Those smart enough to “Crack Jack’s Safe” in the latest national Jack Daniel’s promotion can end up with $100,000 in silver dollars locked inside. For the third year, Brown-Forman Beverages Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey is promoting the brand with a sweepstakes that will send 34 finalists to Lynchburg, TN, to try their hand at winning the grand prize. The promotion recalls the morning in 1905 when Jack Daniel’s forgot the combination to his office safe and kicked it in frustration. This resulted in a broken toe, and that injury eventually led to an infection that killed him. Retail merchandising materials include case cards with sweepstakes tear pads, as well as a permanent wooden replica of Jack’s safe and program banners.
