May 19 Meeting Program

Title: The Science Involved with Whiskey Making

Subtitle: The Jack Daniel’s Distillery Tour where chemistry lessons are inserted along the way.

The Muckenthaler [Fullerton’s cultural center] sponsored a tour of Nashville Tennessee which included a tour of the Jack Daniels distillery. Several months later there was a reunion for which Walter put together a talk which was inspired by his brother to be technical. Walter’s brother is a retired chemical engineer and noticed three of the 6 most important chemical reactions in history are involved with whiskey making. There’s over a hundred slides but they go by quickly. It has a few chemical looking diagrams, but mostly people and places.
