Jack Daniel’s launches rye variant into the UK

Location: USA

We speculated about it in 2014, wondering if Jack Daniel’s would ever launch its rye variant across the Pond. Well it’s finally happened, with the Tennessee whiskey company launching a rye whiskey into the UK market.

Described as ‘spicy in flavour but sippin’ smooth in character’ by the guys at Jack Daniel’s, the 45% abv, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Rye is made up of 70%, 18%, 12% malted barley and is charcoal mellowed for a distinctively Jack finish.

The whiskey is said to be much drier than Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, with accents of caramel and vanilla, followed by a warm, peppery rye character finish. The aroma is said to be a blend of soft fruit layered with an underlying rye spice and oak.

Jack Daniel’s recommends you serve it neat, on the rocks, or of course, mixed in a cocktail.
