The Jack Daniel’s Barrel Tree

The Jack Daniel’s Barrel Tree is a tradition that started ten years ago at the Jack Daniel Distillery. Now with a Barrel Tree at Cherry Street Pier, they have been selling barrels from the Barrel Tree via QR code, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting Jack Daniel’s Operation Ride Home. Even if the Barrels are sold out, you still have the opportunity to donate to the program and help bring our military home for the holidays.  And of course, visit the Barrel Tree at Pier, through Sunday, January 8, 2023.

Our Story

Cherry Street Pier is a 65,000 square foot warehouse and former shipping pier which was a vibrant part of Philadelphia’s shipping industry. Originally built in 1919 as Shipping Pier 9, it has been carefully repurposed to preserve and celebrate its historic value including the original railroad tracks, steel trussed roof, and masonry headhouses.
