On March 3rd, 1897, Congress passed the Bottled in Bond Act. It was a hard-won victory that gave honest-to-goodness whiskey an indisputable mark of authenticity.
To be labeled Bottled in Bond, whiskey must be:
- The product of one distillation season, from either January to June or July to December.
- Aged in a warehouse for at least four years.
- Bottled at 100 proof (U.S.)
- Include the distillery at which it was made and bottled on the label.
One man led the way for this new legislation, Colonel E.H. Taylor., and whiskey has never been the same!
So, join us for this member-only event as Kris Comstock from Buffalo Trace Distillery talks to us about Colonel E.H. Taylor, Bottled-in-Bond, and more while we enjoy some of the E.H. Taylor Bottled-in-Bond expressions.
