The new Bonded Series from Jack Daniel’s is range of bottles that adhere to the stipulations of the 1897 Bottled in Bond Act, which was introduced three decades after the distillery was founded to give consumers certainty in what they were buying. The Act dictates that, to be considered Bonded, the spirit has to:
- be distilled by a single distiller in a single season;
- be matured in wood
- be matured in a bonded (tax exempt) warehouse for at least four years
- be bottled at 100 proof
The first two bottlings in the series, Bonded and Triple Mash, adhere to these rules and nod to the distillery’s heritage. Discover them below.
A must-try for fans of Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7, this bottling takes the classic recipe of 80% corn, 12% malted barley, and 8% rye and dials up the intensity thanks to the higher ABV. Caramel, oak and baking spice notes are joined by stewed fruits sprinkled with brown sugar.
The second in the series is a blend of three straight Bottled-In-Bond whiskeys – 60% Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Rye, 20% Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey 20% Jack Daniel’s American Malt. Notes of honey, oak and toast are joined by dry spice and browned bread.

When it was founded in 1866, the Jack Daniel distillery was the first registered distillery in the United States. Its founder, Jack Newton Daniel, learned the art of distilling from the then slave Nathan ‘Nearest’ Green, and the two would go on to create what is now one of the world’s most famous whiskies, with a legion of fans which famously included Frank Sinatra.
