First Rye Whiskey To Join Jack Daniel's Bottled-in-Bond Permanent Lineup



Jack Daniel's has unveiled a new permanent addition to its Bottled-in-Bond series of whiskey - the Jack Daniel's Bonded Rye.

But first, a refresher of what what 'bottled-in-bond' means for those new to the term that dates back to 1897: it's a US Federal government-approved guarantee that the bourbon is from a single distillery, from one distilling season, has been aged for at least four years, and is bottled at 100 proof (or 50% alcohol by volume).

This means that the Jack Daniel's Bonded Rye is a Tennessee Rye Whiskey bottled at 100 proof (50% ABV), is made within a single distillery, and is at least four years of age.  The Bonded Rye has a mash bill of 70% rye, 18% corn and 12% malted barley. After distillation, the whiskey is still "charcoal mellowed" (which seems to mean filtering) before being matured in virgin American white oak barrels.

Its quaint packaging is inspired by the original design of the 1895 Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey bottle.

The inaugural Jack Daniel's Bonded Rye was distilled in 2016, and bottled at around 7 years old.  

According to official tasting notes, it opens with notes of dried fruit followed by lingering hints of toffee, imparting a bold, complex, and balanced taste with a rye spice finish.

If you are based in the US, Jack Daniel’s Bonded Rye will be available on Reserve Bar, and across US retailers for a suggested retail price of US$31.99.
