The Wharf Announces Partnership with Jack Daniel's and the Washington Capitals

WASHINGTON, D.C. (November 28, 2022)

Arlington, Va. – The Washington Capitals and Jack Daniel's announced today a second Jack Daniel’s Personal Selection Capitals Barrel featuring Tennessee whiskey from barrels selected by Capitals alumnus Alan May, as well as programming at The Wharf surrounding the 2022 holiday season.. 

Fans in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., will have the opportunity to purchase special Jack Daniel’s Capitals bottles featuring whiskey from four barrels beginning this November. Fans are encouraged to check with their local retail stores on availability. 

This summer, May participated in a whiskey selection experience with distillers from Jack Daniel’s in Washington, D.C., to select barrels available to Capitals fans. The Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Collection Program is a highly selective process, with only one out of every 100 barrels produced deemed worthy of the distinction by the team of whiskey makers at Jack Daniel’s. The barrels mature in the highest reaches of Jack Daniel’s barrel houses, where extreme temperature variations dramatically increase the interplay between wood and whiskey. The result is a collection of bold, robust flavors and notes of toasted oak and vanilla that are unique to each individual barrel.

This year’s selection marks the second time Jack Daniel’s and the Capitals have collaborated on a barrel pick. In Nov. 2021, Jack Daniel’s and the Capitals unveiled their first highly successful single barrel personal collection featuring four barrels selected by May during a visit to the Jack Daniel Distillery in Lynchburg, TN. 

In addition, the Capitals and Jack Daniel’s announced holiday programming at The Wharf in Washington, D.C., featuring a Jack Daniel’s Barrel Tree.

From Nov. 25-Dec. 31, a Jack Daniel's Barrel Tree will be on display at The Wharf on Market Pier. Jack Daniel's will host a special Jack Daniel's Experience at the Barrel Tree during The District's Holiday Boat Parade on Dec. 3, taking place from 6-9 p.m.

Throughout the holiday programming, Jack Daniel's will be fundraising for Operation Ride Home, a program that brings junior military members home for the holidays. This year, barrels from the Jack Daniel’s Barrel Trees will be sold for purchase, with all proceeds going to Operation Ride Home. Additional details on the program and how to purchase a barrel can be found at

Jack Daniel's will also donate $1, up to $5,000, to Operation Ride Home for every Jack Daniel’s drink sold as part of the Jack Daniel's Holiday Special, offered at the following locations: Boardwalk Bar & Arcade, Brighton SW1Hank's Oyster BarKirwan's on The WharfLupo MarinoMoon RabbitPearl Street WarehouseWhiskey CharlieH BarCanopy Central, The AnthemOfficinaThe GrillCantina BambinaKaliwaRappahannock Oyster Bar, Union Stage, and 12 Stories.
