The Bottled in Bond Act of 1897 represented a watershed moment for American whiskey. For the first time, a group of Kentucky whiskey makers stood up for the quality of Bourbon, demanded an end to spurious blending and rectifying practices, and required legal protections for the best of the best.
Laws of Bottled-in-Bond
No Blending: Composed of the same types of spirits, made from the same class of spirits
Same Season: Must be distilled in the same season by the same distiller at the same distillery. Legally, January-June or July-December
