Social Events

Two very unique opportunities have been scheduled for the attendees of the 2018 Medicinal Chemistry Symposium to explore the best Nashville has to offer. Included in the registration is the chance to either tour the Jack Daniel’s Distillery or the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Find the details of each experience below and make your choice on the registration page.

Jack Daniel’s Distillery Tour and Tasting:

Located south of Nashville in the hills of Tennessee, Lynchburg is home to the famous Tennessee whiskey produced by the Jack Daniel’s Distillery. Spend the afternoon with good whiskey and a good story enjoying the Flight of Jack tour. This tour includes a walk through Mr. Jack’s distillery and the old-time Tennessee whiskey-making process guided by a seasoned storyteller. The 90 minute tour concludes at the historic Barrel House with a tasting of five of the most popular labels.

Limited to 160 registrants; shuttle service WILL be provided.

Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum:

Located a block away from the honkey-tonks of Broadway, known as the “Smithsonian of country music,” the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum offers a look into the history and traditions of country music. The Stories Behind the Songs experience will be an intimate session with one of Nashville’s hit-making songwriters. This will be a rare opportunity to discover the story behind the music and hear how songs are created from concept to hit.

Afterwards, take a self-guided tour through the museum to see artifacts, photographs, vintage video and interactive displays about the origins, traditions, stories and voices of country music.

Shuttle service will NOT be provided (museum is within walking distance from Sheraton).
