White oak is one of the most popular Tennessee hardwood species. Its variety of color and tight, sound knots give character. It is harvested from the Highland Rim Region of Tennessee, which produces trees with compact growth rings—perfect for Jack Daniel’s whisky aging barrels and wine kegs. This wood, which has cradled some of the world’s finest spirits and wines, will make a lovely and long-lasting addition to your home.
