The new Jack Daniel’s Bonded Tennessee Whiskey and Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash Blended Straight Whiskey are the first two permanent expressions in the brand’s latest range, called Bonded Series.
For those who aren’t incredibly familiar with bonded whiskey (which is understandable due to its rarity in recent years), it’s a mark of regulation that derived from the Bottled-in-Bond Act in 1897 which was the very earliest initiative to establish some sort of legal standard for the American spirit.
The Bottled in Bond Act of 1897 states that a bonded whiskey must be distilled by a single distiller during a single season, matured in a bonded warehouse for at least four years and bottled at 100 proof (50% ABV).
Jack Daniel’s Bonded is comprised of 80% corn, 12% malted barley, and 8% rye. Triple Mash is a blend of three straight bottled-in-bond whiskeys: 60% Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Rye, 20% of the flagship whiskey and 20% of the brand’s American Malt expression.
“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,” said Chris Fletcher, the brand’s master distiller.
