The name is Bond. Well, actually, it is Jack Daniel’s – and JD has a new 100-proof version of their whiskey that honors the Bottled-in-Bond Act, which set USA standards for the spirits industry in 1897 and prevented us from all drinking moonshine made out of shoe leather or rutabagas.

That year, U.S. Congress in 1897 passed the Bottled in Bond Act, which required that whiskey meet certain criteria, including being aged at least four years and bottled at 100 proof at one distillery during a single season – which is what Jack Daniel’s does with their Bottled-in-Bond offering [which is said to contain notes of banana, caramel and vanilla].

Jack Daniel’s Bottled-in-Bond will be sold exclusively in airports in one-liter bottles for $38 per bottle.
