JACK DANIEL DISTILLERY ANNOUNCES 2021 SINGLE BARREL SPECIAL RELEASE: COY HILL HIGH PROOF
Limited release hits shelves in November for whiskey drinkers looking for a bolder, higher proof Tennessee Whiskey
LYNCHBURG, Tenn. (November 2, 2021) –Today, Jack Daniel’s announces the release of the 2021 Single Barrel Special Release, Coy Hill High Proof. This high-proof Tennessee Whiskey was aged on the top ricks of the oldest barrel houses on Coy Hill, the highest hill on the Jack Daniel Distillery property in Lynchburg, Tennessee. The limited offering whiskey is bottled at proof points ranging from 137.4 up to 148.3 and marks the highest proof whiskey ever released from the Jack Daniel Distillery. The Coy Hill High Proof gives an aroma of seared oak and dark brown sugar with flavors of bold baking spices and a lingering finish of toffee, smoke and rich leather.
Coy Hill High Proof is made from Jack Daniel’s classic 80% corn, 12% malted barley and 8% rye grain bill. The whiskey is mellowed drop by drop through 10-feet of sugar maple charcoal before entering barrels located within Coy Hill barrel houses #8 and #13. The whiskey is then matured until it is later bottled, uncut, from those single barrels. “The Coy Hill High Proof is all about pushing the limit for single barrel maturation to create one of our boldest, most innovative whiskeys we have ever released,” says Jack Daniel’s Master Distiller Chris Fletcher. “It highlights one of the unique attributes of the Jack Daniel Distillery – the dry air of the highest floors of the barrel houses – and the amazing impact it has on whiskey making.”
Each single barrel annual expression highlights the craftsmanship and innovation mindset in whiskey-making at the Jack Daniel Distillery. The Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel annual special release is hand-selected from the highest parts of our barrel houses and bottled from single barrels just like the Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Select, Rye & Barrel-Proof collection.
The limited-edition Coy Hill High Proof bottle is bottled at barrel strength and will hit shelves starting in November, available in a 750ml size with a suggested retail price of $70.00. Due to the high barrel strength, the bottle should remain upright at all times unless being poured into a glass for drinking in a responsible manner.
