Now in the second year of their multi-year partnership, both Jack Daniel’s and the NBA continue to work together on blending two of America’s revered past times – basketball and whiskey. The NBA partnership is the largest in Jack Daniel’s history and officially kicked off during NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans last year, offering fans a chance to enjoy live entertainment, meet the Jack Daniel’s Assistant Master Distiller, experience the spirit of Lynchburg Tennessee and much more!

This year, the brand is bringing the spirit of Lynchburg to Los Angeles during the 2018 All-Star Weekend! Jack Daniel’s will once again host several activations throughout the week including both Jack Daniel’s House No. 7 and the Lynchburg General Store (some additional details below). Throughout this year, Jack Daniel’s will work with the NBA to create custom marketing and advertising campaigns, as well as offer fans various ways to get closer to both the Jack Daniel’s Brand and extensions of the NBA. The overall partnership extends to the WNBA, as well as USA Basketball with Jack Daniel’s also having visibility with the Atlanta Hawks, Denver Nuggets, Los Angeles Clippers, Oklahoma City Thunder.
