Single Barrel Rye is the latest addition to the Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Collection range.

Rye, at 94 proof, is the Jack Daniel’s Distillery’s third offering in the Single Barrel Collection. It is crafted using a 70% rye, 18% corn and 12% malted barley grain bill, said to give the whiskey a clean, sweet tone at the tip of the tongue with a more distinct and slightly shorter finish than other Single Barrel offerings.

Rye also uses the same cave spring water from the Jack Daniel’s Hollow and proprietary yeast process that’s been used in the distillery’s 150-year-old Tennessee whiskey recipe. From there, the liquid enters a charred White American oak barrel, crafted at Jack Daniel’s own cooperage and set to age in the upper regions of the barrelhouse. In this resting place, the whiskey is exposed to the extreme temperature variations that a Lynchburg, Tennessee season brings. The company says the interaction of the whiskey, the wood and the environment brings out distinct flavour profiles that transcend what you would expect of a rye whiskey to become Single Barrel Rye.
