Jack Daniel’s Does A Single Barrel Select Release With Country Singer Eric Church

The cross pollination of the singing and distilling worlds is always an ongoing experiment in the art of two creative fields trying to create a bottling that fans of the singer will love enough to buy up bottles of. For the latest such expression Tennessee whiskey distillery Jack Daniel’s and country music superstar Eric Church have a new offering on the way.

The new Jack Daniel’s Eric Church Single Barrel Tennessee Whiskey, according to those behind it, was drawn from barrels “personally selected by Church and will feature the artist’s name on the specially designed black and gold embossed label.” Jack Daniel’s Master Distiller Jeff Arnett assisted Church in the selection of barrels from the top floor of a warehouse on Coy Hill at the distillery.

“My love for Jack Daniel’s is for the whiskey but it’s also about a can-do, small town attitude, where community, loyalty and hard work are the qualities the crafters of this American icon hang their hats,” said Church in a prepared statement. “I’m honored to have my own special release of Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel.

“Whether we raise a glass at a table with a handful of our friends or from a stage with thousands, let’s raise our glass high. Cause that’s where it belongs.”   

“This special whiskey is reflective of Eric himself – bold, rich in character, forward and something that can be enjoyed by those with a taste for a well-rounded whiskey and a unique and memorable sipping experience,” added Arnett.

As it stands now plans call for this whiskey, bottled at 94 proof, to be available starting this month. Limited official tasting notes suggest that “each barrel offers a significant depth of aroma ranging from sweet vanilla and caramel to toasted and charred oak. The whiskey flavor offers the signature sweet notes of a Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel upon entry but quickly gives way to a complex, full and heavyweight mid-palate.”
