The Diageo owned Cascade Hollow Distilling Co, has announced the launch of the latest Bottled-in-Bond expression, from its George Dickel Tennessee whisky brand.

The new release follows the George Dickel Bottled in Bond Spring 2007, which won Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and a score of 95 at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge earlier this year.
To be labelled as Bottled-in-Bond, a spirit must be composed only of the same class and type of spirits, the product of one distillation season by one distillery and unaltered from the original condition or character. It has to also be stored in oak containers a federally bonded warehouse, under US government supervision for at least four years and be bottled at 100 proof – 50% ABV.
Commenting on the launch, Nicole Austin, General Manager and Distiller, said: "Since its first inception, I've been proud to work on the George Dickel Bottled in Bond Series as it's a line-up defined by credibility and transparency. While each new release has had their subtle differences, they've overall shared the same hallmark traits as well as consistently offered whisky drinkers a quality Bottled in Bond option at an approachable price point. Whether you're a longstanding fan of the series or just now finding it, we hope that you're able to enjoy this new offering from the George Dickel Bottled in Bond Series."
George Dickel Bottled-in-Bond Fall 2008, will be available later this month, from selected retailers across the US, for a RRP of $44.99.
