Thread: Bottled in bond

  1. #1

    Bottled in bond

    Forgive me if this has been adressed before. I have tried to read all of the posts on this subject. My question is simple: How many bourbons are now available that are labelled "Bottled in Bond" I would like to set aside a special place for these in my display ( and for comparison) but I do not know how many there are. Any help?

    If we knew where you were located that would make things easier. Some states have much more variety in limited distribution brands. Kentucky and Texas come to mind as being more bond-friendly.

    Edit: I found embedded in one of your posts that you're in the heart of bourbon country. Kentucky locals should be able to better help, especially with what Heaven Hill and former Barton products are available.

    Like Roger said it all depends on where you live certain BIB are only available in limited locations. Like Tom Moore is only available in LA and TX. There are a ton of BIB that are the same thing with just a different label slapped on.

    I can tell you the bottled in bond brands that I have seen or heard of lately available. From Heaven Hill; Heaven Hill 4 year old, Heaven Hill 6 year old, JTS Brown, JW Dant, Old Fitzgerald, Evan Williams (BIB available in some states), Rittenhouse (rye), Mellow Corn (corn whiskey).

    From Beam; Old Grandad. I think Buffalo Trace makes an Ancient Age BIB, and Barton makes a Very Old Barton BIB. There are probably others.

    Heaven Hill also puts out Henry McKenna 10yo BIB.
    Wild Turkey American Spirit is BIB.

    Old Forester Repeal might be, I know it was 100 proof.
    Knob Creek is also 100 proof, but does not say Bonded. I guess Beam pays the taxes on that upfront, rather than going through a Gov't Bonded Warehouse.

    Bonded doesn't mean as much today as it did 100+ years ago, at least regarding quality. There are enough government regulations on all alcohol to insure a decent minimum quality, and most distillers today are really trying to put out a good product, not trying to put one over on the public.

    IMO, YMMV, and any other disclaimers as necessary.

    Get them while you can, BIB's are a dying breed.
    Old Grand Dad BIB is a good one and Henry McKenna BIB is also a 10yo single barrel.

    Old Potrero Hoatlings is also BIB, though it is a rye and not a Bourbon. It and Ritt 100 may be the only BIB ryes. They're the only ones I can think of anyway.

    Re: Bottled in bond

    Not to derail the thread, but wouldn't any 100 proof single barrel bourbon be bottled in bond by definition? (like FRSB) Perhaps the Four Roses warehouses don't have the "bonded warehouse" shingle hanging over the door.

    From the Wikipedia article on bonded spirits:

    JTS Brown Bourbon
    J.W. Dant Bourbon
    Heaven Hill Bourbon (4 and 6 year old versio
    Henry McKenna 10 year old
    Old Fitzgerald Bourbon
    Old Grand Dad Bourbon
    Old Portrero Hoatling's Rye Whiskey
    Rittenhouse 100 Rye Whiskey
    Wild Turkey American Spirit Bourbon

    And:
    Lairds Apple Brandy
    Mellow Corn Corn Whiskey

    Re: Bottled in bond

    I wish Texas was more BIB friendly. We do have Tom Moore BIB only available here and Louisiana, but we do not have HH 6 year, Colonel Lee BIB, JTS Brown BIB and probably other HH iterations I am not aware of.

    We also have OF (both fitz and forrester), Dant, OG and HH 4year.

    I can go across the border to the north and get the Mellow Corn, but like casino's, not here.

    There is also the now defunct Old Charter BIB if you can find it. Good luck on your BIB journey!
