The Jack Daniel Distillery has introduced Jack Daniel’s Bonded Tennessee Whiskey and Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash Blended Straight Whiskey as the first two permanent expressions in the brand’s new Bonded Series.
Both Jack Daniel’s Bonded and Triple Mash are Bottled-in-Bond at 100 proof, with packaging inspired by the original design of the 1895 Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey bottle.
As stipulated by the Bottled in Bond Act of 1897, a bonded whiskey must be distilled by a single distiller during a single season, matured in a government bonded warehouse for at least four years and bottled at 100 proof.
“The Jack Daniel Distillery has been making exceptional American whiskey to the highest standards for generations, before and after the Bottled in Bond Act, dating back to the days of Mr. Jack himself,” says Chris Fletcher, Jack Daniel’s master distiller. “Jack Daniel’s Bonded and Triple Mash are a nod to our heritage with a touch of innovation and craftsmanship. These whiskeys are another opportunity for both our friends and new drinkers to explore and discover everything Jack Daniel’s has to offer.”
Jack Daniel’s Bonded is Jack’s recipe of 80% corn, 12% malted barley and 8% rye. Barrels were selected for their characteristics of deeper color, flavor and aroma, the company reports, which bring a darker, richer and more oak-forward character to Jack Daniel’s Bonded.
Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash is a blend of three straight Bottled In- Bond whiskeys: 60% Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Rye, 20% Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey and 20% Jack Daniel’s American Malt. Each expression is distilled in Lynchburg, TN, in the same distilling season, aged to the stipulations of the Bottled in Bond Act, then blended and bottled at 100 proof.
Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash has notes of honey, malt and soft oak, the company reports.
Jack Daniel’s Bonded and Triple Mash launch across the U.S. beginning in May with international markets to follow later in 2022. Both will initially roll out in 700-ml. bottles for suggested retail prices of $29.99 and $32.99, respectively. They will be available for pre-sale through ReserveBar beginning May 3, including a limited edition Jack Daniel’s gift item while supplies last.
