Exciting news for whiskey lovers worldwide: Jack Daniel’s introduces their new Single Barrel Rye! The third model in the Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Collection is now available nationwide, having been launched to the public this past Tuesday, February 9th. The Single Barrel Rye is crafted using the Jack Daniel distillery’s 150-year-old Tennessee whiskey making process which consists of a robust yet balanced flavor profile with hints of dried fruit and vanilla.
The liquor is a uniquely ‘Jack’ grain build of 70% rye, 18% corn and 12% malted barley, the distillery’s first new grain recipe in 100 years. The third of its kind in the collection of Jack Daniel’s rye offerings, this luxurious liquor is a fully matured rye whiskey made by the best.
Having waited 100 years, for Jack’s new recipe, this Rye is a miracle for whiskey lovers everywhere. The clean and sweet tone behind the distinct deep wood taste of this Jack comes from the intricate process behind the brand’s distillery and the Tennessee environment it is created in.
“Rye was one of the earliest forms of American whiskey and as the Master Distiller at Jack Daniel’s, I’m proud to honor that history with the release of Single Barrel Rye. There is a reemerging 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.” – Jeff Arnett, Jack Daniel’s Master Distiller
The final piece to Jack Daniel’s journey into rye whiskies, this Single Barrel Rye follows the footsteps of Rested Rye, created in 2014 and Unaged Rye, created in 2012. Be sure to get a sip of each and taste the difference in maturity, like a true Jack enthusiast.
