Hennessy 44 Commemorates Inauguration of 44th President

Obama is sworn in as the 44th President of the US.   What else makes the news?

At precisely the time the 44th President of the United States took the oath of office, the Jack Daniels Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee (pop. 361) vowed to set aside a barrel of Tennessee Whiskey to mark this moment in history.  This special barrel will become the “Presidential Barrel” in President Obama’s honor.  Once this “Presidential Barrel” has completed the aging process, it will be bottled, sold and proceeds will go to benefit various charities.
