Jack Daniel’s 150th Anniversary Whiskey is produced the same as famous Old No. 7, (80 percent corn, 12 percent barley and 8 percent rye) however to make this whiskey distinct they matured it in barrels with a “heavy toast” and light char to produce a totally unique Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey.

“For this 150th anniversary whiskey, our coopers ‘slow-toasted’ the barrels to bring out the rich flavors and aromas of the wood, creating a contemporary expression of an 1866 barrel char. We wanted to offer a unique whiskey that we think collectors and consumers alike will enjoy for their own celebrations and is as special as the anniversary that it celebrates.” -Jeff Arnett
