No, this unusual glass is not a sand timer or egg cup. The most popular story of its origin comes from the Jack Daniel Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee. There, a traveling salesman wagered with Mr. Jack Daniel that he could make whiskey stand on water. Jack Daniel accepted the challenge and offered a bottle of his prized Tennessee whiskey if the salesman could prove his point. The salesman then displayed this unusual glass, filled the bottom chamber with water and the top with whiskey and won the bet. Jack Daniel was so impressed that he bought the glass and named it the "chaser jigger."
For best results, fill the bottom chamber and the narrow neck of the glass with clear water. Then, tilt the glass slightly to avoid pouring the whiskey directly over the narrow neck. Pour the whiskey slowly into the top chamber.
Jack Daniel's reminds you to drink responsibly.
