What does Bottled in Bond mean?
If you’re curious about what Bottled in Bond means, you’re not alone. Here is a brief history.
In the late 1800’s many whiskeys were of questionable quality. Barrels were sold directly to retailers and bars who often stretched the supply by adding various fillers before selling it. The result was a tainted whiskey with flavorings and coloring added to hide what was in the bottle.
In 1897, the Bottled in Bond Act was introduced as the United States’ first food purity law. Under this law, whiskeys labeled as “Bottled in Bond” had to be distilled in one six-month season (either from January to June or July to December), aged for at least 4 years and bottled at 50 ABV (100 proof) with nothing other than water added to adjust strength. The whiskey had to be bottled at the distillery (“in bond”) under government supervision and labeled with the distillery at which it was produced and bottled. These requirements ensured transparency of the source and that the whiskey was unaltered.
These days “Bottled in Bond” remains a marker of transparency and quality and we’re happy to continue the tradition.

Cherry TRIT Whiskey Jam
