Red Line Bottled in Bond Bourbon Whiskey
Bottled-in-bond is a designation that was created in 1897 by way of the Bottled in Bond Act. The act's purpose was to protect the integrity and authenticity of aged spirits in America. Because sellers and bootleggers at the time were adulterating moonshine and other non-aged spirits with colorants, flavorings, and occasionally lethal chemicals to falsely market their spirits as legitimate, a spirit marked as bottled-in-bond was essentially guaranteed in its quality.
