In recognition of the relationship between two American icons, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, in association with Frank Sinatra Enterprises (FSE), is launching a new ultra-premium expression in Travel Retail this October. Crafted from special “Sinatra barrels” the Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Select is bottled at 90 proof and comes in a specially designed one-liter bottle. The premium package also includes a specially designed gift box and book telling the story of the legendary Jack Daniel’s and Frank Sinatra relationship. A Travel Retail exclusive, the suggested retail price for Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Select will be determined market-to-market.
Hand selected by the Master Distiller Jeff Arnett, “Sinatra barrels” used to make the product were crafted to provide an extra full character and darker rich amber color by exposing the spirit to extra layers of toasted wood on the inner surface of the barrels. The extra rich barrels were mingled with classic Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey and bottled at 90 proof resulting in a character that is full of oak and spice notes with an exceedingly smooth vanilla finish. The smooth, bold character of the whiskey is meant to embody the smooth, bold character of the man.In addition to Travel Retail, Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Select will be available at the Jack Daniel’s Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee in 2013. Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Select was introduced on October 23, 2012 at the Tax Free World Association meeting in Cannes, France. The news conference was attended by Frank Sinatra, Jr., who later performed at the launch event for the product honoring his father.
