Brown-Forman, has announced the launch of a new Jack Daniel’s Bottled-In-Bond expression.

For a whiskey to be classed as Bottled in Bond, it must meet a strict set of rules that have been in place since the late 1800’s, including being the product of a single distillery from a single distilling season, aged for a minimum of four years and bottled at 100 Proof/50% ABV.
This latest release from the Lynchburg, Tennessee distillery, is said to deliver notes of dried fruit and toffee, imparting a bold, complex and balanced taste, with a rye spice finish.
Commenting on the launch, Chris Fletcher, Jack Daniel’s Master Distiller, said: “The Bottled-in-Bond designation on Jack Daniel’s Bonded Rye is another stamp of quality, assuring consumers that every drop of our whiskey is made right here in Lynchburg at the Jack Daniel Distillery with the highest standards possible. Bonded Rye features our uniquely crafted rye grain bill at 100 proof, delivering a unique and balanced profile that drinkers have come to expect and seek out from our rye releases.”
Jack Daniel’s Bonded Rye, will be available later this month from select retailers in the US, for a RRP of $31.99.
