Brown-Forman has announced the US wide release of Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Rye. The brand’s third offering in its Single Barrel Collection.

Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Rye (47% ABV) has been crafted using a unique mash bill of 70% rye, 18% corn and 12% malted barley, which is said to give the whisky a clean, sweet tone at the tip of the tongue with a more distinct and slightly shorter finish than the brands other Single Barrel bottlings.

Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Rye, marks the first time consumers can experience a fully matured rye product from Jack Daniel’s and completes the distillery’s journey into rye whiskies, following the limited release batches of Rested Rye in 2014 and Unaged Rye in 2012.

Commenting on the launch, Jeff Arnett, Jack Daniel’s Master Distiller, said: “Rye was one of the earliest forms of American whiskey and as the Master Distiller at Jack Daniel’s, I’m proud to honour that history with the release of Single Barrel Rye. There is a remerging trend of rye whiskeys and we are excited to be able to give friends of Jack Daniel’s a chance to experience it. You never want to over-barrel a rye whiskey so it was important for us to stay true to the style with grain forward character rather than barrel character while still allowing our barrels to interplay with the whiskey. I’m confident that everyone will be as impressed as I am with the taste and character of this bold new rye offering.”

Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Rye will be available across the US later this month for a RRP of $49.99.
