The JD Birthday Set is in October

The Birthday JD Set is the culmination of a month of celebrations that take place throughout September to mark Jack Daniel's birthday. (Yes, the whiskey maker.)

After a fire at the local county courthouse no-one's real sure of the exact date Daniel was born. All that's known is it was sometime in September 1850 - so at Jack Daniel's they celebrate on all 30 days to honour the man who created the Tennessee whiskey, culminating in an almighty gig of rock royalty.
