Jack Daniel’s has operated with one simple whiskey recipe for 100 years…until now. The distillery started quietly working on a rye whiskey recipe a couple of years ago, and has now unveiled what’s being called “Jack Daniel’s Unaged Rye.” Master Distiller Jeff Arnett explains how his new whiskey fits into the Jack Daniel’s tradition, and why an unaged spirit is being released years before a fully mature version will be available. We’ll also have highlights from the Glenfiddich 125th Anniversary Party in Dallas this week, the latest on Scotch whisky exports, and reaction to last week’s interview with “Midwest Whisky Olympics” organizer Greg Ramsay.
