Whiskey Review: TX Whiskey Bottled-in-Bond Texas Bourbon,Whiskey Review: TX Whiskey Bottled-in-Bond Texas Bourbon, Whiskey can be 100 proof without being bottled-in-bond, but meeting the requirements ensures everyone gets a high-quality spirit. Firestone & Robertson Distilling Co. has released a bottled-in-bond straight bourbon under their TX Whiskey label. Aside from tasting the TX Whiskey Bottled-in-Bond Texas Bourbon, my favorite aspect was opening the bottle. The label and bottle themselves are pretty generic, but the bottle stopper on the other hand is quite remarkable. No cap is the same, and mine looks like black alligator skin.

You know America has its priorities set straight when it passes the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897, a decade before the Food and Drug Act. Caring more about your alcoholic beverage not killing you is definitely more important than worrying about what is in your food. To be “bottled-in-bond” means a whiskey is made by one distiller at one distillery during a single distillation season. The whiskey also ages for a minimum of four years in a government bonded warehouse, and gets bottled at 100 proof.
