"After researching Wales, I was surprised to discover that Jack Daniels was originally invented in Wales! And here I thought that it was Southern (American) alcoholic beverage.....Geeze.
THE STORY: Businessman Mark Evans, 54, was researching his family history when he discovered the recipe in a book of herbal remedies. It was written in 1853 by his great-great grandmother who was called Daniels and was a local herbalist in Llanelli, South Wales.
Her brother-in-law left the Welsh town at about the same time to move to Lynchburg Tennessee where the Jack Daniel's distillery was opened three years later.
And the Jack Daniel's website states the founder of the distillery was from Wales.
Mr Evans says the ingredients in his great-great grandmother's recipe match what goes into the best selling whiskey in the world. Now that's some learnin!"
Add all of the ingredients to a food mixer with a paddle attachment and mix well for 1-2 minutes until all of the ingredients are incorporated. Alternatively, use a mixing bowl and wooden spatula.
Turn out onto a sheet of plastic wrap and spread out to make a 1/4 inch thick layer. Wrap tightly into a block. Alternatively roll tightly in plastic wrap to form a cylindrical shape and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or until firm.
Cut a 1 1/4 in square or small cylinder of the whisky butter and add to a mug. Pour in 1 2/3 fl oz of whisky, then top up with hot water and stir to incorporate.

Butter. Yes, butter. Butter is better. For sure. Forever Mama, who needs the cocktail when you have the Whiskey butter? LOL... Can you tell I liked this? That butter is fantastic, and the cocktail is dreamy. Since I don't like my whiskey watered down so much, I heated it first by putting a glass measuring cup inside a pan of boiling water for a few moments. Then added the hot water and butter. During the prep, I put the butter into a small container instead of shaping into a log, so I could just spoon it out. I did use Golden Syrup instead of agave (don't like agave syrup) and added a bit more cloves and allspice (personal taste!) to give the spice butter a bit more of a flavor kick. This is a KEEPER!
