J.W. Dant Bottled in Bond Bourbon 1990s

An old bottle of J.W. Dant Kentucky Straight bourbon.

Joseph Washington Dant was a Kentucky distiller during the 1830's He was famous for making whisky using a log still. This was an old time method from when the settlers did not have the money for a copper still. A section of tree trunk would be hollowed out with a copper pipe running through it. The hollowed section would be filled with the fermented mash and steam fed through the pipe to start distillation.

This Bottled in Bond version of the brand was bottled at the required 100 proof. It was distilled at Behrnheim distillery, then still owned by United Distillers. The whiskey was sourced by Heaven Hill who bonded it and bottled it in 1993. Interestingly, a fire 3 years later destoryed Heaven Hill's distillery in Bardstown, forcing them to purchase the Bernheim facility in 1999. it is now known as Heaven Hill, and the brand is distilled and bottled there to this day.
