George Dickel Bottled-In-Bond Tennessee Whiskey (750ml)
Tennessee, UNITED STATES
$220. 00 Bottle
Another entry into the Bottled in Bond category, this time from Nicole Austin, the new General Manager and Distiller of Cascade Hollow Distilling Co. She started at George Dickel in 2018. “We wanted George Dickel Bottled in Bond to be rooted in authenticity, quality and truth, reflective of the values we feel are most important when making Tennessee’s finest whisky,” she explains. “The aged whisky stocks we have access to here at Cascade Hollow are absolutely beautiful, and it’s important to me that we create whisky that’s sure to be a great value for the quality you’re getting.” If you’re unfamiliar with the Bottled in Bond concept, it refers to the Act of 1897 requiring that the whiskey be a product of the grain of a single season, made by one distiller at a single distillery, and aged in a federal government-bonded warehouse. The act came as a response to the widespread adulteration in American whiskey around the late 19th century. It was an attempt by the federal government to act as a guarantor of the spirit's authenticity. Sporting a mashbill of 84% corn, 8% rye, 8% malted barley, Dickel’s edition was distilled during the fall season of 2005 and matured on site for thirteen years before being bottled at 100 proof (50% ABV).
