack Daniels and I like “High-balls”…so,  I may just buy a few cans of this drink and enter the drawing.

The sets of Jack Daniels glasses and mugs.

    So how prestigious is Jack Daniel’s in Japan? I have heard anecdotally that you can do no wrong in presenting one to your host or colleague and that it will go a long way toward sealing a deal or friendship.

      It’s not that Jack Daniel’s Whiskey is “prestigious”… it can easily be bought even in convenience stores here but Japan has a “gift-giving” culture and a bottle of J.D. could be a good gift to give in many instances … particularly if you’re both men – – even better if you’re an American since Jack Daniel’s is an American whiskey.

    I’ve always wondered if the legendary Charlie Daniels has any family tree roots to the Jack Daniels company. I suppose it would be easy to find out on the world wide web.

    All the liquor stores here in Pennsylvania are “state run” and owned. You absolutely could not buy any wine or liquor in a grocery or convenience store here. We have separate beer marts that sell “only beer”… these are privately owned. Currently, our state legislature is trying to get rid of the states “ownership” of wine and spirit shops.

    This looks like a very cool promotion indeed. I’m with you… I’d rather have them mugs! 🙂

      >Charlie Daniels has any family tree roots to…Jack Daniels

      I don’t know. But I doubt it…otherwise it would probably already be public knowledge.

      >You absolutely could not buy any wine or liquor in a grocery or convenience store here.

      Well, that’s one of the points that make me feel that Tokyo is the best city in the world…it’s so convenient here.

      > I’d rather have them mugs!

      Yeah. They look cool. I’d like to use one as my coffee cup at work.

    What a strange pair…I’ve mention on your site that during my first tour in Japan (1951/1953) that there were only two whiskeys available: Oceans and Suntory, neither of which was palatable to the GIs. On my second tour in Japan (1975-1976) I found Sundory to be as fine a whiskey as could be found anywhere. It was really a “scotch” with out that designated. Suntory Black was/is my favorite. I don’t drink Bourbon, but I recognize Jack Daniels as the best available.

      >What a strange pair…

      You mean “Suntory” and “Jack Daniels”? I don’t think it’s so strange…they both make whiskey.

      Did you know that Japan’s “Kirin Beer” is partnered with America’s “Budweiser Beer” to sell their beer in the other’s country?

      > I don’t drink Bourbon

      Really? I think bourbon whiskey is nice…but beer is best! 😉
