Jack Daniel’s to Release Highest Proof Whiskey in Distillery’s History


November 2, 2021

Jack Daniel’s announced the release of the 2021 Single Barrel Special Release, Coy Hill High Proof. It marks the highest proof whiskey ever released from the Jack Daniels Distillery.

The high-proof Tennessee Whiskey was aged on the top ricks of the oldest barrel houses on Coy Hill, the highest hill on the Jack Daniel Distillery property in Lynchburg, Tennessee. The limited offering whiskey is bottled at proof points ranging from 137.4 up to 148.3.

Coy Hill High Proof is made from Jack Daniel’s classic 80% corn, 12% malted barley and 8% rye grain bill. The whiskey is mellowed through 10 feet of sugar maple charcoal before entering barrels located within Coy Hill barrel houses #8 and #13. The whiskey is then matured until it is later bottled, uncut, from those single barrels. 

The Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel annual special release is hand-selected from the highest parts of our barrel houses and bottled from single barrels just like the Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Select, Rye & Barrel-Proof collection.

The limited-edition Coy Hill High Proof will hit shelves starting in November, available in a 750ml size with an SRP of $70.00. (Due to the high barrel strength, the bottle should remain upright at all times unless being poured into a glass for drinking in a responsible manner.)
