Jack Daniel’s debuts Heritage Barrel whiskey

24th October, 2018 by Nicola Carruthers

Jack Daniel’s has extended its Single Barrel Collection with the launch of a limited edition whiskey that “celebrates the historic art of barrel-making”.

Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Heritage Barrel is limited to 200 barrels

The new Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Heritage Barrel has been made using “unique barrel toasting techniques of the earliest coopers”.

Master distiller Jeff Arnett and his team selected from hand-crafted ‘heritage barrels’ that were slowly heated to achieve a “deeper, richer toasted layer” before being charred.

The expression was then matured at a lower proof in one of the highest elevated barrel houses in Lynchburg, Tennessee, and then bottled at 50% abv.

It is described as a “flavourful and rich” whiskey with “warm notes of vanilla and sweet baking spices, with a lingering finish of oak”.

“The unique barrel toasting behind Heritage Barrel creates a flavour you won’t find in any other single barrel expression,” said Arnett.

“We believe we’ve made a whiskey that would make our earliest coopers and Mr Jack himself proud.”

Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Heritage Barrel is available in a 750ml format with a suggested retail price of US$64.99. It is limited to 200 barrels.

Earlier this week, Jack Daniel’s launched a limited edition range of experimental whiskeys, called the Tennessee Tasters’ Selection.
