“To Bond’s unspeakable relief, they put up that night at the smartest hotel in Kyoto, the Miyako. The comfortable bed, air-conditioning and Western-style lavatory on which one could actually sit were out of this world. Better still, Tiger said that unfortunately he had to dine with the Chief of Police of the prefecture and Bond ordered a pint of Jack Daniels and a double portion of eggs Benedict to be brought up to his room. Then, from the belated sense of duty, he watched “The Seven Detectives”, a famous Japanese television series, failed to spot the villain, and went to bed and slept for twelve hours.”

Ian Fleming: “You Only Live Twice” (1964)

The dish was first popularized in New York City. Many variations on the basic recipe are served.

It is produced in Lynchburg, Tennessee, by the Jack Daniel Distillery, which has been owned by the Brown-Forman Corporation since 1956.
