Navy Yard Bottled in Bond – #13

  Distiller's Drawer #13 Navy Yard - Bottled in Bond   Barrel: P100 Age: 4 years Matured In: New #3 Char 53 gallon American Oak Cask, DSP MA-15006 Bottles Produced: 234 Proof: 100 Details: The term ‘Bottled in Bond’ is rooted in transparency and truth in labeling, an issue we at Privateer are passionate about. 19th-century bartenders and spirits lovers were angered that so many products on the market were branded as authentic hand-crafted spirits but were in fact made by large factory spirits ‘rectifiers’ and packaged in a disingenuous way. The US Government responded in 1897 by issuing the regulations for labeling a product ‘Bottled In Bond’: the spirit must be distilled by a single distiller, in a single season, at a single distillery, aged no less than 4 years at a federally bonded warehouse, and bottled at 100 proof at the same distillery. A ‘Bottled In Bond’ rum had not been released since the end of prohibition, until now.
