Jack Daniel distillery introduces new Tennessee Rye whisky

The Jack Daniel Distillery is aiming to release its new Tennessee Rye in the US market next month.

The new product is manufactured at the Jack Daniel’s Lynchburg distillery by a team led by master distiller Jeff Arnett. He said: “Our whiskey-making process is so special, and it just makes sense for us to create our version of one of America’s first whiskeys."

The new Tennessee Rye contains a grain bill of 70% rye, 18% corn and 12% malted barley, which is carefully charcoal mellowed and matured in a new American oak barrels crafted by its own coopers.

Arnett added: “This is rye whiskey made Jack’s way. We think our grain bill provides the ideal taste and character, one that is bold and balanced and not dominated by one flavour.”

At 90 proof, the Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Rye is said to offer rich flavours from start to finish.

"The new Tennessee Rye contains a grain bill of 70% rye, 18% corn and 12% malted barley."

Arnett further added: “Following the launch of Single Barrel Rye in 2016, we have heard from so many of our friends who like Jack Daniel’s rye whiskey.

“Our goal with Tennessee Rye was to create a versatile whiskey with a balance of flavours that can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks or mixed in a classic American whiskey cocktail.”

Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Rye will be retailed across the US and will be available in 50ml, 750ml and 1l bottle sizes.

Tennessee Rye will be offered at a suggested retail price (SRP) of $26.99 for a 750ml bottle.
