    Re: Bottled in Bond's

    We have a number of 100 proof Bourbons that would qualify as Bottled in Bond, Old forester Signature and Birthday Bourbon, Knob Creek and Rock Hill Farms come to mind, I'm sure there are others. New think in the industry seems to believe the term is a bit old fashioned and no longer understood by consumers.

    I kinda like the class of BIB's and hope the label doesnt drop off. They usually offer great bang for the buck, and its kinda fun to compare them against each other.

    KCSB might technically be a BIB since its a single barrel, therefore it has to meet the requirements. But, with regular KC being multi batch pours, might it not meet some of the requirements?

    Mellow Corn and Rittenhouse if you want to expand to non-bourbon.

    What the heck is a 'multi batch pour'?

    By definition, a NAS or > 4 year old single barrel bourbon bottled at 100 proof is BiB. So RHF and FRSB are BiB even though they are not labeled as such.

    I think the BiB labeling being old fashioned excuse is bunk. Old Forester Signature could contain bourbon from multiple distilling seasons which would DQ it from BiB status. I can't believe that BF removed the BiB designation and added Signature just because it seemed old fashioned or misunderstood by consumers...the brand has old in the name for goodness sake. Dropping BiB gives them flexibility...that's my take.

    I don't buy that explanation either Scott. Losing the statement allows them to mix whiskys from different years and so increase their flexibility.

    Re: Bottled in Bond's

    Dropping the labeling provides flexibility and reduces cost and storage issues. I believe barrels used for BIBs have to be stored separate from other inventory (bonded warehouse) and you have to pay for the certification. Given that these are typically less expensive plans (more historical than planned), these costs may not seem like much but they are real, especially when you have the flexibility to divert these brands to more profitable products.

    As for other bottled in bonds, both the CEHT Small Batch and Single Barrel are BIBs. I believe only one was noted above.

    I also believe David Nicholson 1843 is BIB and, while not bourbon, Rittenhouse Rye and Mellow Corn are also BIB.

    sorry, poor wording on my part. i meant multiple barrels. KCSB would have to be a BIB. KC, on the other hand, could technically have some 10yr mixed into it to keep a certain profile, which would negate the single season requirement.
