The designations are regulated by the authorities and divided into the following categories:
- Straight Bourbon: Straight means pure, without any additives. Without the designation, it may be stretched up to 2.5% with additives. At least 2 years of storage in new oak barrels is mandatory.
- Tennessee Whisky: Jack Daniel's falls into this category, as the name suggests, it must be produced in Tennessee and filtered with charcoal.
- Kentucky Straight Bourbon: This is distilled in Kentucky and matured in the country for at least one year.
- Bonded Bourbon: A vintage whisky from a single distillery, matured for more than four years in American "Bounded Warehouses".
The terms single barrel (exclusively from one barrel) and small batch (particularly small volume of whiskey) are not defined by law. One of the best known bourbon brands with an impressive variation of different maturity levels and price ranges are Jack Daniel's and Jim Beam. Our bourbon whiskeys are available in a variety of rich flavors.
